In Loving Memory

Robin W. Kirby

Robin W. Kirby

October 1955 - June 2021

It is with great sadness that Alan and All Pro Media lost the love of their lives in Robin’s death. However we know that she now resides in her eternal home with her Heavenly Father.  Robin as co-owner of All Pro Media kept things going at home and in the office.  She was a major part of both.  Robin could also be found spending time with children and grandchildren which were a love of hers and Alan’s.  Robin will always have a place in everyone’s hearts from her own family, the business, her church family and friends.  Robin’s favorite scripture Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” provided her the strength to fight her many battles.  We miss you Robin!
