Robeson’s Family Moved to Virginia
Stacey is survived by his wife, Angela Wells Robeson; their three kids, Colton, Kailey, and Zoie; and his sister, along with the rest of the extended family.
He was the main breadwinner of the family that has now lost their main source of income. Jalaina has tried to raise funds to support her brother’s wife and kids.
In January, Jalaina posted an update on the fundraising page stating that Angela and the kids have moved from Oregon to Virginia. Among the many hardships Angela is facing, she struggled with a broken heater during the winter.
Shortly after the update, Angela thanked everyone for their support. There haven’t been any updates on them since.
