He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Patricia Mattingly Robrecht, his children, Kimberly Robrecht Wrenn (Kevin) of Davidsonville, Maryland and James Neal Robrecht III (Tonya) of California, Md.

Jimmy graduated from Great Mills High School in 1969 and served in the United States Marine Corp until 1972 and the Army National Guard until 1976. Although he was a carpenter by trade and owned and operated Robrecht Construction, his greatest love was being a licensed waterman.
