Crestwood honors Roby with state, local resolutions for his service as city’s mayor

The city of Crestwood honored former Mayor Gregg Roby’s service to the city with a resolution of its own last month, along with resolutions from the Missouri Legislature and Christmas in Crestwood.

Roby resigned as mayor after four years June 8 due to health reasons from his battle with cancer.

The Missouri House of Representatives offered a resolution in support of Roby which said he “will be greatly missed by all those who had the distinct pleasure of knowing and working with him” and wished him the “long and enjoyable retirement he so richly deserves.”

The first draft of the Board of Aldermen’s resolution was six feet long with all of Roby’s accomplishments, acting Mayor Tony Kennedy joked.

“We couldn’t find a plaque large enough to list all your accomplishments,” Kennedy said. “We certainly miss all your leadership up here, and we want you to know that we’re thinking about you every day.”

The resolution commended Roby for his “dedication and professionalism” and a tenure “marked by his efforts to promote the progress and good management of the city of Crestwood.”
