Memories & Candles
I have fond memories of "Uncle Robbie" from my early days in Arlington, VA. My father, Thomas A. Miller, Col. USAF retired/deceased, worked with Robbie at the Pentagon. My dad and mom, Betty, were best friends with Robbie and Jane in the early 1950s. We moved away but always stayed in touch over the years. After I graduated from university in 1970 I went to DC to sightsee and job-hunt, staying with Robbie and Jane. Robbie was a great tour

My best wishes to everyone at this time. Bill was great friend who welcomed me into Rotary and into his teaching program at GW. I will always remember him warmly and with respect.

My prayers and strength to the family through these sad times. Your dad, like mine, were very special in their lives. It shows in the love and unity of the Robinson family. Words do not meet the concrete dignity of Robbie's life, legacy. and honor. He is at peace now.

To the Robinson Family,
My sincere condolences on the death of your Father. I have know him since Pentagon days and have since kept in touch when seeing him at the Virginia Grand Military Band concerts and missed him at the last one.
May God comfort you during this difficult time and may he rest in peace.

On behalf of the Air Force Public Affairs Alumni Association, I want to convey our condolences to Colonel Robinson's family, and to express our deep appreciation for his very significant contributions to the military public affairs profession. He was a true pioneer and his oral history in the Defense Information School library will be a valuable student resource for years to come.

Dear Neil and Judy,
We have fond memories of spending an evening with your dad, sharing our views of world history. He was an important part of what makes America great.

It was our honor to meet your dad at your home on two differenct occasions. He was truly a gentleman, kind and caring towards us. Indeed, it is evident that he greatly influenced your lives, as well as those of many others, over the years. May God bless you during this difficult time and comfort you through faith, friends, and warm memories.

Bill, we all shall miss you in Rotary. You were a true mentor to me and many Rotarians. We shall miss your smile and
positive attitude I know that you and your dear bride are now at eternal peace together. You lived a long wonderful life. I know how much your family shall miss you.

You were one of the greats. When I joined Rotary in 1996 you basically held my hand and taught me the ropes. You always had a smile for people-you especially excelled in making the Rotary "spouses" feel included. Words cannot express what your family is going through. Your passing has left a void in our world
