ATASCADERO — Ricky Alan Robbins, 51, died peacefully on Feb. 15, 2013, after a long, hard battle of leukemia, with his family by his side every step of the way.
Rick was born in Portland, Ore., where he met his wife Trinda of 30 years. They moved to California and raised four children, Kelly, Christopher, Kerry and Casey. He worked in the auto industry all of his life only to move up, break records, and be a rock star. Rick eventually went onto open his own successful dealership in Atascadero.
He was a natural born salesman. He loved to live life, travel and music. He loved his family and was a very proud “Papa” to Kamryn and Farah. He lost his youngest son, Casey, in a tragic car accident, which led him and his family to Las Vegas. He landed a dream job for Penske Wynn Ferrari at the Wynn Hotel and Casino. Selling Maserati’s and Ferrari’s like no one else and becoming friends with all of his clients.
Rick was a very charismatic person and full of life. He had a great smile that would stand out and one of the most positive attitudes anyone could ever have. It is an under statement to say Ricky Robbins will be greatly missed by his family and friends. The family will hold a private memorial and are requesting that any donations be made to the www.rickyrobbins.me website to help pay his outstanding medical bills. The family would like to thank everyone who supported his “Rev Up Recovery” fundraiser and thank the friends who gathered around his family with love and support.
God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around you
“come to me.”
