Obituary

Robie B Robbins Jr. worked his last day January 10, 2020. He was born to Robie and Frances (Kenney) Robbins on October 9, 1924 in Appleton, Maine. The fourth of six children grew up on a farm in Appleton. His work ethic was rooted early in his life. “As soon as you could pull a weed you worked in the gardens”, he often said. He attended school in Appleton dropping out before he graduated to run the farm. He would go back and earn his diploma from Camden Regional High school in the 1970’s.

Robie enlisted in the Army during World War II. He was a sharp shooter fighting in the Asian Theatre. He was always proud to say that he was in Luzon Bay Philippines the day the peace treaty was signed that ended World War II. After the war ended he transferred to the Army Air Corp where he trained as a mechanic.

Robie held many jobs rich life. He had his own garage in Union in the 1950’s, he worked at Union Creamery, FMC as a boiler operator, Sea Pro, Steel Pro, and Butler Maxcy and Heath to list a few. He “retired” at 92 from plumbing and heating. He always felt that retiring was his “biggest mistake” as he had been healthy until then. He lived within 5 miles of his birthplace his entire life. He met and married Christine Dorr in 1952 while working on a road project on Bailey Island, Maine.

Robie was a member of the Eastern Star, Shriners, Scottish Rite, and the Masons. Robie was an amazing role model to his family and his community. A humble man, there would be few people in the town of Union who had not been a recipient of Robie’s kindness and generosity. He had a thirst for knowledge, an adventurous spirit, and a heart of gold. He will leave his family with wonderful memories and his examples of an exemplary life.

He is survived by his daughter Tessie Kilgour and husband Jim; Grandchildren Peter Emerson, Amanda Emerson, Alexandra Todd; Great Grandchildren Elaina, Mackenzie, Grady, and Brandon Emerson; Brother Neil Robbins as well as many nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his wife Christine Robbins; Sisters Louise Copeland and Delia Starrett; Brothers Loren and Aldeverde Robbins.

A special thanks to Meredith, Sue, Alicia, Peggy, Kevin, Ken, Tom, and Karen. This group of people enriched and brought joy to Robie in the last year of his life. Thanks to all the great neighbors and friends who stopped in to brighten Robie’s day. You are all a testament to his good life. Also thank you to Susan and George Rogers for giving Robie’s “primary caregiver” Maxi the cat a loving home.

A time of visitation will be held on Thursday, January 16, 2020 from 5 to 7 in the evening at Hall Funeral Home, 949 Main Street, Waldoboro. A Masonic service will be held at 6:30 pm. A celebration of life will be held on Friday, January 17, 2020 at 2 pm in the afternoon at the Peoples United Methodist Church, 31 Depot St., Union, ME.
