Ricky Alton Robbins Sr., 71, of Prescott, Arkansas entered into everlasting peace on July 10, 2021 at home surrounded by his children and family. He was born October 7, 1949 in Hot Springs, AR to Rev. Connie and Mary (Braughton) Robbins.
Ricky was raised in a loving Methodist home and proudly kept his faith throughout his life and was glad to spread Gods word to all he could along the way. He was a member of Fairview Methodist Church in Prescott. He was a wonderful, devoted family man and loving father to his four children, who no doubt made his life interesting, and helped him age a little more quickly. He was a no fuss simple man who loved to be outdoors, working on his property, and helping others with theirs as well. He was a “jack of all trades” and could do just about anything, from his work as a truck driver, cabinet builder at Klipsch, builder of wooden furniture; he retired from maintenance at OBU in 2009. He was a proud member and firefighter for the Fair Hills Volunteer Fire Dept. for 18 years and served in the United States Army with the 101st Airborne Division during the Vietnam War.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brother Ausy Dale Robbins and sisters LaVern Robbins and Janice Deisen.
Survivors include his brother Jerry Robbins (Ricci), sister Sandra Williams all of Benton; children Ricky Robbins Jr. of Texarkana, Buffie Bell (Michael) of Hot Springs, Brandy Neal of Hot Springs, and Joshua Robbins(Casey) of Prescott; Grandchildren: Wesley, Sydney, Lauren, Chloe, Piper, Zakary, Breanna, Harley, Jaxon, and Dylan; Great Grandchildren: Carter, Jordyn, Julian and Mason; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
A memorial service will be held in Hot Springs, AR at a later date.
A special thanks to Dr. Danielle Tippit with Central Arkansas Veterans Services.
