December 25th, Christmas 2020, will forever be remembered as the day we lost our beloved father, grandfather, uncle and friend, Chauncey Dale Robinson, 72, of Great Falls. A Graveside Service will be held on Thursday, December 31, 2020 at the Montana State Veterans Cemetery at Fort Harrison in Helena at 1:00 PM with full military honors.
Born in Atlus, OK on October 27, 1948 to Earl C. and Evelyn DeGrande Robinson, Chauncey moved with his family to Baker, MT when he was two years old. He graduated from Baker High School in 1967 and joined the U. S. Marine Corps in May of 1968 through the buddy system with his best friend, Randy Pool. While serving in the Vietnam War he earned the Rifle Marksmen Badge, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, a Good Conduct Medal and the Purple Heart. Upon his honorable discharge from the Marine Corps he returned to Baker where he lived until 1995, when he moved to Great Falls, MT for the remainder of his life.
Being a marksman, it was no surprise that Chauncey loved collecting guns, shooting, and hunting. He spent some time working in the oil fields and raising cattle. He enjoyed visiting family and friends and making bullet art. His dog, Lucky was his best bud.
“Dad was my ‘go to’ person for almost everything. I knew if I needed help with a problem, advice or fixing anything that he would always be there. After one of my many knee surgeries I was having problems sleeping. He talked on the phone with me for over 12 hours! Dad was a very caring and giving person for many people, not just me. He will be missed by many and always loved. Love you to the moon and back daddy!!”, Angel.
Survivors include his daughters, Angel Marie Lien and Tami Gaye Goldman; sisters, Rochelle Conroy and Belinda Miller; grandchildren, Cody and Hunter Lien, Jordan, Aaron and Jonah Goldman; his dog, Lucky.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Dana, Carlos, and Wink; sister, Maria; brother-in-law, Rolli Miller.
