SOUTH BEND — Jeffrey David Robertson, 39, of South Bend, passed away Friday, Feb. 22, 2013 in Culver surrounded by family and friends.
Jeff is survived by his parents, Norma Lucas (Jack) of Culver and John Robertson (Jackie) of Plainfield; brothers, Chris Robertson (Cari) of Culver, Josh Robertson of Portland, Ore. and Dylan Robertson of Plainfield; sisters, Hannah Schwanekamp (Dan) of Brownsburg, Michele Vanlue (Kevin) of Plymouth, and Jennifer Brewer (Brian) of Culver; grandmothers, Elizabeth Davis of Culver, Mary Robertson (Teeny) of Plainfield and Joan Even of Mooresville; aunt, Carol Keskney (Kevin) of Florence, Mont.; uncles, Gary Davis (Kitty) of Argos, and Richard Robertson (Kathy) of Xenia, Ohio.
He was preceded in death by grandfathers, Leroy Davis, Alfred Robertson and Alvin Even; and a cousin, Heather Robertson.
Jeff’s spirit for adventure and his ability to engage children will be greatly missed by his several nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was thrilled with the recent birth of niece Addison and was anticipating the birth in July of his namesake.
Beside the time spent with family and best friends Charles, Vu, Mark, Hank, John and Holly, Jeff’s happiest memories involved teaching children the history of Indian culture through native dances as an Indian lore instructor with Culver Summer Camps. The highlight of his Culver experience was performing the infamous flaming hoop dance at a Council Fire with brother Chris and father John.
A family memorial service will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Culver Summer Camps, Indian lore department; Hemophilia of Indiana or Center for Hospice Care.
M.C. Smith Funeral Home, Knox is in charge of arrangements.
