Francis passed away April 8, 2021 at his home in Sioux Falls surrounded by his family.
Francis was born in Aberdeen, SD to Francis Robinson, Sr. and Lorraine (Basset) Robinson on April 12, 1948. Francis grew up in Aberdeen and worked at a local lumber mill until he got a job working for Western Union. While working for Western Union, he met the love of his life, Sharon Vogt, in August of 1969. They fell in love and were married on January 3, 1970 and moved to Fargo, ND. Francis still worked for Western Union. He often travelled for work and sometimes Sharon would get to come along and they would have an adventure.
Francis was transferred to Bellevue, NE for work and they decided to bring new bundles of joy into the world, Tia and Arien. Once again, Francis was transferred and this time to Bismarck, ND. They lived in Bismarck until 1983 and Francis was transferred to Sioux Falls. He continued his work with Western Union until the hub closed. He then went to work for the Good Samaritan Society and later held various sales jobs until he retired.
Grateful for having shared in his life is his wife, Sharon; two children, Tia Robinson and Arien (Brittany) Robinson, both of Sioux Falls; grandchildren, Harley Robinson, Caleb Robinson, Kaitlyn Hallem, Paige Robinson, Michael Holmes and Leland Robinson; and many friends and extended family.
He is preceded in death by his parents and grandparents.
