RESCHEDULED - Robert "Robbie" Cressy, age 44, of Dallas, Texas, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at his residence.

A prayer service will be held at 7:00 PM on Friday evening at the funeral home.

Robbie was born January 22, 1974 in Yankton, South Dakota to Daniel and Sharon (Schoenfelder) Cressy. He was baptized on February 16, 1974 and confirmed on March 19, 1989. Robbie was married to Miranda Herman on December 28, 1996. He was a 1993 graduate of Yankton High School where he participated in the theater program.

After moving to Dallas, he worked for Smart Circle as an inventory logistics specialist. While in Dallas, Robbie was part of The Village Church's 2017 Mission Trip team to Ecuador where he shared his testimony with others and grew in his personal relationship with Christ.

Robbie's greatest joy and accomplishment in life was being a father to his children. He was well known for having a fun loving nature and was a practical jokester at heart. He enjoyed fishing, cooking his famous chili, and travel. He had a love for dogs, cats, karaoke, and Heinz ketchup. Robbie had a generous soul and family gatherings during the Thanksgiving/Christmas season were his favorite times of the year.

Robbie is survived by his mother, Sharon (Dave) Hladky of Yankton; three children: Seth Cressy of Yankton, Devin Cressy and Rachel Cressy of Sioux Falls, SD; granddaughter, Lilyanna Damm of Trent, SD; sister, Jodi (Brian) Ruis and their children, Caleb and Haven Ruis, all of Little Canada, MN; and special friend, Lori Aldridge of Dallas, TX.
