Robyn E. Talley was welcomed into the arms of our Lord on February 6, 2018 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, July 25, 1961 and lived there until his graduation from Belaire High School in 1979.
After graduation, he moved to Orlando , Florida where he loved all outdoor sports including boating, scalloping, fishing and camping. He retired after 21 years of service with AT&T as a software engineer and was fortunate to work from home during many years of his service. He leaves behind a host of friends from his 30 years in Orlando.
Rob moved to The Woodlands in 2013 to be near family and was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2015. Throughout his treatment and subsequent hospitalizations, he maintained a fierce commitment, determination and sense of humor with all who treated him and for his prognosis.
He is preceded in death by his father, Enoch Talley, mother Edith Talley and brother-in-law, John Goodwin. He is survived by his sister, Jennifer Goodwin, brother, James Talley, nieces Claire Goodwin, Hillary Haynes, spouse Charles Frank Haynes, Abigail Talley and nephews Paul Goodwin, Noah Talley and Judah Talley.
