Robi was born in Worcester, one of five children of Yolanda N. (St Marie) Beriau and the late Paul L. Beriau.  Robi was raised in Worcester on Grafton Hill.

He most enjoyed the time he spent with his son Robert, whether attending music concerts and shows or sharing precious moments enjoying each other’s company. Robert was his most cherished gift in life. 

Robi was "one of a kind" as many would say about him. His sense of humor, sharp wit, tender and caring heart will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
