Our beloved son and brother, Trevor James Robbins, left us unexpectedly on Monday, October 14, 2019.
Trevor was born on December 27, 1989, in Boise, Idaho to Stephen and Deborah Robbins, joining older brother Scott. Although Stephen and Deb later divorced, they continued to be united as parents and in 1996, Trevor gained another mother when Stephen and Debra married, adding younger brother Casey in 1998.
Graduating from Capital High School in 2008, Trevor received a full ride scholarship to George Washington University in Washington DC where he graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Affairs. After spending a summer in Ghana working at an orphanage through the AFS foreign exchange program during high school, Trevor’s global spirit was sparked, and he later spent his junior year of college in Beijing, China to further his immersion into another culture. Trevor’s latest aspiration was to work for NASA and we have no doubt he would have made it happen!
During his college years, Trevor worked for the Peace Corps and upon graduation returned home to Boise. He worked for MarkMonitor for almost seven years before starting work at Truckstop.Com in July, 2019.
Our Trevor put his heart and soul into everything he did. He saw and accomplished things in his 29 years that most people don’t accomplish in their lifetimes, and we lived vicariously through him and his global adventures. We will so miss his smile that lit up the room upon entering, captivating everyone’s attention no matter if they were young or old. He had a kind hearted soul for others, being the first to remember birthdays and other holidays that were cause for celebration.
He leaves behind his mother, Deborah Robbins, his father and other mother, Stephen and Debra Robbins, his brothers Scott with his wife Andrea Robbins and Casey Robbins, all of Boise; grandmothers Catherine Robbins and Carolyn Gerberding, as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was proceeded in death by his grandparents, Harold and Marge Buchanan, and grandfathers, Ray Robbins and Orville Gerberding.
Memorial services will be held on Thursday, October 24, 2019, at True Hope First Baptist Church, 607 North 13th Street, Boise, Idaho 83702.
In lieu of flowers, the family is suggesting donations be made to Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline at idahosuicideprevention.org website, Conrad Strays, PO Box 84, Middleton, Idaho 83644, or a charitable organization of your choice.
