February 9, 1993 - June 25, 2013
Robert Michael Thomas Barnard came in to the world on February 9, 1993 in Longview, Texas. He was named after his maternal grandfather, Robert, and his paternal grandfather, Thomas, and since Michael was one of his mother’s favorite names, it became a second middle name.
He was sweet-natured, curious, and a joy as a child growing up in Plano, Texas. There, Robert enjoyed soccer and basketball and loved to play video games. During those years, Robert also developed a love of skateboarding and would spend hours perfecting his techniques and practicing ollies and kick flips. As Robert grew older, he developed a razor-sharp wit and a dry sarcasm that would keep everybody laughing. He was a gentle soul and never judgmental of anyone. Robert loved his family dearly and their time spent together and they will carry those precious memories with them forever. Robert made several friends and kept them close in his thoughts and heart. Robert graduated Plano East Senior High School in 2011. On June 25, 2013, Robert passed away too soon.
He is survived by his mother, Joni Ann Rodgers, his father, Craig Thomas Barnard and his siblings, Kimberly Ann Foard, Ashley Christine Barnard and Jason Thomas Barnard, and his many loving relatives. Robby is missed by his family and friends who will cherish his memory.
