Submitted by: Ann Weber

Wayne LeRoy (Bud) Robinson was born December 10, 1923, just west of Canton in Dewey county to Ben and Mabel (Curtis) Robinson. Bud lived an exciting 92 years and passed on to his heavenly home May 1, 2016. Bud, as he was affectionately called, attended all 12 years of school at Royal Con 6 and graduated in 1941. He loved his alma mater and attended every school reunion. He always had a story to tell about his happy and mischievous school days.

In 1943, Bud entered the U.S. Army and was honorably discharged in 1946. He served with the Amphibious Engineers and was a member of the Assault Team that landed on Utah Beach during the invasion of Normandy on D-Day. He participated in numerous battles throughout the European Theater with medals earned. He was a very proud American and loved his country with all his heart and soul. Prior to his time in the Army, Bud worked with the Corp of Engineers on the survey team building the Canton Dam.

Bud married Nellie Darlene (Tyree) Robinson on March 1, 1947, in Bethany, Oklahoma, at the Nazarene College Parsonage. Following their marriage, they lived on the Robinson family farm, 9 miles west and ½ mile south of Canton until 1964, when they built a home one mile west of Canton. Of this union three children were born, Tommy Wayne, Deborah Joyce, and Pamela Jean. Bud and Darlene spent 69 wonderful years together as partners with their Christian devotion growing each year. Bud made a lasting impact on his children that will remain with them forever.

Bud’s faith was a huge part of his life. He gave his life to Christ and was baptized in the Canton Christian Church. He served as a Sunday School teacher, deacon, and elder of the Church for many years. He loved gospel music and he and Darlene sang in a mixed quartet for many years. Later he sang with the men’s quartet singing bass. Over these years they all sang at hundreds of funerals. He touched many lives and led many people to love the Lord and give their life to Christ. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge for about 53 years and also serving as Grand Master. He received his 32nd degree Mason at Guthrie, Oklahoma. He was a great mentor to many young men, helping them with their Mason work. He also served on the Canton School Board for 10 years and supported and took pride in supporting the community, administration, faculty, and was a great example to all the students at CHS. In his later years he assisted many students with their history projects for WWII. Bud was a man who loved the land and worked all his life on the farm raising wheat and cattle. He enjoyed watching the wheat coming up and the bountiful harvest. The tractor and combine were his pride and joy and was still operating these at times in his 80's. One time Darlene said, “I’m concerned about you being on that tractor” and he replied, “If I died on this tractor I’ll be doing what I love”.

Bud and Darlene loved their children and grandchildren with all their hearts. They were huge supporters and watched them play football and basketball. They loved watching Kelsi and Kenzi play college basketball and are huge supporters of SWOSU (Southwestern Oklahoma State University) Women’s basketball team where Kelsi is currently the coach and spent most of their anniversaries in the last several years at their college play-offs. Bud leaves behind the love of his life, Darlene. He also leaves an everlasting legacy in his three children, Tom Robinson and his wife Karen, Debbie Robinson, and Pam and her husband Steve Bond, all of Canton; seven grandchildren, Kelsi and her husband Josh Musick of Weatherford, Oklahoma, Sarah and her husband James Jones of Canton, Oklahoma, Kenzi and her husband Trevor Meier of Mustang, Oklahoma, Wes Robinson of Moore, Oklahoma, Bode and his wife Joni Bond of Canton, Rachel and her husband Braydin Farrow of Mooreland, Oklahoma, Will Robinson of Moore, Oklahoma; great grandchildren Keenan, Amaria, Maddox and Titus Musick, Harper, Karter, Keller, Ryler, and Grayler Jones, Tinley and Kellan Meier and another great grand-daughter due in July, and many other family members and friends. Bud was preceded in death by his parents, Ben and Mabel Robinson and sister, Jean Mullins Hooten.
