Casey Robbins


Casey Lee Robbins, 30, of Marion, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, doing something he loved to do, making and creating art. A graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 4, at Cedar Memorial Park Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will be held from 2 to 9 p.m. Saturday, April 7, at the Longbranch Hotel, 90 Twixt Town Rd, NE, Cedar Rapids. Please bring a memory to share. Casey may be gone, but our memories with him will remain in our hearts.
A devoted son, brother and daddy, Casey was born on May 22, 1987, in Lexington, Ky., to Marty and Donna (Crow) Robbins. Casey was kind-hearted, always putting others first. He was a hard worker with a witty sense of humor and appreciated the "little things in life." He was a tinkerer, an artist and a joker. He was full of love, especially for his children, and he will be missed.
Left to cherish Casey's memories are his parents, Marty and Donna (Crow) Robbins of Marion; his sister, Krista (Robbins) Rettkowski of Marion; two brothers, Derek Robbins of Marion and Nathan (LaShae) Robbins of Cedar Rapids; daughter, Johanna "JoJo" Robbins; and son, Brighton Robbins; Lindsay Robbins; two grandmothers, Janice Schoon of Marion and Arlene Crow of Hiawatha; seven uncles, Charles "Chuck" Robbins of Cedar Rapids, Jeff (Chris) Robbins of Texas, Randy (Kristy) Schoon of Toddville, Rodney Schoon of Cedar Rapids, Rob (Tamara) Schoon of Texas, Sonny (Marcia) Crow of Marion and Gary Crow of California; three nephews and one niece, Devon and Dakota Rettkowski and Macksen and Emersyn Robbins; many cousins; and all his "brothers from other mothers" and friends.
He was preceded in death by his baby brother, Joshua Robbins; his grandfathers; and aunt, Helen (Crow) Norris.
