YARBROUGH, Robert Gordon, 87, passed away on December 30, 2018, in Virginia Beach, Virginia while visiting his daughter and her family for the holidays.  He is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Ada Lee Yarbrough (Bullion), and resided at their home in Mechanicsville, Virginia.  Robert was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia and shared great stories about riding streetcars down Broad Street, fishing and swimming under the Nickel Bridge with his father and going to the 10-cent matinee all day on Saturday. He'll always be remembered for his love of family, fishing and making friends and strangers laugh with a round of corny jokes.  He was preceded in death by his younger sister, Doris Yarbrough Davidson and his older sister, Blanche Yarbrough Beasley.  He is also survived by his daughter, Rhonda Kunsch, his son-in-law, Greg Kunsch and grandchildren, Marissa and Alexander Kunsch.  The family will receive friends on Saturday, January 5, from 1 to 2 p.m., at Monaghan Funeral Home, 7300 Creighton Pkwy., Mechanicsville, VA 23111 with funeral services immediately following at 2 pm. Interment will be private.  Memorial donations may be made in lieu of flowers to your chosen nonprofit.
