Michael Robbins, better known by close friends and family as “Ryan”, slipped into eternity at the young age of 27 on September 3, 2012, surrounded by loving family members in his Baytown home.
Ryan was born to Joan and Kirk Robbins and was brought home to meet his older brother, Jason, on May 17, 1985, in Houston, TX. Ryan’s family relocated to southeast Georgia in 1987, where he grew up with best friends (brothers from another mother) Steven and Matthew to attend Camden County High School in Kingsland, GA.
Ryan married his wife, April, on May 30, 2008, in a simple ceremony in her hometown of Folkston, GA, before heading off to Marine Corps boot camp. Totally devoting themselves to each other, they traveled and lived in Ohio for a year before their new found disliking of snow drove them south again. Ryan accepted a Millwright position at a local natural gas products plant, where he found his niche working on jet turbines and made some life-long friends in the process.
He had a real knack for craftsmanship and truly enjoyed working with his hands, whether it was on cars, homes, computers or golf carts. Ryan’s hands were always rough, as you’d expect a mechanic’s hands to be and he was definitely a handy one to have around when something was broken. He had a great love for drag racing, classic rock, vintage cars, and camping. Ryan accepted people as they were and wouldn’t hesitate to help a friend in need with complete selflessness.
Ryan is survived by his wife, Amanda April Robbins; mother, Joan; father, Kirk; step-mother, Angie; siblings, Jason and his wife Tambi, Scotty and Taylor Ann; niece, Kamdyn; nephews, Mason and Lincoln; in-laws, Michael and Sandra Goodwin and Gary and Denise Cooper as well as his grandparents, Walter and Nita Robbins.
A memorial service to celebrate Michael Ryan Robbins’ life will be held at 7:00pm, September 7, 2012, at Faith Assembly of God in Pasadena.
“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
