Donald Ray Robbins, of Roy, Utah passed away on July 14, 2023, at the age of 84.
He was born in Crossville, Tennessee on February 13, 1939, to the late Cleo and Leona Beatrice (Painter) Robbins.
Don was a proud Veteran and served in the Army, stationed in Germany.
His chosen career was being a Computer Programmer and retired from the I.R.S. Treasury Department after 30 years of government service.
He did a lot of traveling across our vast beautiful country. Sometimes, it was for work, but most often visiting relatives or vacationing. He never missed an opportunity to travel somewhere even if it was just for a Sunday afternoon drive.
He also loved baseball. He began playing on the Baptist church team at the age of 16 years old, then played on the Army team, followed by I.R.S. work team. Upon moving to Cincinnati, he became a “Cincinnati Reds, Big Red Machine” fan and never stopped.
He will be remembered for his great love of family and desire to support them as often as he could. He and his family lived in the Cincinnati, Ohio area for 39 years, before he and Peg moved to Roy, Utah to be closer to their children and grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his sister Linda Sue Randant, grandson Bradley Douglas Robbins and grandson in law Ryley Bresee.
Left to cherish his memory is his wife of 58 years, Peg, 5 children, Julie (David) Thompson of Kimberly, Idaho; Diana (Cyrus) Gardner of Taylorsville, Utah; Doug (Traci) Robbins of Syracuse, Utah; Debbie (Tige) Clayton of Meridian, Idaho; Terry Robbins of Roy, Utah; 17 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, (with 2 on the way) and a host of other family members and friends.
Don and his family would like to extend their sincere thanks to the caregivers at the Beehive Home of Syracuse and Hospice who gave wonderful care to Don. Your compassion and kindness have made all the difference.
Don’s family will have a private service to celebrate his life. Services entrusted to Lindquist’s Syracuse Mortuary, 869 South 2000 West.
