Remembering Robert Charles deJongh Sr.

Robert Charles deJongh Sr.

On behalf of the members of American Institute of Architects, we join with our territory and nation in remembering and expressing our deepest condolences to Donna, his children and family, partners, associates, clients and friends on the passing of our beloved colleague, Savanero, architect and visionary – Robert deJongh Sr.

Your stories about Bob, the ultimate master storyteller will now resonate in the hearts of all who knew him and become a part of Virgin Islands history.

Bob will be remembered for igniting the birth of modern Virgin Islands architecture. As a member and past president of the American Institute of Architects Virgin Islands Chapter, his service and leadership has advanced our profession both on the local and national levels.

Bob enjoyed life, his profession and his Virgin Islands. His infectious personality and laughter will remain a lasting imprint in our lives.

AIA Virgin Islands created a website for Bob — to send well wishes, photos and videos — at Many continue to populate the site by sending information to [email protected]. Please join us in celebrating the legacy of a great man.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
