Dennis Jay Robinson Sr.

HULBERT — Funeral services for Dennis Jay Robinson Sr. will be held on Thursday, May 8, at 2 p.m. at Reed Culver Chapel with his son, Cody Robinson, offering the eulogy. Interment will follow at Towie Cemetery. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, May 7, from 1 until 3 p.m. with his family receiving guests. Online condolences for the family may be left at www.reedculver.com.

Pallbearers for Dennis include Andy Oosahwe Jr., Willard Oosahwe, Harry Oosahwe, Preston Oosahwe, Larry Oosahwe, and Brandon Oosahwe. Honorary pallbearers include Steve McDaniel and his nephews.

Dennis Jay Robinson Sr. was born on Dec. 8, 1949, in Ottowa, Ill., the son of J.M. and Barbara Joyce (Fields) Robinson. After he finished school, he married the love of his life, Dessie Oosahwe, on Feb. 18, 1977. Together they raised a family of three boys, Dennis Jay, James Michael, and Cody.

Dennis worked in the construction industry as an experienced brick mason. He was very skilled at his work and took great pride in everything he built. Whenever he wasn’t working, he enjoyed chicken fights and an afternoon playing poker with his friends. In the evening he enjoyed watching a little TV, with “American Pickers” being his favorite show.

Most of all, Dennis was a family man. There was nothing he held so dear as his wife, children, and his special little grandson, Jaxton. He was so very proud of every new accomplishment Jaxton made.

The Lord called Dennis home from his labors on Friday, May 2, at his home in Hulbert.

He was 64 years old. The love and laughter he shared with his family and friends will be greatly missed.

Dennis is preceded in death by his mother and father.

Those left to cherish his memory include his loving wife, Dessie Robinson of the home in Hulbert; three sons, Dennis Jay Robinson Jr. of the home, James Micheal Robinson and companion, Tencie Bear of Tahlequah, and Cody C. Robinson also of Tahlequah, OK. He leaves one brother, Micheal D. Robinson of Decatur, Ill.; and three sisters, Joyce “Sis” Robinson, Joanne Robinson, and Mary Frances Land-Thorogood also of Decatur. His legacy lives on in his adored grandson, Jaxton Bear of Choteau, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends and loved ones.

Reed-Culver Funeral Home, 117 W. Delaware, (918) 456-2551.
