Donald Kip Robinson age 66 passed away June 19, 2019 at his home in West Valley surrounded by his loving family.
Kip was born June 23, 1952 in Salt Lake City. He was the first child of Donald and Madalyn Robinson. He grew up in Magna Utah attending and graduating from Cyprus High School. He loved living in Magna and loved helping the community. He had many successful fundraisers for the Copper Club as well as an annual Sub for Santa for the people in Magna. If there was a “Mr. Magna” he would be that guy! Kip later graduated from LDS Business College. He worked for Kennecott Copper for over 30 years before retiring. (Kip was known to have made the best flapjacks up there!) He also managed and owned a shelving business on the side. Anyone that knows Kip knows his love for classic cars, the Raiders and his beloved Cubbies.
Kip’s life was centered around his children, family, friends and animals. He loved golfing, skiing and softball. He was recently inducted into the Utah Softball Hall of Fame. He was devoted to his family and friends throughout his life and will always be remembered for his loyalty and kindness and his willingness to help others. He loved his 3 daughters and grandchildren very much and he would do anything for them. They have many heartfelt memories of him and considerate it an honor to have cared for their Dad when he needed help. He was a great source of strength to them. Kip was a dedicated caretaker for his grandson who has Autism.
Kip is survived by a loving family and a multitude of caring friends.
