Dr. Robb saved my life. He told the other Dr's if you have a problem with Mr. ODELL don't pick up his chart. His last words to me after no seeing me for years was. What did you do to your neck. That's why you have had headaches for 22 years. I'll give you a shot to make the pain better for you. He believed in my pain. And found the problem. My neck had collapsed on the inside of my spinal canal. No OP could fix it. I thanked the man. I knew he had my best interests at heart. Sharon and family. You had a man that is walking on streets of gold. He was one Heck of a nice man. I loved him very much.

Rev, Kelly ODell

We know he was tremendously loved and respected in the Albany, MO community and certainly in all the areas he served and cared for patients. Praying that you are all comforted by the wonderful memories you share of Dr. Robb.

Docs Who Care, Olathe, KS

To all members of Dr.Brian Robb’s family, I was saddened to hear about Brian’s recent passing. He will be missed by many people including former patients , co - workers and others he interacted with as a ED physician In Liberty, St. Joseph and other cities and towns in Missouri. I am sorry he won’t be here to enjoy life’s happenings with generations of loved ones as well as his friends. I always considered him a nice and caring person with a ready smile and pleasant social interactions. He spoke with pride about his children. Being a long time citizen of Liberty, he contributed to this community. He gave back to it through providing medical care services and with his consoling bedside manner. I know Liberty High School sport teams appreciated his sideline chats and medical care when necessary. I will miss the waves we exchanged as he drove through our intersecting neighborhoods . One can’t escape the pain of losing others and it is hard to come to terms with a situation such as this involving a younger person of 65 years. May each of you seek God’s comfort and peace as you grieve and reflect on personal interactions when enduring and positive memories were made.

Lesa Feess

Dr. Robb was one of the first ER Docs that I met when I started at Liberty Fire. He was always willing to listen to and answer any questions that I had. It was always a pleasure to bring him pt's because I knew they were in good hands. My deepest condolences.

Steve Sanneman

Simply one of the best. His eyes told the story of the kindness in his soul. He was a stranger to none, and a friend to all. His legacy will live on through his family and every life he touched along the way. Rest in the sweetest of peace, Dr. Robb.

Mary Kunkel

Doctor Rob was too familiar of a face for me growing up (injury visits), but I was truly lucky to have had him around on the sidelines for my high school football career. Great talks and even more laughs, most of us flocked to where he was standing to get his take on things which seemed to lead to too much jacking around. Great man that was a very significant part of my hometown

Zach Alden

I met Dr Robb back when he first started at Liberty Hospital, he even treated me one night I had and unexpected visit to the ER myself. Brian treated me with great compassion and respect as he did everyone he met with a warm smile and welcome. He spoke to everyone no matter their position. He was a wonderful caring Dr and a great person and friend to many, RIP Brian you will be missed. My condolences to his family!🙏

Alison Woods

Sharon, so sorry we could not attend the services for Brian. We are so sorry for your loss. Brian was such a kind and caring person and lived a calling meant for him.

Dr Robb was a kind and compassionate doctor that can’t be replaced. He is now taking care of his patients up in heaven. He will be so missed in the Liberty Community! Thanks for being you!

Lisa Tracy

Dr. Robb was just an all around fantastic guy. I had the pleasure of working under him as my attending physician on the first ER rotation I did as a medical student almost 25 years ago. He was a great teacher then and I was later lucky enough to join him as a colleague on the medical staff. He was always upbeat, smiling, and the ultimate professional. He served as a great role model to so many young physicians over the years and will be dearly missed.

Sam Miceli, D.O.

So very sorry to hear of Brian's passing. I worked at Liberty when Brian was a young ED Dr. and took care of me one night I had to visit the ED myself, he cared for me with great compassion and professionalism and even checked on me the next day. He always greeted everyone he met with a warm smile and treated everyone with respect regardless of who they were. Liberty was very lucky to have had him on their staff as they should have more like him and it is hard to receive this kind of great care with the respect he gave to all. Blessings to his family as he will be missed by many.

Alison Woods

I worked with Dr. Robb for 17 years. He was always kind, ready to help or teach you something. When you looked at the schedule and saw he was coming in you knew it would be a good shift, busy or not.

I leave with this story and vacationing in New York the city that never sleeps! Well I will just say we put New York to sleep that night and it was the best time I ever had as an adult and I will always be singing New York New York with you Brian! Love you!

I worked with Brian at Liberty in the ED. He was the kindest, most caring person with his patients. I am most certain this continued in his everyday life with anyone and everyone. Everyone loved him. Patients were so happy to know they were getting him as their doctor in the ED. They knew that they were in good hands and could trust him with their lives. He was good to his staff. His patients never left the ED without a meal! Lol. He will be missed by so many. He impacted and touched so many lives in the communities he served. He has been rewarded in heaven for sure!

Linda and I first met Dr. Robb when our son Brian was in the emergency room as a young child with an ear infection. At the time we lived in Lawson. Little did we know that one day we would live in Liberty and Brian would be playing on the Liberty football team that Dr. Rob was the team doctor. Brian also worked in the sporting good store that Dr. Robb opened in Liberty. Dr. Robb was not only a very compassionate doctor but a great person. Linda and I will aways be thankful for his friendship. We will both pray for his family.

Bill and Linda Gray

I worked at Liberty Hospital in OB services when Dr. Robb ran our ED for many years. He was kind, professional and always offered support and help.

Dr. Robb was kind, compassionate, friend to everyone and was one of the best Emergency Medicine Physicians. He loved his family so much and was very proud of all of them. We heard many stories with a twinkle in his eyes and a smile on his face.. When you would meet him in the hall he always spoke and asked what was going on in your life and how your family was. He was absolutely one of the “special ones”. I am proud to have worked with him, have known him and consider him a friend. Thank You Dr. Robb for all the lives you touched!!!
