Robin C. Geuy, 60, of Aurora, passed away February 6, 2018.
He was born February 12, 1957 in Riverside, California, the son of Donald and Angela (Dickson) Geuy. On February 14, 1998 he married Janet Geuy, in Hemet, California. They moved to Colorado in August of 2007.
Robin had so many interests and loved so many things in life. He adored his children and grandchildren, and was excited to soon meet his newest grand baby to love. Nothing made Robin happier than playing with his grand babies and hugging, snuggling and teaching them new things. He was overjoyed to have begun teaching Olivia to fish this past summer, sitting and playing Legos with Lucas, or snuggling with Faith. He was immensely proud of his children's accomplishments, was a proud Navy and Army dad to his sons, and proud of his daughter's accomplishments and caring as a nurse. Because of who and how he was, his children became the people they are and are able to do the things they do today.
Holidays were a huge deal to Robin, and he loved to plan his annual outside Christmas lights, and spent months on planning and wrapping special gifts, stocking stuffers for everyone, always made sure that there were Christmas Crackers and that the Christmas Village was set up just so. He also loved Thanksgiving, and liked to help plan, especially because this was not a holiday he had growing up in England, but it reminded him of the English Christmases he had there as a child.
Robin loved movies of all kinds, plays and theatre and music, especially attending concerts at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Fiddlers Green in Denver. He loved camping and hiking and swimming. When camping, he somehow managed to always meet and make friends with everyone there. He loved photography, collecting black and white prints, and was busily researching his dream camera.
Robin loved cooking and thinking up new recipes and dishes to feed his family. Cooking was one of the many ways Robin expressed his great love for his family. He loved fishing, his favorite lakes were Cherry Creek Lake in Aurora, Grand Lake and Steamboat Lake in Steamboat Springs. Robin loved to travel, and was planning to try a Viking Cruise this summer. Robin and Janet took many trips together, including twice to Yellowstone National Park, to Mount Rushmore and many trips to California, Seattle and to British Columbia. Janet and Robin also traveled all over Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Wyoming, South Dakota Minnesota and Kansas, and had planned more trips for this summer.
He was a big motorcycle enthusiast and his Triumph America was his pride and joy, and a trip to the Harley-Davidson factory in Kansas City in 2008 was a dream come true for Robin, along with the Steamboat Arabia Museum there. He had a great love and knowledge of history and could tell stories of Vikings and battles and English history for hours.
Robin was an avid reader, with more than 500 books in his office and more than 1000 on his Nook. He collected swords, daggers and knives, as well as dragons, wooden boxes, interesting figurines and antique items and furniture. He was creative and artistic and had many ideas in progress. He was a longtime World of Warcraft player and had many friends there. Also, he was the reason his son (Greg) became a big fan of World of Warcraft and gaming in general.
He loved all animals and especially loved his dogs and cats. Animals loved him back and a favorite memory was the time he saw a buffalo on a hill in Yellowstone and got out of the car and climbed a hill to get a close up picture, which led to the buffalo coming back down the hill with him and poking its head into the car, which Robin took as a sign that the buffalo wanted to come home with us.
He was a great and active supporter of the Denver Dumb Friends League as well as the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center. Other favorite causes were the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless in Denver and the Valley Restart Shelter in Hemet, CA.
Robin spent more than two decades as a paint manager and color specialist, and his eye for color and his creativity made him the "go to" for paint for customers all over the Denver area and was the "yarn color chooser" for Janet.
More than anything, Robin loved people, and people everywhere, no matter how brief the encounter, loved him back. He was loving, trusting and endlessly patient, compassionate and caring. Life with Robin was the best adventure imaginable, he loved his family without reservation and was greatly loved by his family and wide circle of friends. He left us far too soon, and will be forever missed by all.
Memorial contributions to the Denver Dumb Friends League Animal Shelter in Robin's memory would be greatly appreciated.
A Celebration of Robin's life is being planned for midsummer at Cherry Creek Lake, with the date to be announced later.
Robin is survived by his wife, Janet Geuy; three children, Kevin (Brittany) Cleveland, Alyssa (Corey) Fox-Mudge, and Gregory (Becky) Ducre; seven grandchildren, Connor Cleveland, Olivia Cleveland, Lucas Fox-Mudge, Faith Fox-Mudge, baby-on-the-way Fox-Mudge, Dartanya Severson, and James Cisco; and brother, Tim (Bernadette) Geuy. He is preceded in death by his parents, Donald and Angela Geuy.
