Robb’s younger brother, John Dussliere, came to visit in late August, 1995. Robb’s health was starting to yo-yo every day, feeling fine earlier in the day and sometimes feeling bad later.
They loved to jet-ski, so they took one out to the Mississippi River and enjoyed the day.
Robb later believed he picked something up in the river that day that caused him to begin spiraling downward. With virtually no immune system remaining, it was a possibility.
This story aired on WHBF-TV on the 10:00 news, August 28, 1995.
Robb was dedicated to providing shelter and support to homeless people living with HIV and AIDS in the Quad Cities area.
