Richard Lee Robertson, 60, of Wichita Falls, Texas, died Sept. 24. Cremation took place at Falls Funeral Home. There will be a private memorial with family and a scattering of cremains in places special to his heart on Oct. 19 – his father's birthday.
Robertson was born May 21, 1952 in Brownfield, Texas, to Don Hudson Robertson and Bonnie Jean Robertson. He was raised and educated in Carlsbad and joined the Army
soon after high school.
He lived, worked and retired in Wichita Falls. He loved being with his children and grandchildren. His hobbies included collecting antiques and mechanics. He could fix anything. His other love was music – he could play guitar, harmonica and loved to sing. Even though he never realized his earthly dream with this, rest assured he will be in Heaven singing for Jesus! We love you and will always miss you, my brother. You were an inspiration to us all. See you on the other side.

He is also survived by four grandchildren: Rachel Benson, Jake Benson, Ember Frantz, and Ayden Rowland, all of Texas.
