August 20, 1981 - February 8, 2020
Robin Dale Gainey Jr., age 38, passed away peacefully at his home in Tickfaw, La on Saturday, February 8, 2020 after a brief illness. He was born August 20, 1981 in Hammond, La where he graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas High School and attended college at SLU. Robin had a great passion for living that he shared with his many friends and family. He was the General Manager of Rips on the Lake in Mandeville, La. His great love for food and top restaurants along with his extraordinary kindness and outstanding personality contributed to his achieved success. Robin found great joy in being in Gatlinburg, TN and the Great Smokey Mountains which he thought of as his second home. This was his happy place, sitting out on the deck with a roaring fire, enjoying the beautiful scenery, wading in the mountain streams, going downtown to eat Fannie Farkels or taking his son to the Amusement Center in downtown Gatlinburg. But his greatest love and achievement was his young son, Robin Dale Gainey III, who was his best pal. Showing him all the different experiences that the world has to offer, Robin was a great dad. This love for his son will be his greatest legacy. Robin is preceded in death by his Great Grandmother Mary Giaratano, his grandfather Salvadore Fillippello, Grandfather John Douglas Gainey Sr. and Grandmother Catherine C. Gainey and his Uncle John Douglas Gainey II and Aunt Patricia Ross Gainey. Robin was a proud, determined man who had so much to offer this world. At this time his family and friends are in great pain and disbelief that he has left us too soon. We will never forget him and always remember him. Living to cherish his memory are his parents Roslyn Prieto (Clay) of Mandeville, La and Robin Dale Gainey Sr of Tickfaw, La. One son Robin Dale Gainey III. In addition, Aunts Clara Sharkey (Ray) and Nancy Woods (Coyt); Uncles James David Gainey (Marla) and Rene Fillippello and his beloved Grandmother Audrey Fillippello; step- sister Calla Prieto; Cousins Randy Woods, Cindy Duvall, John Gainey III (Suzanne), David and Laura Gainey, John IV, Elizabeth, James, Matthew Gainey; Ashton Lauren Duvall and Griffin Mathew Duvall as well as his many friends.
