Obituary: Kevin Robbins

ST. CHARLES — Kevin Robbins, 42, of St. Charles, a graduate of Paxton-Buckley-Loda High School, died Saturday, Nov. 12, 2022, at University of Illinois Chicago Hospital surrounded by his family.

Visitation will be from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at Moss-Norris Funeral Home, 100 S. Third St., St. Charles. Family and friends are encouraged to wear sports attire (excluding Sox). A funeral service will follow the visitation at 5 p.m. with the Rev. Ronald Kalas officiating.

Mr. Robbins was born April 2, 1980, in Urbana, the son of Charles and Melissa (Nuss) Robbins. He was united in marriage to Teresa Dahl on July 16, 2005, in Bloomingdale.

Mr. Robbins was raised in Paxton and graduated from Paxton-Buckley-Loda High School in 1998. While in high school, he excelled as an athlete in football, basketball and baseball. He continued his education at Illinois State University, where he obtained a degree in education.

Mr. Robbins taught high school in Riverton and coached basketball. Always on to a new adventure, he and his new wife moved to Redlands, Calif., where he continued to teach at Hemett High School. While in California, he also coached basketball at the University of Redlands. In 2009, they moved back to Illinois and have been residents of St. Charles since. Mr. Robbins was employed by Sunbelt Rentals in Aurora for the past 13 years.

Mr. Robbins had a great personality that made him easy to love. Friends and family always seemed to congregate around him. He loved spending time with friends attending University of Illinois sports, watching sports or playing a round of golf. He would never hide from work; he was a responsible man who loved to work hard and always took his career and his family man responsibilities to heart. He loved all of Gods creations, especially his dogs — the late Gus and the late Doris and currently Otis — as well as his late cats Jake and Elwood. He loved to stay busy and active, but no time was more precious then the time he spent with his wife and three children.

Surviving are his wife; three children, Ben, Ella and Sammie; his mother, Melissa Robbins; his father, Charles Robbins; a sister, Kim (Tom) Geiger; his mother- and father-in-law, Dwight and Patti Dahl; his sisters-in-law, Rachael (Mark) Vana and Natalie (Alan) Muenster; his nieces and nephews, Maggie and Olivia Geiger, Royce and Lennox Vana, and Mila and Ava Muenster; and his aunts and uncles, Mitch (Beth) Nuss, Matt (Sherri) Nuss, Marty (Roxann) Nuss, Lynn (Bill) Ingold and Pam (Mark) Lewis.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Elzie and Naomi Nuss; and his paternal grandparents, Scotty and Ann Robbins.

Memorial contributions may be directed to the family for an education fund to be established for his children.
