Arthur William Robinson, BHS '67 (1949-2016)

Arthur William Robinson
June 27, 1949 - July 16, 2016

We send our heartfelt condolences to Art's family and to Jo Elaine Morton who wrote:
"Rest in peace Art and thank you for getting me out of Burbank and appreciating waves and country and for our precious daughter, Lisa Peaches ~ Forever a part of me."

JULY 24, 2016 UPDATE
Arthur William  Robinson

Arthur William Robinson Tribute
Date Of Birth: June 27, 1949
Date Of Death: July 16, 2016

Arthur William Robinson, 67, of Napili, went to be with Jesus on Saturday, July 16, 2016, while under the care of Island Hospice in Kahului.

He leaves his three siblings, Suzanne Elliott, Sandra Robinson, and John Robinson; his three daughters, Lisa (Jay) Whitten, Chantiel (Jeremy) Reese, and Keili Bell; six grandchildren; two nieces; a nephew; and many close friends.

Raised in Burbank, CA, the son of Billie and Shirley (Gabhart) Robinson, he had a childhood filled with adventure. His father was an experimental aircraft pilot, and his mother often participated in women's air derby's. Art learned to fly an airplane before he learned to drive and he once mentioned that the family would fly to various airports around California to sample different airport delicacies. For instance, they knew which airport had the best burgers and which airport had the best banana cream pies and milk shakes.

As a child Art and his siblings were allowed to use their father's tools and building materials, so he built go carts, race cars, a tree house, and many surfboards while growing up. He and his siblings also helped their father build racing planes in the garage, and his knowledge of aerodynamics, wind patterns, and ocean currents was extensive. Once when Art was about nine years old, his father told him to see how long he could keep the plane soaring in the air with the engine off. They rode the air currents all the way up to Northern California and a family of Condors flew right next to the plane, looking at them while gliding by in silence.

Art loved to surf and after exploring the California and Baja, Mexico coastlines, decided to move to Hawaii. Moving to Maui was like love at first sight. Art made many friends from all walks of life and shaped many custom surfboards, often displaying his creative airbrushed artwork on "Lost Art" and "Secret Weapon" surfboards. He also loved animals and harbored many birds, cats, and dogs during his lifetime.

During Art's last days he often repeatedly prayed "Thank you Jesus for my life. I love life. I love everybody." He wanted to make sure that everyone in his life knew how much he loved them. Fortunately, he was able to personally tell many of his friends and family how much he cared during his last month of life. He was a kind, big hearted person who did his best to help his friends. He remained positive and refused to give up hope that he would get better. He will be deeply missed.

A life celebration will be held at D.T. Fleming beach park on Saturday, July 23, at 10:30 a.m. Bring a dish and some anecdotes to share. Ashes will be spread earlier that morning (8:30) at Subs/Coconuts.

Michael Lewis, BHS '67, (1949-2015)

We are sad to learn from Michael's wife, Kathie, that he passed away September 15, 2015, after a two- year battle with cancer. We send our deepest condolences to Kathie and the family.

Michael Howard Lewis
Aug. 15, 1949 - Sep. 15, 2015

Michael Howard Lewis, son of Howard and Hazel Lewis, husband, father, brother, uncle, and constant helping hand, is loved as acutely as he is missed. Always eager to help others, Michael sought out and valued close-knit communities wherever he was. From Guam to Oklahoma, Michael enjoyed being a part of something larger than himself. He made friends everywhere he went, with his offbeat sense of humor and appreciation for the kindness of others. Michael loved flying, sailing, travelling, eating good food, listening to live music, playing with kids and dogs -- but above all, he loved his family and friends. Michael spoke fondly of his childhood in Burbank, CA. It was there that he found his passion for flying, which eventually led him to Continental Airlines and Guam. Michael loved the community and looseness of island life and spent his free time on the beach and sailing. After his contract in Guam Operations was up, Michael transferred to Hawaii, where he got to know Kathie. Just a week after they started dating, Michael began applying for jobs that would take him to the mainland, where Kathie lived. Ten days after he got a job in Los Angeles, Michael and Kathie were married.

The next 34 years would see Michael in three different states -- Oklahoma, California, and finally, Nevada. In each state he found lifelong friends, whether it was in his neighborhood in Broken Arrow, Thursday breakfasts at Nini’s in Burlingame, or at LifePoint Church in Minden, where he loved working Guest Central and being in fellowship with his small group. He also treasured the community at Century 21 Clark Properties, where he was a realtor for the past nine years. Michael was known for his good attitude, his example of perseverance, and his will to live. He was baptized in Lake Tahoe and had a quiet and steady faith. He loved seeing the colors change in the Genoa wetlands and watching the sunsets and sunrises. He will be remembered for having a spirit even more full than he would pack the dishwasher.

Michael continues to live in the hearts of his wife, Kathie, his daughter, Erin, his son-in-law, Chris, and the rest of the Lewis, Hughes, Carpenter, and Churchill families. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, October 17, 2016, at LifePoint Church, 1095 Stephanie Way, Minden. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the Carson Tahoe Health Foundation for either the sponsor of a stay at the Merriner Cottages or their Cancer Resource Center -- both in support of the comfort and care of cancer patients.
