Burial followed in New Union Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery. Bro. Darrin Webb officiated at the service. Visitation was held from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. on Wednesday, July 29, and from 10 a.m. until the time of the services on Thursday, July 30 at New Union Missionary Baptist Church.
He was a member of the New Union Community his whole life, and a member of New Union Missionary Baptist Church. He was a longtime employee of Reagan Power and Compression. He was the one you called when something broke, you needed help or you just needed a friend to talk to. If you had a problem, he could fix it. He had the best laugh, hugs, advice and sense of humor. He never met a stranger, and to know him was to love him. He loved his family, friends, and all the extra kids and grandkids he had a part in helping raise. He was looking forward to retirement and raising his calves. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Reece Elbert and Lucille Robbins, and two brothers, Reece Ray Robbins and John Edd Robbins.
Survivors include his wife of 40 years, Rachel Robbins of Bassfield; son, Tommy Robbins (Kayla) of Bassfield; daughter, Sabrina Nichols (Jason) of Columbia; brothers, Ricky Robbins (Lynn) and Charles Robbins (Michelle), both of Columbia; sisters, Nita Bazor (Chuck) of Poplarville and Naomi Windham of Bassfield; grandchildren, Gavin Fairburn, Cheyenne Fairburn, Christin Nichols, Emalee Nichols and Jaylin Nichols; brothers-in-law, Victor Haddox (Darlene) and Jeff Davis (JoLynn), both of Columbia, and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
Pallbearers were Delbert Wood, Ray Windham, Mike Windham, Bobby Holmes, Larry Peavy and Alex Brumfield.
