Jeffrey Robison, age 62, passed
away November 24, 2013 due to cardiac
arrest while working near Vail,
Colorado. Jeff was born on November
18, 1951 in Fillmore, Utah to
Peggy Dian Brower and Jarold Robison.
In school, Jeff participated in basketball,

Jeff loved to be outdoors. A few of
his favorite activities were to snow
and water ski. Jeff was also an accomplished
desert motorcycle racer.

to lose. He would push himself and
his equipment to the breaking point,
many times resulting in damage to
Jeff worked his entire life which
began at home on the family farm.
Along with all of his siblings, he had
daily chores on the farm and learned
to work hard. That work ethic has
been with him throughout the years.
Working was one of his favorite hobbies.
When he wasn’t on the truck he
was working elsewhere.
He was always on the move; building
the storage units, perfecting the
yard, or scouring his neat garden
rows for weeds. This work ethic has
been passed onto his four kids. If they
looked like they didn’t have anything
to do, they were quickly recruited to

companion in Janette Rice. They

parents of four children, Mandi (Jim)
Rosenbeck of Nephi, UT; Jason Robison
of Provo, UT; Jaimi (Ronald)
Cepeda of South Jordan, UT; and Jade Richard Robison of Orem, UT.
Jeff was a loving husband, great
father and grandfather, and friend
to all he came into contact with. He
worked hard, even when he wasn’t
at work. He couldn’t ever sit still
as long as there was something that
needed to be done. He could build
and fix anything, and many of his
skills were self-taught. Jeff had a
contagious smile and a sense of humor
that could make anyone laugh.
Jeff enjoyed learning, being active,
playing sports, building, doing yard
work, participating in church callings
and activities, and being with his
family. His family was his number
one priority and he made it to all extracurricular
activities to support his
children no matter what the cost.
