LT. GOVERNOR MOURNS PASSING OF ‘RIP’ ROEBUCK

U.S. Virgin Islands Lieutenant Governor Gerard Luz James II Tuesday extended condolences to Ms. Helen Roebuck and the entire Roebuck family on the passing of Richard Rueben Roebuck Sr. on St. Croix last Thursday.
"I extend my sincere condolences to the entire Roebuck family on the passing of a stalwart within the St. Croix community," said James. "I trust that the good memories you have of him will help ease your grief while giving you strength and comfort during this difficult period," the lieutenant governor said.
Affectionately known as "Rip" by friends and family, Richard Rueben Roebuck Sr. was an active businessman in St. Croix, involved in running a dairy and chicken farm and later a heavy equipment firm called ROE-WIN Inc.
"Certainly, Richard Roebuck Sr.’s loss will be felt by the entire community of St. Croix. He had a strong presence in the community, and he also was a strong horse enthusiast," James said. "Because of that, he imported some thoroughbreds to the island, one by the name of Helmar which still holds the record at Randal Doc James Racetrack."
James said he would always have fond memories of the times he spent as a young boy with Mr. Roebuck’s children during the 1960s, especially son Chesley and daughters Joy, Radiance, and Aileen, with whom he spent many weekends picnicking on the island’s beaches.
