Bert began "his perfect sail" after passing of pneumonia on July 13, 2020 in Hospice at Sunrise-Naperville, IL. at 85. He led a happy, full life serving his country, family, company, and community. He was an Eagle Scout at age 12 always living by its Oath and Laws. Raised in Elmhurst, IL he attended York High school and Miami University, Ohio. He served on a minesweeper after graduating from Navy OCS. Bert worked for Chicago Rawhide, SKF in sales and marketing for 38 years ending as EVP International Sales. He was a scout leader, church supporter, homeless shelter chaperon, and loved music, painting, and sailing. Preceding him in death was his daughter, Cara Robins and survivors are his brother, Jim Robins, son, Thomas Robins, granddaughter, Alexandria Robins, and step-daughters Wendy Zardzin and Karen Grayheck. He donated his body to medical research - no funeral or grave. His spirit continues with all that knew him.

Now this from a classmate at York H.S. Class of '52 --- H. Bruce Downey:---

"I did not personally know Bert while we were together at York H.S. Bert came to York in our third year --- 1950-1951 --- and while at York --- Bert enjoyed art. Later, at several of our Class Reunions, Bert made the drawings for our covers relating to these Reunions. He was an exceptional artist. On behalf of the entire Class of 1952 of York H.S. I wish to pay Bert our highest respect and honor for a lifetime well spent." NOTE:--- I maintain a special website for all the deceased members of the York H.S. Class of 1952." If you'd like to see it --- please send me an e-mail:---
