Family remembers man killed driving golf cart

GROVES- by Haley Bull

Family and friends of 47-year old Robby Wayne Chapman gathered at a relative's home in Groves Friday to remember the father, friend and family man.

"He had a stroke two years ago, about two years ago, and he wasn't supposed to live," Shelly Chapman said. She's the mother of his two children. "He was paralyzed on the left side."

His family also called him a fighter.

"That's what makes it so hard, because he worked so hard to come back from the stroke and then this happened," Chapman said.

Robby Wayne Chapman was hit on the driver's side of his golf cart Tuesday night at the intersection of 4th St. and Highway 366 in Port Neches.

"He was happier than he'd been in so long. I remember the day they got it he text me and said watch out, big daddy's back on the road," Shelly said.

His two older sisters bought the golf cart for him less than a month ago.

"It was something that kind of helped him have a little freedom and get out," his oldest sister, Shawnah King said.

It was a way to lift the spirits of a man family members said always lifted theirs.

"He would do anything, really not just for his family, but for anybody," King said.

Especially for his 17-year old daughter and 22-year old son.

"I know he's up there and he's looking down on them right now," Shelly Chapman said. "Just wanting them to do something great with their life, and take something good out of this, not let it get them down."

Now, his family is looking to draw strength from a man that persevered.

"I know Robby's spirit will always be with us and help us through everything," King said.

The family asked for the community's respect and prayers during this time.
