Robin Burns Montgomery Obituary
Robin Burns Montgomery, 81 of Denison Texas, left this life Saturday, September 8, 2018 surrounded by his family. Robin was born on January 26, 1937 in Denison to Oliver and Lela (Farrell) Montgomery. He is survived by his sister, Martha Johnson, Muldrow Oklahoma. He and his sister grew up in Carpenter's Bluff. He is also survived by his wife of 56 years Billie Byrd Heironimus, his children David Montgomery (Clare Williamson) of Ft Worth Texas, and Diana (Richard) Prosper of Aliquippa Pennsylvania. Grandchildren Ryan Prosper, Bradley Prosper and Quinn Montgomery. His nieces Jan (David) Sutter of Sherman Texas, Jeanne (Mike) Hunt of Austin Texas, Cynthia Johnson of Tulsa Oklahoma, Carolyn (Ken) Craft of Dallas Texas and Angie (Johnathan) Sparkman of Tulsa Oklahoma. There are many other beloved cousins and family members.
He proudly served his county in 1958 to 1963 in US Navy aboard the aircraft carrier Bon Homme Richard. When he returned from the Military, they moved to Dallas and later Mesquite. He worked at Texas Instruments in Richardson Texas for 18 years. Later he went to work at Mobil Oil at the Research and Development Center in Duncanville and then in Addison Texas for 15 years before retiring at the age of 59. Robin and Billie returned to Denison in 2003. They have enjoyed being with friends and family renewing old friendships and making new ones.
Robin lived his life doing the things that he loved, being with family and friends, playing soccer for 38 years, working in his shop on cars, making his own parts when he couldn't find what he needed. He enjoyed creating and building things such as his dump truck that he took great pride in using. He worked in summers all day killing Honey Locust Trees. Robin also enjoyed helping someone to make something that would make life easier or better for them.
He will also be missed by his beloved furry companions: Jet, Onyx, Pepper and Sugar; also the many that left before him in particular Miss Kitty and Baby. Miss Kitty would go to the farm with him in the morning and come back home with him every evening.
Robin chose to donate his body for medical science and research. There will be a private service at a later date.
The family and their friends would like to Thank the Doctors and staff in the Emergency Room, ICU Unit and the 8th Floor of TMC for the wonderful care that he was given. We also want to Thank the Home Hospice Group. Everyone at TMC was very kind and helpful.
