Craig Richard 'Rick' Robbins, 58, died Friday, Sept. 30, 2016, at his home in Glasgow, Mont. surrounded by friends and family. He had been diagnosed with lung cancer Oct. 9, 2014.

A memorial service will be held Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 2 p.m. with Pastor Lonnie Eidson officiating, followed by a reception at the First Baptist Church in Glasgow. A private burial will take place at a later date.

He was born Oct. 8, 1957, to Mavis (Keough) and Arnold Robbins of Nashua. He attended Nashua School and completed high school in Glasgow.

In 1976, he married the love of his life, Carol Marks. He enjoyed yard work, woodworking, remodeling homes, playing cards and shooting pool with his best friends, Don Anderson, Dan Belleau and the mighty Thor (Keithe Thorson) and his family and many friends.

The greatest things in his life were his daughter, son-in-law and his granddaughters. His special connection with his granddaughters was what he called his gift of life.

He began his work career working with his father installing floor coverings. During the summers, he worked with Bill Riley doing general maintenance in the Glasgow school system. He later worked for Joe Weber at Buttrey Food Store, where he gained high regards for Joe and they became great friends.

Buttrey Foods sent Rick through management school and promoted him to assistant manager of the Glasgow store. He then went to Blue Rock Beverage as a driver and subsequent manager. He was hired by Holiday Station Store as a manager, where he found his calling. He enjoyed the people, both customers and workers at Holiday.

He was always available to help people in need. Rick loved the Lord, and he used his many skills to help with home problems, and he helped his coworkers. His work ethic was unparalleled. He worked after being diagnosed with cancer until shortly before his death.

He was preceded in death by his father, Arnold Robbins.

Survivors include Carol, his wife of 40 years; one daughter, Nicole Mix; one son-in-law, David Mix; three granddaughters, Jordan Mix, Ziva Mix and Jordan Rennick; his mother, Mavis Robins; two brothers, Buck Robbins and his wife, Debi, and Merritt Robbins and his wife, Jamie; three sisters, Mickie Luse and her husband, Craig, Victoria Young and her husband, John, and Linda Bragg and her husband, Ron; a mother-in-law, Christina Marks; four brothers-in-law, Ernest Marks, Patrick Marks, William Marks and Christopher Marks; and three sisters-in-law, Betsy Marks-Quaring, Connie Marks-Goodwin and Cheryl Marks-Bruce.
