Raymond Robinson

     Raymond Delbert Robinson, 82, of Nampa, died Tuesday, April 18, 1995, at the Nampa hospital.  Funeral services will be conducted at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 22, 1995, at the Nampa 12th Ward, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1500 Smith Ave. Ext.  Bishop Ward Stauffer of the Ward will officiate.  Burial will follow in the Hillcrest Memorial Gardens, Caldwell.  Services are under the direction of the Alsip Funeral Chapel, Nampa.
    Ray was born on August 28, 1912, in Thatcher, AZ, the fifth of nine children born to Orson and Kathryn Horn Robinson.   His family moved around all over the West, spending time in Utah, Neva-da, California and Idaho as well as Arizona.  He went to high school and worked with his dad in Los Angeles, CA.
    In 1931, he married Violet Milton and they had two sons, Don and Lynn.  Ray was a photographer and they lived in Payette, ID, for several years.  In 1945, he joined the Navy and worked in the microfilm section in Washington, D.C., Boston, MA, and Sandpoint, ID. 
    He married Hazel Judd on October 1, 1945, and they moved to California, where they raised their six children, Sheila, Ray, Sharon, Sandra, Kathryn and Christine.  Ray really enjoyed photography and had a photograph studio for several years.  He was also a cartographer and in 1948 began a map business in Los Angeles which was successful for 40 years until he was forced to retire because of his health.  He had lived in Nampa since 1988.
    Ray loved swap meets, traveling, tomatoes, the ocean and beach, and babies.  Nothing made him happier than watching and playing with his small children and grandchildren.  His greatest love was his family.  He loved to give gifts, and delighted in making Christmas a magical occasion for his family.
    Ray is survived by his wife of nearly 50 years, Hazel Robinson of Nampa; seven children and their spouses, Don Robinson of Los Angeles, CA, Sheila and Ray McGee of Nampa, Ray and Teresa Robinson of Boise, Sharon and Dave Shea of Placitas, NM, Sandra and Jim Christensen of Yerington, NV, Kathryn Robinson of Boise, Christine McMichael of Nampa; two brothers, Boyd Robinson of Los Angeles, CA, and Doug Robinson of San Diego, CA; two Sisters, Dona Johnson of Boise and Helene Phillips of Tempe, AZ; 22 grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
    He was preceded in death by his parents; three brothers, Patrick, Joseph and Isaac Robinson; a sister, June Judd; and a son, Lynn Robinson.
    The family would like to express heartfelt thanks to Midland Care Center employees for the tender loving care they extended to Ray during the two years he resided there.
