Robb showed me what life was like having a big brother, a protector, and love of family. He extended this same caring for my daughter many years later, and I am forever grateful. You have provided us with lasting memories and wonderful stories to share. You will be forever in our hearts and greatly loved.

So thankful to have called Robb my uncle. His booming voice and presence were always followed by a big bear hug. I will cherish the memories I have growing up with Robb, his kiddos (love you guys!!) and our entire extended family. Rest in Peace, uncle Robby. I love you!

My name is Christopher church. I played on the Carrillo basketball team. I am a best friend of Justin Leggins. Mr Odom would attend the basketball games because his son played on the team and he graduated the year before me. I can vividly remember playing in a summer league game going into my junior year and I got a block on the opposing team and I was fired up and I started yelling because I got the block. From the side line I hear this “oh yea! Let’s go! Whoo!!!!” And it startled me because he was just as fired up as me, actually even more. It kind of scared me because he had such a deep voice but I found out who he was and paid attention more after. I can still remember that memory because in summer leave at srjc parent can stand on the baseline or sideline and it was basically right on the court. He was always very nice to me in passing and I always felt he was a good man.

I had the privilege to coach Robb in both football and basketball! Robb played both passion! He loved to compete and the more competitive the situation the better! Robb was one of the best offensive linemen in WBL history. His competitive nature lead to him hyperventilating after an overtime game against Hastings!! He recovered by blowing into a brown paper bag!!

My sincere sympathy to all the Odom family! I did have the pleasure of visiting the family ranch where I met both Robb and Angela. Mostly I remember the cows! RIP Robb.

Robert "Robb" James Odom, Jr

2024-06-09

Robert James Odom, Jr. (Robb) age 64, known for his unwavering faith, passed surrounded by family on June 9. Preceded in death by his father, Robert James Odom. Survived by his mother, Winette Towery Odom; brother, Randy; sister, Allison (John) Furth; long-term partner, Angela Lynn Smith; children, Derek (Carly), Krista, and Hunter (Rebecca); and 13 grandchildren.
Robb was born in Fernandina Beach in 1960. He graduated from White Bear Lake High School in Minnesota, where he still holds the basketball record for most single game rebounds. He served in the Army in Germany before coming back to the US to start his family. Robb enthusiastically coached each of his children in sports. He returned to Florida to be closer to his parents and the beloved Odom Ranch in Keystone Heights. Robb was fortunate to see each of his children make him a grandfather, by far his most rewarding role in life was that of Granddad.
His family will hold a private service July 23 in the sanctuary of Memorial United Methodist Church. Rather than flowers, memorials are preferred to St. Johns House of St. Augustine, or donor's choice.
Robb filled every room he entered. He was a man of passion, humor and conviction, he will be sorely missed.
