Mr. Robinson retired in 1999 from the Eureka Co., where he was employed for 32 years.

He was born March 14, 1939, in Alsey. His parents were John W. and Frances E. Collard Robinson. He married Loretta Yentes at the Armington Christian Church on June 30, 1963.

He was a fan of all airplanes, especially World War II planes. He earned his private pilot's license and owned a small private plane for a few years. Later, he flew radio-controlled airplanes.

The highlight of his life was a trip to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs a few years ago to witness the graduation of the son of good friends.

Dave was a social person and never met a stranger.
