Our dear son, brother, uncle and friend, Robyn Claire Arrison, went to his heavenly home on October 14, 2015.
Robyn Claire Arrison was born June 21, 1951 in Powers Lake, ND to Glenn and Doris (Enget) Arrison.
Robyn grew up on a three generation farm outside of Ross, ND. He graduated from Stanley High School in 1969 and attended one year of college at Minot State.
Robyn was drafted into the US Army on May 13, 1971 and served until his honorable discharge on November 18, 1974 at Ft. Bragg. He achieved the rank of SP4. Upon discharge from the United States Army, Robyn lived in Minneapolis, MN. He later moved to Fargo, ND where his sister and sister’s family lived.
Robyn liked adventure and parachuted while in the service. Upon discharge he took up scuba diving. He had a passion for music and pulled out his guitar when opportunity arose. He was a kind and warm soul who loved a sense of humor, was quick to laugh and enjoyed visits with family and friends.
