July 20, 1962 ~ August 8, 2019
On Thursday, August 8, 2019, Delbert Harold Robbins III, a loving husband, father, grandfather and son passed at the age of 57 years.
Delbert passed after a 5-year battle with cancer. He fought extremely hard and surpassed doctor expectations. He loved caring for his grandson Jordan, wrestling with his son Connor, watching Darian succeed, and life with his wife Kim. Delbert and Kim were married on August 26, 1989. He worked for 30 years in the HVAC industry as an ice machine mechanic.
Delbert loved the ocean. Some of his family’s favorite memories with him are going to Myrtle Beach and spending time in the ocean. He loved WWF wrestling, prime rib, Hi-boy shakes, and taking the family to the Twin Drive-In. He was a big Ted Nugent fan, binge watcher of The Walking Dead, and loved the movie Tombstone. He loved to hunt and fish. He proudly proclaimed that he has caught 17 catfish in two hours. He had a knack for finding the things that others thought were eternally lost.
He is survived by his wife, Kimberli; daughter, Darian, 23; son, Connor, 16; grandson, Jordan, 4; mother, Joanne Dutton of Raytown, Mo.; brother, Alex Tarrant of Raytown, Mo.; three nieces; and lots of extended family and dear friends.
A memorial service will be held at Orrick United Methodist Church on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at 11:30 a.m. A dinner following the service will be provided by the ladies of the church. Flowers may be sent to Orrick United Methodist Church. Donations can be made to the University of Kansas Cancer Center or the church.
