Obituary for David Christian Robbins

March 3, 2020
Glenside, Pennsylvania


David Christian Robbins of Glenside, PA passed away Tuesday, March 3, 2020. He was 29 years old.

Beloved son of Charles F. and Mary A. (Fleming) Robbins. Loving brother of Benjamin T. Robbins, Timothy J. Robbins and his wife Joy and Hannah E. Robbins. Uncle of Elyse Harper Robbins, Owen Carter Robbins and Ezra James Robbins. David worked for Brightview Landscape where he was employed as an Accountant. Each of his family and friends, treasure our memories of him. He was at heart an intelligent, gentle, free spirit whose interests ran from Star
Trek, Dr Who, the Librarians, Deep Space Nine, Arrested Development, The Office, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension,
to complicated scientific theories, history, politics, and accounting. We will never forget our trips with him to Gettysburg, to Spruce Lake in the Poconos, to the Marine museum in Virginia, Renaissance Faire, and Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

A quick question to David could became a fascinating dissertation on music genres, popular movies, and television shows. He could talk with enthusiastic knowledge about everything from Community, Andromeda, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension , to a multitude of musical genres, and to the plays he worked on in high school, He would then switch to the intricacies of accounting, technical devices, history, and scientific discoveries.

We laugh as we remember his adventures, at Wawa, learning how to parallel park to acquire his driver's license and his talking about parasitic worms during dinner. We cannot forget the hours he spent playing Risk and Parcheesi. We enjoyed talking with him about the Red Wall book series.

He brought joy to those who knew and treasured him. He loved deeply, gave generously, and reached out to those in need. We will miss his laughter, sense of humor, and tender concern. We valued his interesting conversations on a variety of topics. We treasured his ability to give encouragement to those in need. Family and friends are invited to David's Memorial Life Celebration Service on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at 11:00 A.M. from Willow Grove Baptist Church, 3600 Welsh Road, Willow Grove, PA 19090. .
