"If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them."
Robert Raymond Robbins 7/18/1935-1/13/2021
Beloved Robert has transitioned into the afterlife. Robert "Bob" was well known in Kent, owning the Texaco on 240th and Benson and another in Cascade Vista for many, many years. He was an avid golfer until he lost his leg. Bob loved going to the casino and even won a few jackpots. Fishing was one of his favorite activities, especially Salmon. Bob was a quiet man and enjoyed watching and listening to people in the room. Bob enjoyed drinking Diet Coke and vodka. He would pour the vodka in the can, thinking he was slick. Bob lived for anything sweet such as chocolate and candies or ice cream. A plate full of waffles and syrup would light up his eyes. Bob served in the US Army in the 1950s. Bob was a member of the Wilderness Golf Club in Maple Valley, WA.
Bob was loyal to his family and very supportive. You could have found Bob rooting on his son at high school football games, or sitting in the audience for a grand child's school play, among many other family events.
His beautiful wife, Jackie and him were married for 66 happy years. They originally met in 4th grade where Bob would traumatize Jackie on the play ground slide. He was a star football player for his high school in Silverton, Oregon.
Robert is survived by his wife of 66 years, Jacquelyn Robbins, daughter Cathy Russell and husband Dean of Covington, WA , son Marty Robbins and wife Jan of Spokane Valley, WA, grandchildren; Karen, Katie, Kevin, Tyler and Alyson and one great-grandchild Riley.
