In Loving Memory of Robin Jackson Chapman

Robin on his beloved drums

4th July 1968 - 23rd July 2012

Robin’s funeral was held at Stockman’s Service Chapel, Brixham on 3rd August 2012 with his family and many friends.

It opened with Robin’s favourite music from American Wrestling and a poem that ends:

“Do not think of me as gone

I am with you in each new dawn

So do not stay here to morn and cry

For now I’m free

And I’m on high”.

Robin and his mother Theresa were founder members of ACE in October 1989.

Robin loved life. He was always cheerful and positive. He loved to talk about his favourite subject, American Wrestling, with all its drama of colourful characters and their bone crunching antics.

He loved taking part in ACE activities: Sports Mobility, with Jon, where he liked skittles, darts and winning; Music, with Mick, where he loved playing his drums and surprising his mother with his singing.

We are all sad at the passing of another ACE member, but we rejoice in our fond memories of Robin. He will be missed.

We thank Theresa for all her hard work, cheerful enthusiasm and loving care.
