Beloved husband, father, and grandfather, Eric Lee Robison, age 75, passed away peacefully at his home in Evanston, Wyoming with his wife and dogs by his side on Thursday, February 29, 2024.

Eric was born to Lee and Ann (Burgess) Robison on October 10, 1948, in Logan, Utah. Eric grew up moving throughout the western United States. He graduated from North Central High School in Spokane, Washington, and attended Ricks College in Rexburg Idaho.

Eric loved his country. In his youth, he earned his Eagle Rank in the Boy Scouts of America. He went on to serve two tours in the Vietnam War in the 1st Marine Airwing.

Getting home from the war on June 15th, Eric married Lonna Jean Williams on June 18, 1970, in the Idaho Falls Temple and they were blessed with 9 wonderful children: Erica, Shelley, Sharon, Anitra, Nathan, Carina, Ryan, Alisha, and Jessica. They later divorced.

Eric married Judy Larsen in the Salt Lake Temple and they were happily married for 28 years.

Eric was a long-haul Truck Driver for Gabor Trucking Company for many years. He later worked for Amoco and retired from British Petroleum (BP) in 2011.

Eric served in many church callings for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, from a Nursery Leader to Branch President. He loved to serve others and lived a life of service. He served the people of Uinta County Jail for the last 17 years of his life and changed many lives doing so.

He was a member of the Temple Riders (Motorcycle) Association (TRA) with his wife, Judy. Together, they rode to all 48 contiguous United States plus Alaska! With the TRA, they also participated in a Church History ride, Boston ride, Anchorage Alaska ride, and went to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in 2015.

Eric ran the Utah RAGNAR race with some of his children and grandchildren in 2014.

He will be dearly and deeply missed by so many friends and family.
