Alan P Robinson

Alan Paul Robinson, 69, passed away May 17, 2017 at Asante Three Rivers Medical Center in Grants Pass, Oregon after a long illness. May his Spirit soar free from pain and suffering. He was born on July 3, 1947 in Chicago, Illinois to Paul and Arlene Robinson. Alan graduated from Lassen Forestry College, Susanville, California in 1969. His career was with the Oregon Forest Service and BLM. He had a passion for planting pine seedlings and fighting forest fires. During his retirement he spent many summers with his dog living in remote fire towers reporting forest fires. Alan loved hunting chucker birds with his Brittney Spaniels in the Steen Mountains in S/E Oregon where his remains will be scattered per his request. Alan is survived by his much loved son, Travis, daughter-in-law, Kelly, granddaughter, Fiona, grandson, Jack of Murphy, sister Marla Outfleet of Medford, sister, Gail Ritchie of Applegate and his beloved friend of 44 years, Anita O'Rourke, of Medford, Oregon who took care of him his last 5 years.

So sorry to hear of Al's passing. At one point he was a fellow lookout on the Grants Pass ODF unit (2000-2005). I can still picture him working on his multitude of crafts up in the lookout, feathers all over the place... I still have a little dreamcatcher and a wooden letter opener that he made. He loved his videocams and spotter scopes. Al was a very kind and caring person and I am relieved that he is free of the pain that he endured and hope he is in a better place. He will be missed.

When Alan and I dated from 1974 to 1983, he was a fabulous dancer. People used to stand back to watch the two blondes dance. He loved to send flowers with sweet notes. When he came home from working in the woods, he often had a bouquet of wild flowers to present. We took many trips together to Lake Tahoe, Reno, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Portland and Hawaii. My last trip with him was to Crescent City at the Lighthouse Hotel over looking the ocean last August. Alan loved the ocean and had been a long board surfer during his youth in Santa Cruz. He also surfed in Hawaii in 1980.

Alan was one of the sweetest persons I ever knew. He never had a bad word for anyone even if they had terribly wronged him. He loved his son, Travis, with all of his heart. He was so happy when he got to see his grandchildren, Fiona and Jack.
