Robert Laubhan Obituary

Robert Alvin Laubhan went to meet his Savior on June 28th, 2023.

Robert was born October 29th, 1949, in Shattuck, OK (he would say Texas) to Mary and Alvin Laubhan of Follett. He is the third of six Laubhan children. His mother Mary (Trenfield) Laubhan was Robert’s angel on earth until her passing in 1983.  Robert is proceeded in death by his parents and two sisters, Janette and Nancy.  He is survived by two sisters, Linda and Ellen, and one brother John T., along with 5 nephews, 2 nieces, 6 great nephews and 3 great nieces. 

Robert graduated from Follett High School in 1968. He attended Oklahoma Panhandle State University where he played football and ran track. In 1970 he married Darlis Todd, and they were married for 14 years.  Together they had 2 children, Trent and Trena.  Trent and Nichole Laubhan reside in Amarillo, Texas and have 4 children, Kaitlyn, Riley, Alex, and Shaylee.  Trena and Kevin Rider live in Bushland, Texas, and have 3 children, Sheridan, Ashton and Austin.

Robert lived out “The Dash” (by Linda Ellis) enjoying a variety of activities, seeing beautiful places and being with those he loved.  Some of his favorite pastimes included; firearms, skiing, hunting, camping, kayaking, reading, driving the open roads, and a good bowl of ice cream. He loved to explore new territory from mountains to lakes and deserts.   He especially loved the open skies of the Arizona desert.  Robert took every opportunity to share his faith with others.  He took time to explain gun safety to his children and grandchildren.  As grandchildren were involved in many activities and events, Grandpa was there to watch from the sidelines.  Friends and family were ”blessed” by visits about agriculture, history, faith, guns, and politics.  One of his favorite holidays was Memorial Day, in which he spent hours selecting flowers to place on the graves of loved ones.

Mr. Laubhan spent the majority of his life dedicated to the farming industry.  He had his own custom farming business, worked with livestock, and worked on a pistachio orchard in Arizona.  His heart was truly full when he was sitting on a combine during harvest.  He also worked several years for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice before his retirement.

Robert will be greatly missed by family and friends.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
How do you know Robert Alvin Laubhan?
We are sorry for your loss.
Help others honor Robert's memory.
