Robbie Perry Smith
A celebration of life for Mammoth resident Robbie Perry Smith is planned for Saturday, April 30 at a location that will be announced in the near future.
Born Nov. 22, 1949 in Hollywood to Helen Beuscher and Robert C. Smith, Robbie died Sunday, April 10, 2011 from complications of a long-standing illness.
His illness could not diminish his kind, funny and generous spirit. Robbie’s sweet nature and gentle personality will remain forever in the hearts of those who loved him.
Robbie’s mother, known by her stage name, Wanda Perry, got Robbie involved in the motion picture industry as a child extra. He was a graduate of Hollywood High School.
His curiosity about the mountains led him to Mammoth in 1976, where he fell in love with skiing, hiking and Merry Gay. They loved to walk the places less traveled and excelled at finding good points in secret places.
He was a fearless adventurer who saw the world with a boundless sense of awe and wonder, inspiring laughter and fun at every opportunity.
He was an accomplished carpenter, water skier, story teller and good friend.
Robbie is survived by his siblings, Charlie Brown and Joyce Breslin; Merry Gay; and countless friends and admirers.
