Stephen Douglas Robinson, age 53, returned home to his Heavenly Father August 2, 2000.
Born February 18, 1947 in Salt Lake City, UT, son of LeRoy Calvin and Thelma Pastore Robinson. Married Pearl John-son November 9, 1973 in the Salt Lake Temple. He lived in Utah his entire life where he dealt with many hardships and experienced various health problems. These trials limited him in many ways, but he was always a courageous fighter and never complained. He never stopped smiling and never let it get the best of him. Steve centered his life around the LDS Church and was always a faithful member. He served a mission to the Great Lakes Mission. Steve and Pearl raised a strong family who he loved and served with all his heart. He had a deep love for music and was a devout member of his ward choir. He made an occupation of serving the ward and stake as a custodian for many years. He loved his job and those he worked with. We always found it ironic that he was so meticulous about the church windows but could never quite get a perfect shave. He adored his wife, children, all of his extended family and his friends. He would do anything for them if it was possible. He was willing to serve everyone around him by his great love, unique sense of humor, his sarcastic jokes, taking out garbage cans, his ability to listen and give loving advice, and any job he could do for the church.
His life here on earth has influenced everyone that knows him and taught us all humility and how to endure to the end. This special spirit will always be loved, missed and remembered by all.
Survived by wife, Pearl; children, Stephen Chad (Aubrey) Robinson, Kearns; Carrie Lynn (Rick) Stroud, Taylorsville; Dennis Lee, Alison K., Penny M. and Jeannine T., all of West Jordan; brothers, Richard (Susan) Robinson, Robert Robinson, Salt Lake City; sisters, Lynn (Gary) Tapp, Salt Lake City; Trudy (Mike) Lowery, Park City. Preceded in death by parents.
