Robin Dean Wasson, 61, died peacefully on Oct. 28, 2018, at Talbot Hospice House in Easton, Md.  He was surrounded by his family who loved him dearly.

He was born on Jan. 21, 1957, in Stuttgart, West Germany, the son of Jacqueline Holthouse Wasson and the late William Dean Wasson. He grew up in Wabash.

Robin served honorably in the United States Air Force from August 1975 to February 1985 and a year after that in the Air Force Reserves. He was a Security Specialist for 3 years and for the last 8 years of his service he was an Electronic Technician serving as a crew member on reconnaissance aircrafts. He received several honorable ribbons along with an Air Force Commendation Medal. He was very proud and honored to serve his country in the United States Air Force.        

Robin married Michele Ann Madison from Flint, Mich.. They met each other while both serving in the United States Air Force. They were married Dec. 3, 1980.  Together, they had five children and made their home in Easton, Maryland.

He was employed with Lockheed Martin as an Electronic Engineer Technician. He worked there for 26 years before having to leave on long term disability due to his health.

Robin enjoyed spending time with his family. Sunday family dinners were always the highlight of his week. He loved playing with his grandkids and having them curl up with him on his chair to watch movies. His family meant the world to him. He was an avid bowler and was on a few different bowling leagues throughout the years. He loved listening to music and always had a special love for classic rock. Robin was a quiet man who enjoyed the simple things in life -- sitting on his porch swing with an iced tea watching the birds or playing a card game with his family. He was a kind man and a great listener. He loved God and sharing his beliefs with others. He will be greatly missed.
