Most recent update mentions a Thank You to Nike and Dom.   Assuming that’s Dom Travis, so good for him using Nike’s resources to help out the family.

When you assume... ::)

That's a message of thanks FROM Robbie's family, including his cousins Nike and Dom.

I just posted his December 2004 Divulge interview from Skateboarder.

There was no wire. Clark's planet needed him.
 Note: Clark Hassler died on the way back to his home planet.

Thank you for this. Those switch flip and switch 180 photos are amazing! While I really enjoy photos in general, it's rare than I'm this hyped on them, but Robbie's style translated so well to these. His pop was so nice

Heads up if you are LA today (May 20) there is a skate meet up at sand gaps (aka beach ledges) in Santa Monica 1-3pm in Robbie's honor. Open to all who want to come pay homage to Bob.
i have nothing to fear but jesse himself.
