Obituary of Robert Henri Paris

Avid musician, dedicated squash athlete, and sensitive soul Robert H. Paris died unexpectedly at the age of 27 on Friday August 16, 2019. 

Those who knew Robert, even just a little, will remember his gentle demeanor, his warm heart, and the undeniable twinkle in his eyes. He attended Rye Country Day school, the Eaglebrook School and was a graduate of The Hotchkiss School. After graduating from Santa Clara University, he settled in Los Angeles where he pursued a music career until his untimely passing. All his life Robert worked hard to cultivate his artistic abilities and was most recently planning a move to Nashville.

Robert will be missed every day by his parents Robert and Maria, by his sisters Pilar and Nina, by his aunts, uncles, cousins, and his many, many friends.
