Robbins died in service to our nation in Afghanistan on June 30, 2019 and is being laid to rest in the Ben Lomond Cemetery in North Ogden. Attorney General Sean D. Reyes issued the following statement:
“The AG’s Office joins fellow Utahns in mourning the loss of Sergeant First Class Robbins and honoring his ultimate sacrifice. A patriot to the end, he will be remembered for the many lives he saved as a Green Beret and decorated medic overseas on multiple deployments.
“My wife Saysha, who is from North Ogden, and I send our deepest condolences to his loved ones, his wife and his baby boy during this time of mourning and indescribable loss. May God bless his family and our nation he so valiantly served.”
Sgt. 1st Class Robbins’ funeral will take place at St. James Catholic Church and a burial with military honors will follow at Ben Lomond Cemetery. The services are open to the public.
