West Seattle Blog… | Remembering Robb Mason, 1958-2022
A week after the unresolved crash that killed Robert “Robb” Mason As he cycled home from his workplace in West Seattle, his family and friends share this memory:
Robert J. Mason, “Robb”, 63, of Seattle, died July 15, 2022 after being hit and run while cycling home.
Born in Van Nuys, Calif., Robb graduated from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma with a BFA in Communications and Broadcast Journalism. Later in his career, Robb discovered his true calling and retrained as a massage therapist at the Brian Utting School of Massage in Seattle. He opened his own practice, RMBodyWorks, in 2003 as a licensed massage therapist. He also received additional training at the National Academy of Sports Medicine, with an emphasis on core conditioning and balance/stabilization techniques.
In addition to his private practice, Robb has also worked at Highline Physical Therapy in West Seattle. As a massage therapist, Robb saw his role as that of a facilitator of positive change and healing, using his massage techniques and listening skills to make a positive difference in the lives of his clients. He was seen by his colleagues and clients as a knowledgeable and caring clinician.
A lifelong sports and fitness enthusiast, Robb enjoyed track and field, baseball, skiing, cycling and golf. He later became an avid hiker, taking advantage of several trips to the Alps in Switzerland to hike with members of his extended family. He marveled at the beauties of nature on these trips, and they served to deepen his reverence and respect for the environment.
Robb and his wife sponsored a child, Alexander, in Ecuador.
He is survived by his wife of 18 years, Claudia Mason (née Perotto), and his sister, Faith Mason. He is predeceased by his parents, William and Imogene Mason, and his brother, Charles.
A private memorial service for Robb Mason will be held on Monday July 25, 2022 for relatives and close friends.
Due to the tragic circumstances of his passing, a memorial vigil in honor of Robb Mason will be hosted by Seattle Critical Mass on July 29, from downtown Seattle to the crash site on SW Spokane Street, just east of the West Seattle Low. bridge.
The Seattle Police Department continues to investigate this collision and has asked anyone with information about it to call the Violent Crime Information Line at (206) 233-5000.
