    • I’m so sorry for your loss of a wonderful son,father, grandfather and friend. I was good friends with rob when he was in Adrian for college over 30 years ago. We worked together at musicland and I really enjoyed working with him. He made work enjoyable! I haven’t seen him since he left Adrian only once but have been talking and following him on Facebook. He always lifted my spirits and made me smile. Thought the world of him! Please accept my deepest sympathies and prayers for all who loved him!

  • My heart is broken over the loss of Robin. He gave me the most beautiful gift in life, our daughter Samantha. The bond they shared is unbreakable. He was her biggest fan and she was his. I will be forever grateful for him as I couldn’t have asked for a more loving father for our daughter. Robin also gave to me two of the most amazing role models for our daughter, her Grandparents, Chuck and Jan. The amount of love within the Schroeder family I know will get Samantha through this tragedy. I also ask for prayers to give Samantha the strength she will need in the future. Until we meet again Robin I will always make sure out Grandaughters know what an amazing man there Grandpa was.

  • Robin loved his family more than life itself. He always had a smile for everyone and you knew exactly how he felt. He was a hard worker & always tried to help out when needed. He had the best smile, and smiled when you asked about his family. So sorry for your loss. He will be missed by many. Prayers.

  • Dear Chuck and Samantha, I am devasted by the news of Robins passing, my husband Bill and I are greatly saddened . I can’t imagine your pain. We had a lot of good times in the all horse parade. He was a good friend. He will be dearly missed.
