My sympathies to the family on your loss.
The Robson Family has been a part my life since i was a Teen. I had some great times with George at a small shop in north Lawrence that Steve and i had together.George would always come over and show us the right way to work on a car or paint a car because the young fellows didn’t know how to do it the right way. I can remember many days George and his sisters would come over to our shop and play cards for hours while we worked on cars. George you will be missed, but i still have many great memories of you that i will never forget. The Robson family your in my thoughts and prayers

Cheryl, sorry to read about George…. remember him from way back… from his Color Press days… he was always had a smile on his face and made you feel good… All the time I worked with you and did not know he was your brother.. You were lucky to have such a sweet guy for a brother.

We truly understand your loss. Your family is definitely in our thoughts. We know that he will be greatly missed.
I am sorry for your loss. George was a warm and generous person who taught many people with disabilities computer skills in the Independence, Inc. computer learning center, and served on the Accessible Residential Options, Inc. board of directors. I appreciated his sense of humor and way he related to all people.
