Brent Dee Robison

Brent Dee Robison, 59, father, son, brother & friend has lifted off on his final flight. He passed away peacefully at home in St. George, Utah on Dec 13, 2019 and now returns to his Heavenly Father and his loved ones who have gone on before.

Brent was born in Vernal Ut, the 2nd son to Vern F Robison & June Stevens Robison, on August 23, 1960. Brent grew up with one older brother, Curt, a younger sister, Debbie, & a younger brother, Rick.

Brent loved to hunt and fish with his Dad and brothers as a young man, as well as enjoying many other happy adventures, trips and activities with his family and friends! While growing up in the Panguitch he enjoyed participating in activities including high school basketball & other school activities.

Brent graduated from Panguitch High School in 1978. He attended Dixie State College where he met Yvette Austin from Summit UT. They were married in 1981 and became the parents of a precious daughter Jolene Maria Robison, who became the light of his life! Brent was always proud that his little girl held the title of being the very first grandchild for his parents!

Brent moved his family to and managed the Bryce Canyon Airport for a time. Brent and Yvette divorced, and an employment opportunity took him to California.

In the mid 1980’s he met Elle Bielat and her two young sons Joshua and Lucas. They were married & lived in the Yucca Valley California areas of Twenty Nine Palms & Wonder Valley.

While living there, Brent was employed with Don Landers Construction, building homes, shopping centers, an industrial park & also projects on the Twenty Nine Palms Marine Base. Brent made many good friends everywhere he lived. It was also in CA in 1986, that Brent & Elle lost one son, Lucas. They divorced in the mid to late 1990’s.

Brent made his way back to St George Utah where he has lived for over 23 years. He started his employment with Checker Auto Parts and worked for Cindy Taylor Trucking as a Heavy Loader Operator.

Brent also held various positions at O’Reilly Auto Parts Stores in St George, such as Installer Service Specialist, Assistant Store Manager and Commercial Sales Manager where he was respected & appreciated by many customers and coworkers alike.

Although during his last 4 or 5 years Brent faced many health issues he continued working, except when his doctors ordered him off to recover and heal enough.

Over the weeks or months when Brent was required to spend time with doctors & nurses etc., it was easy to see that Brent had become good friends with many of those who cared for him! Some were considered much like family to Brent!

Brent’s lifelong love of Airplanes & flying developed into a great love for flying Radio Control model airplanes. Brent participated in races with local & national organizations. Brent and 3 associates are the founders of “SUPRA”, a Radio Control Pylon racing organization in southern Utah.

He raced his planes and won two of the three prize categories in the RC Pro National Races in the St George and Cedar City area a few years back.

Brent was a gentle giant and had a heart of gold. He enjoyed kids and his precious animal friends. He loved spending time with his nieces and nephews. At family gatherings Brent was often found somewhere with a group of little people out finding adventure.

Brent had dear neighbors, close friends and kind church members who offered richness to his daily life that is unmatched! He felt so happy to have been called “Grandpa Brent” by Cindy’s little grandkids.

He and his sister, Debbie, who lives in Oregon, had a very close connection. She always tried to be there at his side through his many surgeries, illnesses or whatever else he needed her for. Theirs was a unique sister-brother relationship.

Brent is survived by his daughter, Jolene Robison of Richmond, UT, Parents, Vern and Pam Robison of Panguitch UT, June Robison, Keizer, OR, Siblings, Curtis J. Robison of Las Vegas, NV, Debra Ann Muhlestein (Russell), of Keizer Oregon, Ricky Lee Robison of Salt Lake City, UT

    My dearest friend I am saddened with your passing. I have tried to honor your wishes to the best of my ability. To your family I hope you can find comfort in knowing that Brent isn’t suffering anymore. Till we meet again my brother I love you and fly fast and turn left.

  4. Brent was such a caring person. We considered Brent a part of our family. To my son, Brent will always be “Uncle” Brent. Your friendship meant so much to us and we will always cherish our time spent knowing you.

  5. The last time I remember seeing Brent and Debbie and June was in Panguitch in the 70’s. I was a boy but I remember Brent as a fit and handsome young man and was very polite to me and my sister. Farewell, cousin.

  6. Very sorry to read the news of Brent’s passing. I did not know him personally but I was privileged to serve an LDS Mission with his brother, Rick, in the Texas San Antonio Mission. Rick and I opened an area called Portland, Texas across the bay from Corpus Christi. We both rode bikes as we served together and he was a great companion sharing A LOT of great memories growing up in Panguitch. I remember he loved to hunt and I’m certain he made many great memories when hanging out with his brother, Brent. Rick, my prayers of comfort for you and your family during a very difficult time to say goodbye to a brother and best friend. I sincerely hope all is well with you. THANK YOU for many wonderful mission memories. -Bob Richards-

  8. Debbie and family, It was my great honor and joy to care for Brent while he went through multiple health issues in his home. He loved talking about his daughter and family… and he always appreciated all your care and concerns over the many months he attempted to get better. He was a wonderful person! May he Rest In Peace.

  9. We are so sorry for the loss of Brent , He was truly a Great person and we will miss him. We love you Brent and you will always be in our Hearts.

  10. Michael Hughes. Before I met Brent, I was June’s neighbor. As nice as June was, it became easy to understand how this big man had become so calm and loving in his maturity. He was a wonderful neighbor, looking out for your children and your pets when you were otherwise not around. I visited with Brent often and we shared a love for RC aircraft though I was a novice and Brent so obviously an expert. Brent was a gentle man. he was reserved in his manner though from the size of his motorcycle you knew there was an adventurous soul inside. I came to regard Brent not only as a great friend but even mores as someone you could rely on. Sometimes we would talk for a while and share our successes and failures. In all this time neither Brent nor I gossiped. We spoke as friends. He also loved to show me new growth of a flower, tree or vine, things I would be unaware of but for Brent. The world is a poorer place and heaven a greater one in Brent’s passing. Memories of you will live on.

  11. I love you Brent rest easy my dear friend thank you for all the memories and time here with you til we meet again. So for your lose Debbie and your family amazing friend and all around guy
