Travis Cameron Robbins, 29 of Zanesville, passed away on December 15, 2020. He loved the nature and walks in the woods. He continues to walk today beside his Heavenly father. He was born February 3, 1991 to Kimberly K (Marvin) Shipley, and the late Donald R. Robbins. He was a graduate of Philo High School, where he loved to play sports. He was an iron worker by trade and attended Cornerstone Church.
After many endless days and long nights of searching for him, Travis is home. We are beyond thankful knowing: he is at peace. Travis was deeply loved and with the heartfelt prayers from so many, we believe he became a son, brother, and loved one to many. The loss of Travis has had a great impact on those who knew him, as well as those whom he never met. We are comforted in knowing he kept it “real” and tried to meet everyone where they were as he struggled with his own substance abuse. His mom feels a sense of pride in knowing her son was a kind and compassionate soul to all. He was one who never hesitated to greet you with one of his giant bear hugs and would try to live each day with a childlike innocence, never putting off anything until tomorrow. He believed that his God didn’t remove all conflict from his life, but instead, God walked beside him during the battles he faced. We shall be secure because there is hope (Job 11:18). Travis had a way of giving people hope in everyday life and it was though you could feel his love from his genuine smile. He was a true friend. He loved his momma, missed his dad, loved fishing with his brother Andrew, loved helping his Gram with anything she needed, and most importantly, he loved and adored his little girl, Milah. He always showed her what a fun dad was all about. His mom can still hear him say “right on”.
Travis was preceded in death by his father Donald Ray Robbins; Grandfathers, Timothy L. Romine and Donald L. Robbins; grandmother, Nancy J. Robbins; and survived by his little girl, Milah Marie Robbins; mother of his daughter, Brianna; his mom, Kim; his Gram Claudine Fern Romine; brother, Andrew (Emily) Robbins; three stepbrothers, Curtis (Danielle) Shipley, Mark (Olivia) Shipley, Brian (Chelsie) Shipley; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and a special nephew, Waylon Ray Robbins; in addition, countless family and friends who will miss him dearly.
The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to Detective Hittle and the Muskingum County Sheriff’s office, Golden Hearts a Voice 4 the Voiceless for the tireless efforts in searching for Travis these past five months; and to the people that helped pass out flyers, Thank you!
