Robin A. Hamlin
September 10, 1951 – April 29, 2018
Born in Roswell, NM
Resided in Eau Claire, WI
Robin Alfred Hamlin peacefully passed away in the early morning of April 29th, at home, surrounded by his immediate family. He was a dedicated husband, father, brother and friend to many. Robin was always willing to help others before helping himself. His family has been both blessed and grateful to have had him in their lives and share in his journeys.
Robin served in the Army during the Vietnam War from 1969-1972 and continued to serve his country at home earning several decorations and commendations.
Robin loved his dog Sadie and grand-puppies Rosie and Reggie and has always been a lover of animals. Hours were spent in letting his dogs do whatever they wanted to do. Robin’s love of animals did not stop with dogs; feeding the squirrels and birds was a daily pleasure for him.
Robin spent many years in the home inspection, and home remodeling business and was a proficient wood worker. Robin built his own woodshop and took great pleasure in making items as small as stools and as large as sail boats.
Thank you Bird for everything you did for us and helping us to be strong, confident, and self sufficient in many ways. Devoted husband to Jae Hamlin, loving father to Shelby Elizabeth (Tyler) Bowe, loyal brother of sisters Colleen (Ryan) Hamlin Gilbert, Heidi Hamlin Davidson, brother to William Chase Hamlin, Jr., the late Gale Dee Caudle, the late Eric Phelps Hamlin, and the late parents William and Lucille (Kraff) Hamlin, the fun-loving brother in law of Jim (Tamra) Sahagian, Jean (Adrian) Marsden and son in law to John and Joy Sahagian.
Further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
The Hamlin family would like to thank the Mayo Clinic Home Hospice Unit and the Albert J. & Judith A. Dunlap Cancer Center for the loving care and treatment during Robin’s last months and last days.
