Russell Robbins, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, peacefully passed away on October 27, 2023, in Ontario, CA. He was born on July 24, 1952, in Baltimore, MD. Russell led a remarkable life filled with love, adventure, and cherished memories.

The service will begin at 12:00 PM and conclude at 1:00 PM. Family and friends are invited to come together during this time of remembrance.

Throughout his life, Russell had a passion for exploration and cherished his travel experiences. From bustling cities to serene beaches, he loved discovering new places and immersing himself in different cultures. Cruises held a special place in his heart as he enjoyed the unique blending of adventure and relaxation they provided.

Russell leaves behind his devoted wife Sharon who stood by his side through thick and thin. Together they created a loving home filled with warmth and unconditional love. Their bond served as an inspiration to all who were fortunate enough to witness their love story unfold.

In addition to his wife Sharon, Russell is survived by his children Paul, Tracy, Michelle, and Russell Jr. He was not only a father but also a mentor and role model to them all. His wisdom and guidance will continue to guide them throughout their lives. Russell was also blessed with fifteen grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Their love brought immense joy into his world.

Russell's charisma and zest for life endeared him to everyone he met. With a warm smile and kind heart, he effortlessly formed lasting friendships that spanned decades. His presence brightened the lives of those around him, leaving an indelible mark on their hearts.

Beyond his passion for travel, Russell enjoyed various hobbies and interests. He often spent time pursuing these activities with his family, creating cherished memories that will be treasured forever. His spirit of adventure and love for life continues to inspire all who knew him.

Although Russell's departure has left a void in our hearts, we find solace in the beautiful memories he has given us. As we remember Russell's life, let us celebrate the impact he had on each of us and cherish the precious moments shared with him. Today, we bid farewell to an extraordinary man who made a lasting impression on all whose lives he touched.

The Robbins family would like to extend their deepest gratitude for the outpouring of love and support during this difficult time. Your kindness and compassion have provided comfort in their time of grief.

May our dear Russell rest peacefully, forever remembered for his love, kindness, and adventurous spirit.
