It is with great sadness that Bob and Buddy announce the sudden passing of Robyn, daughter, sister, mother and friend. Robyn passed away peacefully at the hospital, on Wednesday, November 10th, with family and friends by her side. More than thirty-seven years ago, Robyn began her career at Henley Construction, telling her Dad and Mom that it was temporary. Bob remembers and enjoys sharing the stories about Robyn in her early years, who was an integral part in the growth of the company. How everyday she would do the work of five employees, then load herself down with books and ledgers to take home at the end of the day to work on night at while at home. Robyn made many friends throughout the years through work and in her personal life. May we all offer prayers for peace for Robyn and those who have been part of her life during this difficult time.
