Life Story for David Douglas Robb

It is with heavy yet loving hearts that we say goodbye to our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.

Doug was known for his caring spirit, curious mind and strong will.

He was always willing to help his children and grandchildren by teaching and talking with them. He loved and respected his wife, Adina, his ‘sweet pea’. He loved to plan parties for her, buy her special gifts and make sure she traveled to see their family and on trips to Europe. He truly cared for and was interested in people. Whether you were a close friend or relative, an acquaintance or a stranger, he took the time to talk and listen to you. Even when he was very sick he was more interested in hearing how you were feeling than talking about himself. Wherever he went, be it the dialysis ward or a family gathering or out for coffee, he would always greet every person with a smile and ask how they were doing.

Doug’s curious mind was always seeking answers to the many, many questions he had. He had to figure out how things worked and try things out for himself. He liked to try new foods, new gadgets and new roads. If there was something new to be explored, he would dive in and try it out without hesitating. Whenever anything was broken, he would figure out how to fix it.

Sixteen years ago Doug started dialysis and began to lose his health. This was extremely hard for a man who had been a type A personality his whole life and was always on the go. His strong will and faith kept him going through two kidney transplant surgeries that were unsuccessful as well as countless other surgeries and complications. Through all his struggles and pain, Doug remained steadfast in his faith and kept a positive attitude. He was a pleasant patient who always spoke highly of his medical team and was thankful for the care he received.

We will dearly miss Doug and will always remember him. Doug, may you rest now in God’s hands and enjoy health and be at peace.
