Christian Robinson

Age 14

Port Richey, Florida

Big heart gone. But he lives.

He was an eighth-grader with a big heart and lots of charisma. He was a fun, loving, and caring boy who tried to make people laugh every day.

“I know he had such high hopes for himself. I know we all struggle in different areas. But he wanted better for himself,” his middle school counselor said.

Christian Robinson, 14, was shot in the head at 6 p.m. on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 2018, in Port Richey, Florida. His mother chose to donate his organs, helping five people from a 20-month-old boy to a 70-year-old woman.
