June 26, 1956 – April 1, 2024

Robert Franklin London, Jr., a man who lived life with passion and joy, was born on June 26, 1956 in Danville, VA. On April 1, 2024, surrounded by love, he peacefully passed away at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital at the age of 67.

Known for his boundless love for his family, his eyes lit up whenever he talked about his daughters, Maria, Diana, and Ashley. He was their rock, their biggest cheerleader, and the source of endless laughter and love. Robert’s spirit lives on in his brother, Victor, who shared countless adventures and stories with him, always with a side of laughter and mischief.

Robert was a man of many passions. From cheering on the Carolina Tar Heels to passionately supporting the Washington Redskins, revving up for NASCAR races, and hitting the golf course with friends and Father Bob London, his enthusiasm was contagious. His love for life extended to the simple pleasures – savoring cold beers, relishing oysters, puffing on a fine cigar, throwing a themed party, and cruising down the beach road with the windows down and his hand out, basking in the warm summer sun.

As a self-employed building contractor, Robert’s craftsmanship and skills left a lasting mark on numerous projects and communities. His dedication, hard work, and attention to detail were evident in everything he touched, reflecting his commitment to excellence and integrity.

In the mornings, Robert’s laughter could be heard echoing through the house as he whipped up delicious breakfasts and a pot of coffee for his family, creating cherished memories around the kitchen table that will be forever treasured.

Robert is survived by his father, Robert Franklin London, Sr., Lori Bundy London his loving partner and special friend of 40 years, his daughters Maria Pridgen (David), Diana Nicole London, and Ashley Marie London (Lucas), his brother Vic London (Candy), and his adored grandchildren, Robert, Savannah, and Dakota. He was preceded in death by his beloved mother, Nancy Marie Hopkins London.

Robert’s spirit, love, and zest for life will forever remain in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing him. May his legacy of laughter, love, and joy inspire us all to live each day to the fullest, just as he did.
