Remember Robin well from our high school days at GWHS-Danville and community college. Us guys out double dating and cruising Riverside Dr. in his red Dodge Demon. Robin was first with Danville Police Department, his brother Ralph, too. Ralph later years with Texas Department of Public Safety. Robin came by to visit every time he was in town. Still miss him. Rest In Peace, Brother.
