Jason Ray Robbins was born on December 5,1973, to Roy Lee Robbins and Francis Ann (Moss) Robbins, in Pawnee, Oklahoma. He passed away on March 1, 2018.
Jason grew up on a farm outside Pawnee, Oklahoma. He attended Pawnee Public School and graduated from there in 1991. He attended Oklahoma State University, he lacked 2 hours in getting his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture / Agronomy. He once told a friend, he didn’t need to get up in front of anyone to work on the farm, so he never took the mandatory speech class required to graduate.
Jason grew up helping his father on the farm. He loved taking care of the animals. Every summer his family would go to South Dakota and help Jason’s uncle Wayne with wheat harvest. After he stopped going to college, he decided to join the part of the Robbins family that had migrated to South Dakota. He went to work with his uncle Wayne, cousin Roger, brother David, and their families.
Jason was a shy quiet man. He kept to himself most of the time. As the saying goes, children and animals know a person’s heart, and children and animals loved being around Jason and he loved them as well. His shyness would slip away as he played games with the children.
Jason is survived by his father and mother Roy Lee, and Francis Ann Robbins, of Pawnee, OK, brother David Robbins, of Hamill, SD, and several aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
