Magna, Utah – Frank Junior Robison (a.k.a. J.R.) passed away quietly during the night on March 18, 2018 from the effects of cancer. He was born July 23, 1946 in Burbank, California, the 6th child of Franklin Reeve & Fern Blake Robison. He grew up in Bennion, Utah working around his grandfather’s farm. His many Blake family relatives were an integral part of his upbringing. Frank met and married the love of his life, Cherie on March 17, 2006.
Frank worked in many trades that he became proficient at, including journeyman electrician, sheet-rocker and carpenter. He was an all-around handyman and well-known for his woodworking. After retirement, Frank could often be found in his home wood shop crafting wood furniture and other pieces. His favorite creations were the pens he turned on his lathe, which he proudly shared with family and friends. You knew you were special to him if you were gifted one of his prized creations.
He was always willing to share his knowledge of the trades by helping others and offering his expertise. He never hesitated to provide a helping hand to someone who needed assistance to do or fix something. And he loved learning about the latest new thing in the world that surrounded him. Computer technology provided him with countless hours of entertainment and educational opportunities.
