Robbin graduated from Centennial High School in 1966. He became a Journeyman Painter while still in High School.
Robbin was the Coordinator of the Portland Graffiti Project. He coordinated and mentored at risk youth. Robbin was passionate and dedicated to these young men and women. It was a joy for Him to see these men and women become productive members of society. In the years following the end of the project, as several of the young people had began to live successful lives, when they ran into Robbin, they would express much gratitude to Robbin for taking the time to work with them. Robbin always spoke of those days with them often and fondly!
In 1993, Robbin met Pastor Max Garza. From that meeting started a lifelong commitment and dedication from Robbin to Pastor Max, his family, and the Victory Outreach Church! One of the first ministries that Robbin dedicated himself to at Victory Outreach Church was the Victory Outreach Men's Home. This is where Robbin would commit a large part of his life. Robbin acted as teacher and counselor to the men up to shortly before His home going!
Within 5 years of attending the Church, he began helping Pastor Max in the running of the church. Robbin was given a very special gift from God of knowing how to get things done. He knew how, where and with whom to make things happen.
Robbin had a passion for people and always gave of himself & his resources because he loved People. No matter what time of the day or night, Robbin would answer his phone to make
himself available to whoever needed him. He believed in people and treated them with dignity. He never gave up on people. He gave his life for others.
Every Sunday and Wednesday, before and after church services, Robbin had his own meeting place in the cafe seating area. When new men visited our church, the Ushers/Usherettes knew to guide them to Robbin for introductions. There was always a number of men sitting with Robbin eating with him and being discipled by him. He enjoyed this time with the men very much!
In 2000 at the Victory Outreach Conference, Robbin met his future wife, Debra Franklin! That meeting was very embarrassing for Robbin and Debra because the person that introduced them was playing matchmaker! When Robbin would travel to Denver for family matters, he would also look to visit Debra! In March of 2003 Debra moved to Portland where 6 months later they were married! Robbin was a faithful and loving husband to Debra. The glue of their marriage was Christ and the opportunity to do ministry together!
Robbin had a passion for antique cars and furniture in which he collected quite a few.
