Robert Dickinson Liebkemann, a native of New Orleans and resident of Kiln, Miss. for more than 30 years, died unexpectedly on Saturday, December 17, 2016. He was preceded in death by his parents, George Frederick Liebkemann, Jr. and Elizabeth Dickinson Liebkemann and his brother, George Frederick Liebkemann, III. A loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather, he is survived by his wife, Kerryn Fitzmaurice Liebkemann; sons: Robert Dickinson Liebkemann, Jr. (Cathay) and Scott Grage Liebkemann (Heather); daughters: Deborah L. Terrell (Jeff) and Lauren Elizabeth Liebkemann; grandchildren: Zachary Scott Alexander, Schyler Hampton Alexander, Liza Parker Alexander, Matthew Robert Liebkemann, and Kyle Scott Liebkemann.

Bobby graduated from New Orleans Academy and attended Tulane University where he was a member of Kappa Alpha fraternity. He enjoyed a lifelong career in the insurance industry as a life insurance agent and longtime member of the Million Dollar Round Table. An outdoorsman and avid duck hunter and fisherman, he was a member of several sportsmen's clubs where lifelong friendships were cultivated. He was cofounder of the Greater New Orleans Tarpon Club and member of the Louisiana Tarpon Club. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and relaxing at his duck camp near Delacroix with family and friends, as well as cruising the Jourdan River on the pontoon boat. Also affectionately known as Sneaks, Pappy and Sweetie, Bobby had a strong passion for living life to its fullest and he never met a stranger. He was generous, kind and loving and more than anything, spending quality time with his family and friends gave him his greatest joy.

I remember Bobby from KA at Tulane. He was always funny, generous and positive. I lost touch after graduation, but remember him fondly.
My condolences to his family and close friends.

Kerryn, Mary Jo's and my prayers are with you and your family. To say we were shocked is an understatement. Having known Sneaks since the 4th grade at NOA brought back many great and fond memories and stories to be told. There was never one like him and never will be another.

God bless.

Words cannot describe how much I will miss my "Sweetie"! I have so many wonderful memories of all of our camping trips, time spent on the Jourdan River or just hanging out on the porch at the log cabin.

My heart goes out to Kerryn and all of Sweetie's children during this very difficult and extremely sad time in their lives.

I met Bobby and Kerryn a week after Hurricane Katrina when they furnished a refuge for me, my wife and several other relatives, mostly strangers, none of whom had shelter either because it had been obliterated or they had come from hundreds of miles away to deliver supplies and help the local family salvage the physical remnants of our lives. And we were not the only refugees enjoying the Liebkemann hospitality. Some stayed almost full-time while we became periodic regulars at the cathedral-ceilinged log cabin. Becoming acquainted with Bobby and Kerryn was the best of the few good things that could be blamed on Katrina. We met occasionally in the intervening years but never frequently enough or of sufficient duration. My greatest personal regret is that I still haven't properly expressed my gratitude and admiration for both Bobby and Kerryn. And now it's too late. Of his survivors I am acquainted only with Kerryn and Lauren. Along with my condolences, please remember the respect in which a great husband and father was held by the families Truett, Mann, Bruce and Ohman.

My heart hurts with you at the loss of this husband, father, grandfather, and friend! I pray you find strength in God's promise of comfort and peace. At times like this I cling to Psalm 27:13, "I would have despaired unless I had believed I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living."
