James Edward "Little Jim" Robbins, 66, died Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2006, at his home in Kingman. He was born July 10, 1940, in New London, Conn. At age 6 his family moved to Colorado where he lived until he came to Kingman 20 years ago.
He graduated from West High School, Denver, in 1958. He began a glazier apprenticeship in 1958 and worked for Jim's House of Glass for 11 years. He also worked for Yellow Cab and for the Kingman Daily Miner as a carrier. He was a member of the Christian Motorcycle Association and the First Southern Baptist Church of Kingman.
Little Jim was preceded in death by both parents, Carlos James Robbins and Jane Leslie Rogers, and by his son, James David Robbins. He is survived by his wife of 25 years, Michele Louise Clark. They were married on Sept. 6, 1981, in Las Vegas. He is also survived by his daughters, Janell Bay of Colorado and Jackie Richie of Utah; his sister, Diana (David) Carpenter of Oklahoma; his brother, Paul (Mary Lou) Robbins of Colorado; twelve grandchildren, among them Laura Ann Robbins of Colorado, Tasha Rene Robbins of Missouri, and David Dale and Jessica Kay Robbins of Kingman; and two great-grandchildren, one being Rocky James Eugene Owen Hamilton of Colorado.
He will be missed by everyone who knew him. He was a beloved father, husband and Grandpa. He loved to work puzzles of wolves, play on the computer and ride his motorcycle. He also enjoyed his four-legged "kids" (Jeanie, Annie, Queenie, Rosie - dogs - and Sandy and Scooter - cats).
The family would like to thank Dr. Mathney and his staff and KRMC Hospice for all of their help. Donations can be made to KRMC Hospice.
