I just now read on facebook that Bob Robbins (Class of 1940)
died Thurs night (March 10th).
Diana Robbins-Blosser posted this.

"Dad went to be with the Lord last night. He confessed Christ as his Savior in his last days and confirmed it with a squeeze of his hand in his last hours.

Mason (my grandson) said I'm glad he died well-- not glad but I'm glad he doesn't have to be in the nursing home any more, he didn't like it there.
He said what I had been thinking but to guilt ridden to voice. No more pain.
"Out of the mouths of babes!"

She also said that William is making the casket from wood on the farm. She mentioned that it is a big job but that was what William wanted to do for his Dad.
What a neat thing for William to do and I know Bob would be very proud of that.

Thank you for your posting.

I'm a niece of Bob Robbins. My mom called this morning from Topeka, Kansas.

I live in Holland, Michigan and I'm looking for details.

Uncle Bob did receive Christ at the end of his life. We are all thankful for that!

May he rest in peace and without pain!

Heaven is a wonderful place...filled with glory and grace!

I’m remembering his orneriness and laughter. He had a lot of fun being ornery at family events!

Uncle Bob is at rest!

He will be missed! My thoughts are with you all!
