Obituary

Robin was born in Washington D.C. to Edward and Dorothy Green on December 7, 1937. He went to school at Archbishop John Carroll High School and graduated from the University of Maryland. In 1966, he met the love of his life, Heidi Rondeck. Upon first seeing her, he told a friend, "I'm going to marry her," and he did, two years later in Limburg, Germany, on December 2, 1967. They remained happily married for 52 years.

A loyal employee, Robin worked for the Motion Picture Service / Army and Air Force Exchange Service for over 32 years, serving our men and women in the armed forces to improve the quality of their lives in wartime and in peace. He served around the world, from American bases in Vietnam to Wiesbaden, Germany, and eventually stateside, where he settled and retired in Arlington, TX.

He was blessed with a single child, his daughter Jennifer, who was his pride and joy.

When she married, Robin quickly became a favorite relative of her husband’s extended family as well. Robin’s two grandchildren quickly became attached to their “Opa,” always wanting to talk to, visit and generally spend time with him. In return, Opa was known to spoil them as only a grandpa can.

More than a wonderful husband and father, Robin was a great friend. Anyone lucky enough to come in contact with him quickly learned he was a man of his word and was genuinely thoughtful, generous and humble. He had a sincere interest in the life and well-being of everyone he met, and had a kind word for everyone. He was also known to surprise you with his quick wit and dry humor.

Robin was very devoted to his faith and was a member of the St. Vincent De Paul Catholic Church community for over 35 years. He is preceded in death by his mother and father, and his sister Carol. Robin is survived by his wife Heidi Green, His daughter Jennifer and her husband Brett Moneta, and his grandchildren, Connor and Abby.

Memorial Services will be postponed until a later date.

Memorials: In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please make a donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in his name, www.stjude.org.

How lucky we are to have someone that makes saying goodbye so hard.
Having known Robin for 52 years there is a heartfelt absence when he is gone. We met Robin in 1968 in Wiesbaden West Germany. Gary and Robin worked in the Army and Air Force Motion Picture Service office in Mainz-Kastel. Robin arranged for our stay in the American Arms Hotel while we awaited the arrival of our household goods from Texas, and the birth of our son, John.
We were in attendance at the wedding of the most eligible bachelor of AAFMPS, Robin, and his beautiful blonde wife, Heidi on December 2 in a magnificent cathedral. Even though Heidi was wearing her grandmother's underwear, she was gorgeous. (Ask her.) In 1970 the AAFMPS ladies had a baby shower for Heidi and me. Blue for Heidi and pink for me. When Mike was born in June and Jenny in August we traded a few items. We have pictures of Mike and Jenny in the playpen together, cute as can be. Gary remembers playing chess with Robin on the floor next to them. Wonderful memories.
In 1973 when we were both living stateside, we started the tradition of Easter dinner at the Greens, and Thanksgiving at the Deatherages. We did this quite a few times even though we both moved around and it was sometimes at a distance to make it. It was always tons of fun.
When we lived in Burke, VA, the Greens were living in Reston, VA. We had some big trees behind the house on Brook Ford Lane. Robin came over to help Gary chop one down and break it up into firewood. It was a huge project and of course they were concerned about the tree hitting a house. With ropes and superior planning they made it through with no big problem.
When we lived in Arlington, TX the Greens came from St. Louis for Thanksgiving. We went to St. Louis for Easter. After the Greens moved to Arlington, Gary and Robin played golf together many times. In 1988 the Greens went to Colorado with us to stay at the cabin at Green Mountain Falls. We always had such fun together. A few years later they came out to California for son David's wedding. After the wedding we all went to Lake Tahoe for a few days for fun at the beach and gambling at the Hyatt.I
In 1996 we brought the new year in together with Robin and Heidi at our new home in McKinney, TX. In 1997 they were at son Mike's wedding in Dallas. Whenever we could, we got a group together to have dinner at our favorite restaurant, Joe T. Garcia's in Fort Worthy. It was just heaven on earth to sit out on the patio around the pool with the Berry's, Peimann's, Mueller's or Woods and all of our families drinking Margaritas and eating the wonderful Mexican food. I know Robin will be looking down on us the next time we go.
Robin and Heidi visited several times at the house in Incline Village. We had great fun river rafting, hiking, picnicking, and laying in the sun at Burnt Cedar Beach.
Our last trip together was in April 2018 to Maui, We had a two-bedroom time share that looked out on Ka'anapali Beach. It was great fun to go out looking for whales, eating great food and swimming in the warm watr.
The last time the group was together was Christmas 2018. We all gtathered at an Italian Restaurant in Dallas for dinner. There was a driving rain storm or as the locals call it a gully washer and there was talk of calling the evening off. " No way," said Robin, and he got there. That is how Robin was. Can do!!
Robin was a fine Christian gentleman. Heidi said she use to dread seeing a car stopped on the side of the road because she knew Robin would pull over and offer to help them even if it was not convenient. Good-bye, Robin. We know where you are. We will miss you and your great love for life. Hope we meet again.
Your friends,
Gary and Susan Deatherage

Robin's niece Susan Ferrara visited Robin and Heidi in May 2016 in Arlington Texas. The Photo is of his nephew Rob Camplair, Heidi, Robin, Susan and Susan's husband Dave Lawrence. Robin was a caring and compassionate uncle. He flew from Texas to Maryland in 2011 to be a reader at Susan's wedding. Our thoughts and prayers are with Heidi, Jennifer and the entire family.

Heidi, Robin, and James and I took a trip to the Hill Country to participate in the Wine and Wildflower tour. One of the first vineyards we visited was in Llano where we tasted and then purchased some wine. We had taken a picnic lunch with us, and the owner of the vineyard invited us to have our lunch at some tables he had set up under the trees. We did and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was just one of the enjoyable times we had with our good friends, Robin and Heidi.

I couldn't have asked for a better father in law. He was kind, supportive and caring. And even though I knew his daughter was his pride and joy, he never once gave me the evil eye. Everyone I've talked to who met him once or a thousand times felt they had a special connection with him, And they did. He was just that way. If he spent any length of time with you, he genuinely cared about you, and what was important to you. My life is better for having known him.
