Richard Hickox Robbins, 74, passed away Wednesday, June 21, 2017.
Born December 26, 1942 in Geneva, OH, the son of Richard and Virginia (Fellows) Robbins, it was no surprise that many referred to him as Santa Claus.
On July 14, 1962, Dick married his wife Irene (Pasanen) Robbins, and together they created a family that he adored. He was a warm-hearted man, as well as a complete jokester who loved to make people laugh.
He enjoyed watching Nascar, drinking a beer or two, and riding his motorcycle before being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1995.
Dick leaves behind his beloved wife, Irene Robbins; daughter, Lisa (Harry Meadors III) Robbins; son, David (Amy Huggins) Robbins; six grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents and son, Ricky Robbins.
Visitation will be held on Monday, June 26, 2017 from 5 - 7 PM at DUCRO FUNERAL SERVICES AND CREMATORY, 4524 Elm Ave., Ashtabula, OH.
