Robert Tansil Wilkie, age 53, passed away on Sunday November 20, 2022. He was born on August 25, 1969 in Memphis, Tennessee.
He was preceded in death by his father Robert Darel Wilkie.
Rob is survived by his mother Helen Wilkie; three children Robert Tyler Wilkie (Amanda), Tanner James Wilkie, and Addison Kay Wilkie; one grandson, Rhett Arthur Wilkie; four siblings, Rene Davis (Mark), Rick Acosta (Peggy), Lisa Notestine (Butch), Elaine Hosea; and a host of beloved family and friends.
Rob was a loving father, son, brother, Poppie, and friend. While raising both of his boys he enjoyed coaching them in many sports. Many referred to him as “Coach Rob”, he was proud of that title. He also enjoyed yard work, if he wasn’t outside trying to win “yard of the month” in the neighborhood he was painting Addison’s nails or braiding her hair. Rob loved spending time with his grandson Rhett. Rob will be missed by all that knew him.
