McKINNEY — Kenneth Ray Robbins passed away suddenly on the morning of May 25, 2018 at a young age of 52. He was born to Johnny Ray Robbins and Fairy Mae Jones Robbins May 16, 1966 in McKinney. He married the love of his life Lisa Goforth May 23, 1987. They made their home on the Robbins family farm just outside McKinney.


Kenneth is survived by his wife, Lisa; daughter, Courtney and husband, John Armstrong; sons, Chad and Brent Robbins; grandchildren, Julie, Elizabeth and Ian Armstrong, Madision and Katie Robbins, and Winter George; brothers, Johnny L. and wife, Penny Robbins of McKinney, and James and wife, Brenda Gibson of Texas City. Kenneth was preceded in death by his father and mother; sister, Norma Jean; and brother, Jimmy Gibson.


Kenneth was a hard worker and providing for his family was very important to him. He spent most of his life as a diesel mechanic. He loved his horses and his special dog companions, but most of all he loved his family. Spending time with his grandkids always brought a smile to his face. Kenneth was especially proud of his youngest son Brent who choose to follow his daddy’s footsteps to also be a diesel mechanic. Kenneth was close to his big brother Johnny and often called on him for advice.


We will all miss him very much and a huge void is in our hearts, but we also know it’s not goodbye but see you later. He is in the presence of our Lord and home with Dad and Mom.


A graveside service was held at 10:30 a.m. Friday, June 1 at Ridgeview Memorial Park in Allen. The family received friends from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, May 31 at the funeral home.
