Robin L. Christoe

Robin Leonard Christoe died April 30, 2002, of complications related to pneumonia. He was born on Whidbey Island Aug 15, 1935.

Robin was gifted in many areas. He was able to express himself in many media, such as singing, art, crafts, poetry, gardening and writing. As a child, he was well known for his singing voice, and was known during World War II as a child virtuoso. He later traveled and sang with the Navy Choir and sang many solos at prestigious government events. He was trained as a corpsman and had great compassion for people who were hurting.

His most fruitful and fulfilling years were during his 11-year marriage to Cyndi Christoe. As a couple, Robin and Cyndi were loving caregivers to many developmentally disabled people and ministered to many street people out of their shared faith in Jesus Christ. His other great love in life was his grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Cyndi, and a granddaughter, Riesa.

He is survived by his sister, Janet christoe, his brother, Tom, sons Joel Bret and Paul, grandchildren Liesel, Fiona, David, Michael, Joshua, Jessica, Elizabeth, Thomas and Daniel.

There were two goals that Robin wanted to accomplish in his golden years. One was to complete Bible school and become a licensed minister, which he did. The other was to return home to Whidbey Island. He will return home on May 7 at 1 p.m., when a graveside service will be held at Langley Woodmen Cemetery. A memorial service will be held at the house of prayer at 2 p.m., with Tom Christoe officiating.
