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.
