Colton C. Robinson, 13

The angels took our little man way too soon.  On June 6, 2021, Colton Clayton Robinson, 13, passed away in a tragic ATV accident.

Colton was born January 24, 2008 in Lewiston Idaho to Justin and Jackie (Dupuis) Robinson.  Since the day he was born he was the apple of daddy’s eye and mommy’s little boy.

His older sister, Caristae, enjoyed bossing him around, just as he enjoyed bossing around his little sister, Emma.  Whenever there was trouble or fighting amongst the three, you could bet Colton was in the middle of it.  He loved his sisters dearly and it was amazing to see how they could all be fighting one minute, then lying in bed together watching a movie the next. 

Colton had just finished 7th grade at Highland Highschool in Craigmont Idaho.  He was known to be the class clown and always kept the teachers on their toes.  He enjoyed playing football and wrestling. 

The outdoors was his biggest passion.  He enjoyed camping, fishing and hunting.  Colton was like his dad in the sense that he could get in anything and drive it, from his dads loaded log truck to grandpa’s excavator.

Around 2016 Colton was introduced to dirt bikes and fell in love with them.  He had always been told “If you can start it, you can ride it.”  At the age of 10 Colton was able to start and ride his dads 250.  Colton soon got his best friend Harlan Skelton into dirt bikes and the boys became inseparable.  Harlan would spend the weekends with Colton hunting, fishing, camping, and of course riding their dirt bikes.  During the week, Colton would be at Harlan’s house helping with fencing, farming, and working cows.  The boys shared everything, including their birthdays.

Colton was preceded in death by his Great Grandparents Cliff and Hildy Miller, Great Grandmother Judy Robinson, Great Grandfather Herb Sarbacher, Great Grandparents Bev and Llyod Dupuis, Uncle Chuck Dupuis, and, Kenny Dupuis.

He is survived by his parents, Justin and Jackie (Dupuis) Robinson, sisters, Caristae and Emma Robinson, Great Grandma Jayne (Glenda) Brown and Betty (Elizabeth) Sarbacher, Great Grandfather Ernie Robinson, Grandparents Sam and Susan Robinson and Mike and Linda Dupuis.  Aunts and Uncles which include Jearamey and Heather (Robinson) Ottawa, Clay and Toni Robinson, Dennis and Cary Robinson, Chris and Angela Economen, George and Jannine (Dupuis) Riley, Tammy Dupuis, and Jason and Melissa Dupuis. Colton is also survived by numerous cousins and his best friend Harlan Skelton and his family.

Funeral Service will be held Monday, June 14, 2021 at 2 p.m. at Highland Highschool in Craigmont ID.  Burial will follow at Criagmont Cemetery. Potluck dinner will be held at 4:00 p.m. at the American Legion Hall in Craigmont. Arrangements are under the direction of the Blackmer Funeral Home, Grangeville.
