Date of Birth: December 24, 1965
On September 11, 2001, Don Robertson, a 35 year old broker with Cantor-Fitgerald went to work on the 105th floor of World Trade Center tower one and was never heard from again. Don left behind his wife, Karen, and their four children, Michael, Matthew, Madison, and Kevin, ages 9 through 17 months.
Don was a great father who coached two hockey teams and helped Karen coach a soccer team. He loved his family and it definitely showed in his home. His house was a virtual fantasy land for children. He was always buying go-carts, kayaks, surfboards, fishing poles, etc., for him and his children to enjoy together. He didn’t do this to surround himself with “stuff,” he did it so his kids would stay close to home, and he could then stay close to his kids. His wife, Karen, was a stay at home Mom. Incredibly, she spoke at Don’s memorial service with their four children at her feet, praising Don’s love and commitment for his family.
Don was loved by everyone. He was an unbelievable friend to many. Anyone that he came into contact with was immediately taken with him. He possessed a personality and a smile that drew people to him. A great ice hockey player, Don always loved playing the game with his buddies a few times a week. Our hearts are broken, but the memories will keep us going on. God bless you, Don, and may you be up there scoring goals and entertaining all.
