Robin Burnett, 62, of Brady, Nebraska, passed away on June 22, 2023 at Great Plains Health in North Platte, NE.
Robin was born in Riverton, WY. He spent all 13 school years attending Brady Public Schools and graduated in 1979. The morning after he graduated he drove up and down the railroad tracks until he landed a job with the Union Pacific Railroad. His job with the railroad led him to several different locations. He worked for the UPRR for 24 years in the welding department.
Family was important to Robin, as were the people he shared his life with in his younger days. Home and the lake were his happy places, even if he didn't see you he talked about all his friends like it was yesterday. Anytime he could have a boat on the water he was full of life and laughter. He enjoyed decorating with old items that he would refurbish into amazing pieces. He loved Nebraska football and NFL football, especially the Denver Broncos. He also loved to garden. If you were part of Robin's life, and lived any part of it with him he would always remember stories in great detail with many laughs. He was also a die-hard John Wayne fan.
He is survived by his sister, Deborah Owens of Brady NE; niece, Rene' (Mark) Barner of Brady, NE; great niece, Madison Barner of Brady, NE and great niece, Dusk Sabin of Lincoln, NE. Robin was preceded in death by his parents, Bernice (Nadine) Burnett and William Burnett, his sister Bobbie Brown, and his brother Robert King.
Memorials may be given to Brady Fire Department. Memorials can be sent to directly to the Brady Fire Department at 207 East Commercial Street, Brady, NE, 69123.
