MSgt (Ret) James E. ‘Robbie’ Robinson

Mr. Robinson passed away Friday, June 10, 2022, at LMH Health.

Robbie was an honorable, kind, and loving husband, father, brother, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle and friend.

He is survived by his children, sons Chuck Robinson and fiancé Barbara, Columbia, MO, and Brian Parson and wife Susan, Lawrence, KS; daughters Tina Christian and husband Jim, Lawrence, KS, Diana Dissinger and fiancé Keith, Lawrence, KS, Lisa Marshall and husband Danny, Henderson NV; and Kelly Shedd, Florida; and sister Patty Lester, Niles, OH; 20 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren, and loving family and friends.

Robbie loved serving his country with the Air Force at Forbes Field with his fellow Brothers (air refueling) Kansas Coyote’s, and he also had the love for baseball, football, and the Jayhawks. He also loved the game of golf, especially the time he went to Myrtle Beach with his son Chuck and son-in-law Jim with some of his nephews – he never forgot that trip.

He always had fun wherever he went and one of his dearest buddies Eddie enjoyed going to Beaver Lake fishing and having fish fries.

He will be missed by so many family members and friends. If you were a part of his life know that he loved and cherished every one of you! The family would like you to know that your love and prayers for all of us is greatly appreciated and we love you too.

Robbie was quite the roll model for me as a young Airman. I have many great memories of my time spent on TDYs and at Forbes with him. Rest in Peace

I was very fortunate to work with “Robbie”, when I first got hired at the 190th ARW he was one of the guys I enjoyed working with and he worked hard and played hard and made work fun. I have lots of special memories of our deployments and TDY’s together. My condolences to the family, he will be missed but not forgotten, RIP “Robbie”, Msgt Paul Owens (ret) 190th ARW Crew Chief

I was lucky to go on many TDY’s with Robbie. He was always fun and interesting to talk to. Even though I was a “nose picker” ( Crew Chief ) we couldn’t get along without his mechanical expertise. RIP Robbie.
