Ronald L. Robinson

Ronald L. Robinson was born in Torrington, WY, on Aug. 22, 1935, to Harold and Alyce Robinson. He was an Eagle Scout and graduated from College High School in Bartlesville, OK, in 1953. He then joined the Marines/Navy to train as a medic and served until 1957. He became a pharmacy student at the University of Iowa, met his wife June in Colorado, and graduated from the University of Iowa Pharmacy School in 1961.

Ron and June moved to Lakewood, CO, to fulfill his internship and in 1962 settled in Evergreen where he practiced pharmacy and later owned the Medical Center Pharmacy. While in Evergreen he was a member of Kiwanis, volunteer ambulance driver, Chamber of Commerce, member and elder of Church of the Hills and ardent supporter of his children’s sport events and activities. His hobby of repairing clocks became a promising business, “Antique Clock Repair.”

In 1989, he and his wife “retired” to Glenwood Springs. After restoring a 1903 Victorian, he and June opened a Bed and Breakfast, “Back In Time,” where for 10 years visitors from far and wide came to stay and enjoy Glenwood Springs. He is survived by his wife, June, of 55 years; sister, Beverly (Ray) York; children, Susan Jacobs, Christy (Mike) Danska, Kent (Beth) Robinson and Cheryl (Mike) Newberry. He will be greatly missed by his grandchildren, Brandon Jacobs; Chase, Taylor and Jack Danska; Katherine Robinson; and Jessica, Michelle and Mike Newberry; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A celebration of Ron’s life will be held on Saturday, May 10, at 1 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church in Glenwood Springs, Colo.
