Robert "Robbie" Vantassel, Iii

October 5, 1983 — October 12, 2021

Robert “Robbie” E. VanTassel, III, of Sharon, Pennsylvania, unexpectedly found peace on Tuesday, October 12, 2021, while at home. He was 38.

Robbie was a 2002 graduate of Sharon High School. He worked for the Davano Paving Company, West Middlesex, Pennsylvania.

Robbie, in his youth, played baseball & football. He also participated in show choir during junior high, performed in the Pennsylvania traveling theatre, and enjoyed playing base guitar. However, as a youth, his true passion was wrestling.

In his spare time, Robbie absolutely loved being involved with his boys and their dirt bike racing.

Survivors include: his mother, Kathleen L. (Vitello) Yesko; his sons, Talon Thompson, Teagen Thompson, and Emerson Michaels; his soon to be born daughter, Robbilyn Michaels; his brother, Donald VanTassel; his sister, Nicole Mascari Flynn; Maggie (TJ) Thompson - mother to Talon & Teagen; Alyson Michaels - Mother to Emerson & Robbilyn; his uncles, Robert (Grace) Vitello Jr., and Donald (Wendy) Vitello; and many cousins... Robbie, in heart, had many children, especially his Marley, Aubrey, Mikey, Makenzie, Delilah, and the newest little one, Bentley... and so many more; his extended family and countless friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Robert & Patricia Vitello, and Robert & Lucy VanTassel; aunt, Patricia (Vitello) Mac Elroy-Sok; uncle, Michael Vitello; and his cousins, Michael Vitello Jr., and Tracey Watt, who he was close to growing up.
