Brent W. Robinson, 62 passed away June 29, 2012, in Wenatchee at Central Washington Hospital. He was born in Tonasket April 6, 1950, to Neil and Grace Robinson.
He was a great man who will be missed by the many who loved him. He was selfless, always putting others first. Nothing in life was more important to him than his family who were the center of his universe.
During his lifetime he managed to fulfill most of his bucket list — fathering the children he was so proud of, the joys of having grandchildren, riding horses in the beautiful hills of the Okanogan, owning and operating aircraft and becoming a pilot for Kenmore Air for several years. He had a special affinity with and love for animals.
He was well regarded for his expertise and craftsmanship in the many areas of construction and for never settling for less than perfection. He always had your back and you could count on him for his unwavering integrity, honesty, kindness, sense of humor, laughter and a smile. A truly special spirit who we will hold in our hearts forever and will be missed by all who loved him. He is now on the next leg of his journey, reminding all of us to ‘cowboy up’ and that we will all be together someday.
Brent is survived by his wife of 38 years, Laurie; son Willie (Disa); daughter Marah Norris (Justin) and the newest joys of his life, two granddaughters: Jaycee Grace and Brylee Hope; sisters: Rosemary Stevens (Tom), Angie Clay (Bob), Caroline Ferderer; and numerous nephews and nieces.
Brent was preceded in death by his parents.
A celebration of life potluck will be held at the Community Cultural Center in Tonasket on July 8, 2012 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
