Wesley “Bud” Robinson September 25, 1927 - March 3, 2021

Wesley Alfred Robinson (Bud) was born September 25, 1927 to Wesley and Ina Robinson. He was the youngest of four boys.

He is survived by sons Wesley (Larry) (Bonnie); Douglas (Anna) and daughter Donalda Peters. 11 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren also survive.

Wesley was predeceased by his first wife Mary Jane, his second wife Jeanne and his son-in-law John Peters.

Born and raised in Dryden, Wes worked for 33 years at the pulp and paper mill and then enjoyed 33 years of retirement.

In his younger days he was an avid fisherman and took great pride in his yard and garden. He was an avid crib player and couldn’t wait for company to arrive. The board was always set up.

He was very involved in the Free Methodist Church and Horticultural Society. Wes was a regular of the ‘McDonald’s Coffee Club’ for over 30 years, making sure they opened on time at 5 a.m. He enjoyed family gatherings and getting together with grandchildren and great-grandchildren, especially for their birthdays.

Due to COVID restrictions, a private family service will be held with interment in Dryden Cemetery.
