Class of 1987 Message List
Boyd Robinson - 32
04/24/03     John Kiser  (1987)      jkiser@pobox.upenn.edu
Hi all,

I felt I should pass along the unhappy news that Boyd Robinson passed away Tuesday 4/4. His death was caused by problems stemming from diabetes, which he had struggled with since about 10th grade.

His family has asked that memorials be directed to:
American Diabetes Association
P.O. Box 2680
North Canton, OH 44720

This can also be done online at

Boyd and I stayed close over the years, and whenever either of us was down and out about whatever, we'd just talk about the wild days of high school. Sharing stories and remembering people would always get us to laughing about stuff we did and wondering what happened to people. When I discovered this discussion board last year and began catching up with people, I'd always tell him about it, and he got a big kick out of it all. (He'd never managed to get internet wired ... but you can bet that if he had, the '87 board would be a heap livlier!)

Boyd was remarkably talented, gentle and complex, and I'm going to miss him terribly. I'll carry the effects of his influence on my life and remember all the fun we had--and the trouble we got into--for the rest of my days.

I've posted just a couple of pix on my site--one from my wedding in Ontario this past summer and another from the basement of my parents house in '88. http://pobox.upenn.edu/~jkiser/br-jk.html

I invite anyone so moved to share any memories you have of Boyd.

Best,
jk
