Paul F. Robbins, age 85 of Lima, passed at 5:22 p.m., Monday, January 22, 2024 at Lima Memorial Health Care.  He was born August 24, 1938 in Bourne, MA to the late John David and Bessie Corinne Paine Robbins.  On September 25, 1960 he married Mary L. O’Donnell who survives in Lima.

After graduating, Paul enlisted in the U.S. Marines and later served in the U.S. Army. He retired as a plumber and pipefitter from the Local Union 776 of Lima. Paul was an active member of the Lima Eagles and Elks. He had a hobby of collecting coins and enjoyed the occasional thrill of gambling.  Born in Massachusetts, he was a passionate sports enthusiast, particularly devoted to the Boston Celtics, Boston Red Sox, and the Boston Bruins. He found joy in cheering for these teams and memorable moments with fellow fans. It’s important to note that Paul held a unique perspective when it came to what he liked. He was not a fan of the New England Patriots or J.J. and this playful difference added a touch for friendly rivalry to his interactions with family.

The family held a special place in Paul’s heart, and he loved them dearly. His joy in life included taking trips to Buzzards Bay, MA and the Cape, creating treasured moments with his loved ones. Paul will be remembered for his dedication, love for family, and the joy he brought to others. He leaves behind a legacy of service, passion, and cherished memories.

He is also survived by his 2 children – Paul A. (Sarah Renner) Robbins of Marrow, OH; Jacqueline S. (John) Strange of Cridersville; 5 grandchildren – Cierra, Makenzie, Samantha, Colton, and Penny; 10 great grandchildren; 2 brothers – John (Lorraine) Robbins of Seekonk, MA; Dennis (Claudine) Robbins of Buzzards Bay, MA; 2 sisters – Kathy Palomba of FL; and Ann Knocker.

He was preceded in death by a great granddaughter – CeCe Harding; 2 brothers – George (Shirley) Robbins; Jason Robbins; 3 sisters – Virginia, Jeanne, and Shirley.
