Steven B. Robbins Foundation

Two years ago this week, the Old Bro Network lost one of our own ..... brother Steve Robbins (EpSig 678) left us way too soon, losing his battle against leukemia. 

Old Bro Bill Schlichter sent in the following note about something that Steve's family has recently set up in his memory .....

The 27th of September marks the 2 year anniversary of Brother Steve Robbins’ (EPSIG 678) passing.  He fought the good fight going 2 for 3 against melanoma, colon cancer, and finally Leukemia. 

Steve was active in the House throughout the mid-70s with his biggest contribution as the UCLA Mardi Gras Lambda Chi Fun House Committee Chairman.

After graduation, Steve moved out to the Palm Desert/Palm Springs area where he hired on with the Coachella Valley Water District.  His successful 25 plus year career resulted in his 2003  selection as the water district’s General Manager, the position he occupied until his passing.   Upon his passing, the Water District Board of Directors voted unanimously to dedicate the new water district building which had just completed construction, in Steve’s name.  Today, the Steven B. Robbins Memorial Building is home to the Coachella Valley Water District.  
Steve’s surviving spouse, Karen, and his three daughters; Ashley, Kristyn, and Kirklyn had the idea of honoring their Father by setting up a 501c3 non-profit organization raising scholarship funds for those children whose parents have fought cancer.  You can visit the Steven B. Robbins Foundation Facebook site at   Make sure and put a LIKE on the page to let the girls know we are thinking of them…..and paying respect to their Dad’s name.

 Old Bro Network would love to see ALL of you Old Bro's out there honor one of our own, just click over to the Facebook page and give them a LIKE ..... if you feel like donating to this worthy cause, you'll find info there about how to do that as well.
