Michael Leon Robertson Obituary

A service for Michael Leon Robertson, 57, of Alamogordo, New Mexico, will be held at Anderson Bethany Chapel in Roswell, New Mexico, Sunday, Dec. 21, 2014 at 2 p.m.

There will be no graveside service. Michael went to heaven Dec. 9, 2014 near Carrizozo, New Mexico.

Michael was known by many as Cowboy or Uncle Cowboy. He was born Feb. 11, 1957 in Roswell, New Mexico, to Marion (Robbie) Robertson and Patsy Robertson. He worked for CCI in Alamogordo, but he was a jack of many trades. There wasn't much he couldn't do or couldn't fix. He was also a volunteer firefighter. For many years, he earned his living as a truck driver. He took the time to teach a very special man, Ralph Fairbanks, of Henderson, Nevada, how to drive a truck so that he could obtain a CDL. For that, Ralph has always been grateful and how he supported his family for over 30 years, thanks to Michael.

Michael is survived by a large, loving family that will deeply miss him. His sons, Randy Robertson and his wife Leslie, of Roswell, New Mexico, Mike Robertson and his wife Hannah of Roswell New Mexico, Eric Kilgore of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Dustin Robertson of Loveland, Colorado, and Clayton Cagle and his wife Amber of Marion, Ohio. His siblings, Kay Manning and her husband Rick, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Debbie Coker, of Roswell, New Mexico, Terri Newburn and her husband Ronald, of Casper, Wyoming, Jerry Robertson and his wife Judy, of Oklahoma, and Teena Shelton and her husband Les of Roswell, New Mexico. His grandchildren, as wonderful as they come, Riley Robertson, Lindsey Robertson, Sariya Robertson, Demi Robertson, Jonah Kennon and Kameron Kennon. He also has numerous nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, and cousins.

Michael was preceded in death by his parents Robbie and Patsy Robertson. Also by his grandparents Charlie and Cleo Clements and Willie and Lillie Robertson.
