“When tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand. That an angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand; The angel said my place was ready, In Heaven far above, And that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But when I walked through Heaven’s Gates, I felt so much at home, for God looked down, smiled at me, And told me “Welcome Home.” So when tomorrow starts without me, Don’t think we’re far apart, For every time you think of me, I’m right there in your heart”
Robert Gerald Metcalf, a Carolina Beach native, beloved father, husband and friend. Born on April 4, 1967 Robby was 53 years young. Survived by his wife Teresa Metcalf, children Joseph and Marie Metcalf, mother Dianne Metcalf, siblings Jamie and Gina Metcalf and countless others. Preceded in death by his father Butch Metcalf, grandparents Linwood and Frances Lewis and Leatcho and Lou Seay. Robby passed peacefully and surrounded by his loved ones March 5, 2021 as his friends were pulling in their last haul at sunset. Having spent his last day doing exactly what he loved; Robby was tearing up a dirt bike track with his son Joseph right by his side. We find peace in knowing he never took a day for granted, living his life exactly how we all preach to do. Robby was as loyal as the day is long, to friends, family and all those close to him. To know Robby was to love him, he was truly unique and one of a kind. He was a passionate man, Robby lived each and every day to the fullest and never missed a single moment doing what he truly enjoyed most. He was a fearless man, always spoke what was on his mind and never missed a beat on a witty comeback. He was a genuine man of few words, but never ceased to make you laugh or give you the shirt off his back if you were in need. One thing we can say without a doubt is that Robby would have moved Heaven and earth for his children, they made him more proud than any father could imagine. He was a family man through and through. Robby was also one of the last true fishermen we will all have the pleasure of knowing. Active in his community, avidly fighting for commercial fishing rights, Robby never gave up fighting for a cause that was close to his heart. We pray for your never ending peace, big haul ins, and that every golf course is your own personal dirt bike track up in Heaven. Robby has left us with a lifetime of memories we will cherish forever. You are always in our hearts, forever by our side, we love you and pray to be brought together in Heaven. Until we meet again.
Funeral arrangements will be held at Seaside Chapel (105 Dow Rd) at 10am followed by a celebration or life at 1314 St Joseph Street (tentatively at at 11:30).
