Obituary for Arthur Erwin Robinson

Arthur Robinson, 90, of Black Eagle passed away peacefully of cancer at his residence on April 21, 2019.

Art was born on April 12, 1929, in Great Falls, and lived his whole life in Black Eagle. In 1960 he built the family home and was the oldest lifelong resident of Black Eagle.

As a teenager he enjoyed boxing and was awarded “Feather Weight Champion” in 1943. Art was drafted and served in the Korean War from 1951 until 1953. He was a lifetime member of the Black Eagle VFW Post #4669. After returning home he met and married Lorraine Koski, the love of his life. They were married for 64 years and had three children together.

Art was a plasterer and then started taping in the 60s. He worked on many buildings and homes in the Great Falls area and was always there to lend a helping hand and offer advice. His passions were fishing, hunting, camping, gardening, and just being in the great outdoors. He was also an idea man, able to fix or invent just about anything. His favorite saying was, “There’s always something to do if you want to do it.” He will be missed by many and was dearly loved by his family. Art would want everyone to remember the good times.

Art was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Lenora Robinson; his brothers, Robert and Ray Robinson; and his sisters, Hazel Robinson and Myrl (Norman) Parkins.

He is survived by his wife, Lorraine; his sons, Rudell (Adele) Robinson of Great Falls, Bryan (Melanie) Robinson of Great Falls; daughter Karlene (Rick) Johnson of Black Eagle; and five grandchildren, Mike (Jessie) Robinson of Great Falls, Nick (Sheyanne) Robinson of Great Falls, Jessica (Bret) Burton of Vancouver, WA, Emilee (Justin King) Robinson of Portland, OR, and Alex Robinson of Missoula, MT; two step-grandchildren, Holly (Mike Haman) Long of Shoreline, WA, and Derek (Trisha Swanson) Long of Seattle, WA; and eight great grandchildren.

Special thanks to Medallion Hospice, Sherrie, Joe, and Erin for their TLC. At Art’s request, cremation will take place with no services. Burial will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Salvation Army or a charity of your choice.
Condolences can be shared with the family at www.OConnorFuneralHome.com.
