In loving memory of Richard Alan Robertson


Richard Alan Robertson was born Oct. 4, 1957, in Fort Lewis, Washington, to Archie and Marilynn Robertson. On Feb. 28, 2024, at age 66, Richard passed away from a heart attack. Beloved husband, brother, present father, encouraging Popi to his grands, pillar to his family, lifeline for his friends, he lived with plumbline purpose and passion. Always working with excellence, from serving in the Marine Corps, to being a mailman, devoted pastor in church and prisons and finishing well as a truck driver; Rich left life giving imprints on the hearts of his loved ones.

He leaves behind his loving wife, highschool sweetheart, Patti Robertson; children: Jack Holderfield, Adam Robertson, Heidi Seppala, Tiffany Robinson and Tim Olson; grandchildren: Emma, Cadence Alan, Brooklyn, Ezekiel, Asher, Brahm, Rebah  Petra, Kori, Ethan, Wilder and Bristol; and siblings: Rita Allen and Jim Robertson. 

Though he finished his race early, we eagerly anticipate our reunion in heaven.  

We're happy to continue his legacy of loving and coming alongside those who are lost. 

A celebration of life will be held at Heritage Church NW, 8803 NE 76th St., Vancouver, Washington, Saturday, April 27 at 11 a.m. Rich was a pastor for the non-profit organization Tree of Life Recovery Homes. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to:
