Robert Tinker, a member of YouthBuild's founding staff, passed away this past Tuesday, 11/5/2019. Mr. Rob was the most selfless person to all youth and staff in our program. He would spend hours with each student to make sure they had their basic needs met with food, housing, and health insurance. Robert was never a confrontational person and always brought positivity to our day. He was a true socialist and would give you the clothes off of his back if you asked. The hospital room was filled with the many hearts that have been touched by Rob. He brought hope to a world that needs it and was wise beyond his years. Rob would want nothing more than for us to continue his legacy through kindness, hope, and respect. Smoketown and Newburg would not be the same without the work he has done for those communities. Please prey for his loved one's during this time of grief. Rest in Peace Mr. Rob, you are gone but you will never be forgotten.
