Ken M. Robinson died Nov. 13, 2013 at his home in Shawnee, Kansas. He was born Oct 19, 1949 in Amarillo, Texas to Ferris M. and Gladys and Robinson who preceded him in death.
He was a graduate of Shawnee Mission East High School, Class of ’68 and worked for the City of Overland Park Kansas until his retirement in 2005.
Kenny loved motorcycles and began riding at the age of 16. He took many road trips and loved discovering new eateries and vistas. Kenny could talk for hours telling you about the workings of any motorcycle! In his retirement, when health prevented him from riding, he took joy in following the International Motorcycle Competitions and reading his many motorcycle magazines.
Uncle Kenny never missed a birthday or holiday celebration with his family and he never met a stranger. He will be remembered for his generosity and kind, gentle personality.
He is survived by his brother Gary Robinson of Independence, Missouri, sister Gail (Ray) Lee of Riverside, California, sister Kay (Larry) Kepler of Shawnee, Kansas and many nieces, nephews and extended family.
A Memorial “Celebration of Life” for Kenny will be held at his sister’s home, 5731 Westgate, Shawnee, KS 66216 at Saturday, December 14, 2013 from 4-6 pm. Light refreshments and lots of stories about Kenny are to be shared.
