William A. Robbins

May 2011

For 65 years, William “Pops” Robbins called Good Shepherd home. On May 29, 2011, the man who was like a father to many, passed away at the age of 74 leaving a void as big as his heart. Born November 20, 1936, Pops, who had cerebral palsy, came to live at Good Shepherd’s Conrad W. Raker Center in September 1946. He was nine years old. Pops moved to the Bethlehem home in 2000. Always engaging and interested in other people, Pops loved being involved in as many things as possible from the Glee Club to participating in the home’s Wheelchair Olympics. Pops was a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Allentown and treasured his faith as he treasured his many friends. There will never be another Pops.
