October 16, 1954 - July 20, 2021
Robin was born in the Fall, on October 16, 1954, as the 4th child of Edward H. and Mildred Allen Tanner’s 5 children. Robin grew up in Granger, Utah, on the Northeast corner of 4100 S and 2200 W. He attended Granger Elementary, Valley Jr. High, and Cottonwood High School. Robin tragically suffered the loss of his Father when he was fourteen years old. After the passing of his father, his mother remarried and the family relocated to Canada for a time, eventually moving back home to Utah. In 1974 Robin Married Vicki Sue Darrington. They had one daughter, Honilyn Darrington (Daniel Stransky). Robin and Vicki later divorced. On April 22, 1977, Robin married the love of his life, his beloved wife Maureen Maynes. Together they had six children Tammy Rosana (Dan Ralph), Mindy Sparkle (Darrin Sipes), Candy Ann (Paul Maxfield), Robyn Chrystal (Forrest Nice), Robin Edward II (Jasmine), and Timothy Adam (Christy). Robin and Maureen raised up a very tight knit family. Robin and Maureen love all seven of their children dearly and taught them to love each other dearly. They are the proud grandparents of 22 grandchildren, who make up their whole world. His family is the legacy Robin leaves behind. Robin was employed most of his life at Tesco Williamson, in Salt Lake City. He was a welder building dump bodies. His children have many memories of going to have lunch with Dad at work. When a dump truck drove by with Tesco mud flaps and a flying “W”, his kids would often ask, “Dad, did you build that one?” They loved to see their dad’s handy work around town. Robin was forced to retire early when he was diagnosed with that stupid damn Myasthenia Gravis, which would change the rest of his life. Robin is a man of God. He made an effort throughout his life to teach his family the importance of prayer. His family has many memories of praying together as a family. He and Maureen taught their family that in some situations in life all you can do is pray and have faith in our Heavenly Father. If we trust Him everything will be alright. On July 20, 2021, Robin was reunited with his son, Robin Edward Tanner II, and his granddaughter, Holly Aubrey Yates, as he passed away peacefully, at home in his bed, surrounded by his loved ones. Robin is survived by his wife, 6 of his children, 21 grandchildren, brother; Lynn Tanner, sisters; Arlene Lowell, Nea Jean McDaniel, Terrie Tanner, stepbrothers; Alled Bates, and Brian Walker, many nieces and nephews, one aunt, and many cousins that he cherished and valued greatly throughout his life. He is preceded in death by his son Robin II, his granddaughter Holly, his parents Edward and Mildred, stepsister Diana Hoganson, and many other loved ones. Robin will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
