    When Hattiesburg’s Robin Wentworth took his last breath on the morning of June 13, the Pine Belt lost one of its favorite adopted sons. 

    Just eight short months earlier, he had been diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, and doctors were clear that his health would soon decline.

    Refusing to give up, Wentworth continued to live his life to the fullest – making the most of his time left.
