My heart was truly heavy hearing the news of Robert’s passing. He will truly be missed. He was a wonderful person so full of life and always upbeat. Robert, you will truly be missed. Gone too soon…Rest peacefully, Robert.
Rest in Peace Robert,. My condolences to his beloved family and friends. A true “Gentleman” who was loved and respected by so many.
I didn’t know Robert on a personal level but often ran into him at his workplace. He was always so kind, seemed to have a gentle spirit. So sorry to hear of his passing. Prayers to his family and friends and co-workers. I know he will be missed.
We will miss Mr. Robert! He was a stand-up guy and great employee! He always found a way to make us laugh at work. We will continue to pray for the Lord’s comfort and peace during this difficult time.
I love you sooooo much my Robie!!!
We were so sorry to hear of Robert’s passing. He and Mike worked together at JSRCC. When our kids were little and I’d bring them by, they always loved seeing Robert and that wonderful smile. Our sincerest condolences to all of his family. Rest In Peace, Robert. You will be missed.
Robert and I shared an apartment next to the JSarge Parham road campus for years.
I knew him well. He was, and will be remembered as a one-of-a-kind; a truly unique individual in my experience.
I remember his character, his intensity, his movements, his laugh, his expressions, and the full measure of his reliable massive joy at even the smallest thing.
I’ll also remember his devotion to his daughter. It was impressively deep and spiritually instructive.
I’ll be honest. Robert’s passing is wrong. I don’t know what took him, but it was wrong. The world is now less of a place without him – and now, so am I.
I’m mad. And, I’m sad.
We weren’t in touch after we moved away from the apartment. I found out, years later, that he and I both worked at VCU at the same time, just like we did at JSarge.
I went down to the computer center to see him when he emailed me. Nothing had changed. He was the same Robert!
I’m such an idiot. I should have stayed in touch. Maybe if I had, the grief would even be worse than it is now – I don’t know.
On the surface, no two people could have had less in common than Robert and I. Now that he is gone, I know that didn’t matter at all. I suspect also that he didn’t know what a lasting impression he left with me.
Sadly, even I didn’t know – until now.
I guess this is one more edition of the refrain – If you love someone, for God’s sake please tell them while they’re alive; while you still can and they can hear you through the air that both connects and separates.
Anyway. I remember him well. I salute him now that he has left his pain; leaving us to ours, and me to mine.
I miss you so much and while it is extremely hard for me to fathom that you’re no longer with us. The understanding that God needed you and you’re no longer in pain brings me peace. You impacted every life you touched with just your presence. Your laughter and joy was addicting! I thank God that he placed you in my life at such a young age as my father figure! Blood couldn’t make us any closer! I love you Robie! And my little family will truly miss you!
I can’t find words convey the emptiness and sadness I we feel with the transition of Robrrt. Our prayer 🙏 goes out to his family, hoping the Lord will strengthen them while He mend their broken 💔 hearts. Robert was a mild mannered person always cheerful and a joy to in the midst. We don’t know the number of our days, but it seems like his time was short. We pray that God will rest his soul. He has left a void in our lives.
We have lost a truly caring man. Robert’s death is a great loss to so many. A kind, humble man with a willingness to help everyone. His big smile, his laughter, and expressions of concern are forever etched in my mind. I found him always polite, yet firm in his beliefs. Robert was passionately dedicated to his family and friends. YOU will be missed. Your legacy lives in the hearts of every person you encountered.
Very saddened to learn of Robert’s passing. My deepest condolences to his daughter and his extended family. He provided a loving and caring environment for those blessed to be in his circle. Thank you for being a devoted role model to my family. Thank you for the many provisions. You were the wind under their wings. Rest from your labors. Forever in our hearts.
God Bless and now you are at rest Robbie. Thank you for being there for my Aunt Jacqueline, Marco, and Marian Ragland. You where always so kind and supportive to the rest of our family. We will love and miss you too. I know for myself when your name is mentioned your smile funny jokes will surely bring a smile to my face. Tishina the heart ache will get better in time God Bless you and the rest of the family.
Prayers and condolences to the family and friends 🙏🏾
I worked with Robert at VCU for about 10 years and where ever Robert was there was laughter. I was sadden to hear of his passing. My sincere condolences go out to his family. I pray that God will strengthen you all especially his daughter as he mends your broken hearts. Robert you are finally getting the much needed rest you deserve for all you all good works while here on earth. May God continue to be to you (his family) what you need HIM to be for you right now.
Send you all my deepest condolences and love to the family. May cousin Robert rest in heavenly peacefulness.

Robie I love you so much . You’re so instrumental in my growth and development. I have never been afraid or insecure or scared when I came to you with a problem you handled it. You were literally like a father to me and DNA wouldn’t have made us any closer. As you transition I feel at peace because you are no longer suffering. You are the embodiment of a REAL man. From the talks to the calls to check up on me to us investing together. You’re truly one of one none before you none to come. I love you so much Robie continue to shine and be the light of all of our lives. I promise to always bring you your water. Love you Asy

For everything there is a season, A time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.
To the Family of Robert:
I am sorry for your loss and praying for your comfort. Robert Ible was a kind and gentle spirit who will be truly missed. He was our co-worker at the RPD Headquarters, Records Department. Robert always cared about others, always asking “are you alright”. Robert’s compassion was his family, friends and the country from which he was born. He was a proud person. He would pick up our breakfast or lunch for the entire department, never worrying about himself. One of our favorite lunch order spots was the Jamaican House. I will miss my co-worker walking around the office whom I fondly called “Bambi”. Rest in Peace.
