Robbie is survived by brothers Paul Moore of Mayville, MI and Peter Moore of Ocala, FL and sister Anne Moore of Denver, CO. He is also survived by many treasured friends and cherished dog, his “little monkey” Charlie.

Robbie possessed a quick wit, a kind and thoughtful heart and loved making his friends, family and customers laugh with his amazing one liners. Although he preferred his privacy, Robbie was there in a heartbeat to help a friend in need or lend a listening ear. He enjoyed reading, going to the movies, scanning St. Johns obituaries and collecting vintage items to sell on eBay. While living in Las Vegas, he became passionate about gardening in the desert and achieved a Master Gardener Certification.
