Official Obituary of


November 27, 1961 ~ March 28, 2024 (age 62) 62 Years Old


Allen Robinson, 62, passed away peacefully at his home on a ranch near Wheatland, Wyoming on Thursday, March 28, 2024.

Allen was born on Monday, November 27, 1961 in Mexico, Missouri to Claude Robinson Jr. and Betty (Robinson) Schipper. He grew up on his family’s purebred hog and cattle operation with his younger brothers, Eddie and Chris.  Allen was active in FFA and graduated from Wellsville High School.  His passion for raising and exhibiting top quality livestock began early and that is how he first encountered the love of his life, Stephanie (Carver) Robinson who he would marry on November 1, 1980.

Allen and Stephanie started their life together in Iowa working on a Limousin cattle operation, the first stop of a long career spent chasing dreams in the seedstock cattle & horse business.

In 1982, the young couple moved back to work on his family’s Angus cattle and Yorkshire swine operation and Allen and Stephanie started their own family with the birth of their first child, Lacey. 

Allen then joined the team at Huckfeldt-Krebs in Gordon, Nebraska, an opportunity that allowed him to develop his talents and reputation in show and sale cattle management.  Their second daughter, Kera was born during the family’s time in Nebraska.

In 1986, the Robinson family headed south to B&L Ranch near Shawnee, Oklahoma. While at B&L, Allen’s talent and relentless work ethic propelled the operation to great success in the show ring.  During his time there, his many achievements were headlined by exhibiting the Champion Angus Female and being named Herdsman of the Year at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado.

Allen then put the valuable skills, experience, and network that he had accumulated throughout his travels to good use closer to home as the Manager of the Diamond A Ranch near Montgomery City, Missouri. Allen worked alongside his family to build the Angus program from the ground up and market bulls across the region. He truly enjoyed the challenge of crafting genetics that would make his customers successful and stand the test of time. While at Diamond A Ranch his family grew and was complete with the birth of his son Layne. Over those years exhibiting cattle with his family at events across the nation brought him great joy, making fond memories and cherished friendships along the way.

Allen found his greatest fulfillment in his later years working on ranches in the beautiful area surrounding Wheatland, Wyoming.  There he was able to realize and enjoy the potential of the foundation Quarter Horses that he had spent a lifetime breeding and loved so deeply. 

Allen had a natural way with all animals and a calling to care for them. His quiet demeanor, keen ability to read them, and an eye for quality livestock made him an outstanding stockman.  One of his greatest gifts was that he could always find the inherent good in any animal or any person.  Realizing that true perfection wasn’t attainable, but that every creature and person had value, Allen was kind, generous and always quick to share a smile or word of encouragement.

Aside from his passion for livestock, his greatest pride and joy was his family.  Allen loved working beside Layne and Lacey on their livestock operations and helping them grow.  He took immense pride in his four grandchildren that he loved with all his heart and he treasured his time with them.  His entire family will be forever grateful that he taught us that with a strong faith, redemption is always possible and that finishing the race of life strong as a servant of God is the most important thing.  

Allen’s survivors include his mother, Betty Schipper; his wife of 43 years, Stephanie; three children, Lacey (Brad), Kera (Darren), and Layne (Mallory); grandchildren, Elijah, JaLee, Boston, and Olson; brothers, Eddie (Tammy) and Chris (Marcia); and numerous nieces and nephews.
