There are simply no words to describe Robbie Mills. A loving husband, father, G-daddy; a respected member of his community and church. Robbie’s world began and ended with his loving wife Chrissy for 35 precious years. No longer here on earth, his presence no longer seen rather lovingly protecting his family from above. A warrior for his Lord and savior, Robbie is with his eternal father.
Robbie’s three girls, Tina, Kayla and Jessie made him prouder than words can describe. Recently becoming a G-daddy of two precious boys, Jett, (20 months), as well as Kade his most recent grandson (2 months). Robbie a proud G-daddy built a 26 ft. life size ship (our Noah), for these baby boys which will bring such fond memories as these boys grow-up playing pirates.
Just as the ship in his backyard Robbie filled his home with projects built by his loving hands, his inspiration was his soulmate and love, Chrissy. Robbie was Richmond County Schools Career and Technical Education Teacher and was passionate about SKILLSUSA student organizations. He enjoyed his job as a teacher, influencing the students along the way as a very positive mentor. His co-workers were an important part of his life and always looked forward to school beginning after summer break. Robbie loved many things, he absolutely cherished ever moment with his wife and children but he also never met a stranger. Robbie enjoyed every person who was fortunate to have crossed his path; whoever was in need he selflessly went to their aid.
Music and singing was his passion, which will be missed hearing him sing as relaxing in their home oasis enjoying the beautiful pool and background.
