William Carl-Johan Courtney Robinson was born on April 16, 1998 in Leesburg, coming into the world in a rush. He just barely made it to the hospital and that was the way he lived his life. He was loving and fearless and often times reckless but he lived in the moment and he was always authentically himself. William passed away on January 14.
