Robbie Rosecrans
always with a handshake & a smile

On Friday, December 20, 2019, the world lost a dear friend but gained an angel. 


Robbie was a kind and gentle soul who loved and was loved by his friends and family. The sparkle in his eye and wide, bright smile lit up any room he was in. Those that knew him will remember his generosity in giving his time to make others feel their worth. He did anything he could to improve the life of a child, and possessed that special quality of wanting to help others. 


Robbie loved children and being around young people. His free time was often spent helping others – he assisted in coaching the Wootton Baseball Team - which brought him so much joy.  He used his love of sports to help inspire players to achieve their goals and reach their potential. His commitment to the team was such that it was hard to tell who loved Robbie more, the kids or the coaches. 

Robbie was also supportive of DCRF.  He often made himself available to help out when he could, participating in our first fundraising event, donating his time to assure its success, and encouraging others to get involved.  We will be forever grateful for his devotion to DCRF and its mission. 

We will miss his kind heart, beautiful spirit and intrinsic good nature. Those who knew him were blessed to have known a soul as kind as Robbie’s.

We would also like to recognize the Rosecrans Family – Bob, Heather, Peter and Ashley – as Angels also.  While grieving the painful loss of their beloved son, brother, and brother-in-law, they used  their tragedy for good  by designating DCRF as the charity for people to donate in Robbie’s memory. Their concern for the well-being of others, especially at a time when they are dealing with their own profound sadness, illustrates their incredible compassion, thoughtfulness and charitable nature – all qualities which they bestowed on their beloved son, Robbie.


We are humbled and incredibly grateful for their gesture of kindness.  It will always be remembered and appreciated.  


Robbie was taken away too soon. His memory will live on through the kindness of his friends and family who have given so generously to honor the memory of Robbie Rosecrans
