Richard Lee Robinson

Richard Lee Robinson, 63, of Carson passed peacefully and surrounded by his family on August 16, 2015 after losing his brave battle against cancer. Through it all Richard showed great determination and courage which made everyone who knew him very proud.

Richard was born in Salem, Oregon to his loving parents Jim and Elsie Robinson. He graduated from Goldendale High School and relocated to White Salmon and then later settled in at Carson, Washington where he met and fell in love with his devoted wife, Linda. He worked as an engineer with Skamania County for 30 years. Following his retirement, he began working as an engineer with Bell Design Company of Bingen, who became like a second family.

Richard was first and foremost a dedicated family-man who constantly bragged about his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He loved taking his wife to spend long relaxing weekends at her favorite place, the ocean. He was a lifelong avid outdoorsman who enjoyed anything that took him to the forest. He spent countless days hunting for deer and elk as well as mushrooms. He was even happy just taking long drives through the woods that he knew so well. He was also a passionate fan of the Seahawks and Trail Blazers. Richard was a dedicated long-time member of the National Rifle Association, North American Hunting Club, Mt. Adams Elks Lodge, and Stevenson Eagles.

Richard is survived by his adoring wife of 23 years, Linda; his loving mother Elsie Robinson of White Salmon; sister Nancy and her husband Ron Jensen of Carson; daughter Keri Pino of Mt. Vernon; daughter Tonya and her husband John Beattie of Belfair; son Alex Robinson of Tacoma; sister-in-law Teresa Mills of Stevenson; uncle Loren Robinson and his wife Marilyn of Sacramento; and mother-in-law Clarissa Pentecost of Goldendale. Richard was a wonderful grandfather to 14 grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. All will miss him greatly.

Richard is preceded in death by his dear father James Robinson and his beloved brother Donald Robinson.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Cards and letters can be mailed to PO Box 445, Carson, WA 98610.
