Obituary

Billy G. Robertson, age 89, of Auburn passed on Tuesday, April 26, 2022 at Stillwater Hospice Home in Fort Wayne.  Bill is survived by his devoted wife of 67 years, Betty, who resides in Auburn, their daughter C. Janise Cobbs of Auburn and their son, Lindon and his wife Deborah of Andover, Massachusetts.  Bill was blessed with five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. 

His five grandchildren and their spouses include Janelle E. and Justin M. Nolan, Matthew L. Cobbs and fiancée Courtney L. Zapf, Benjamin and Ruth Robertson, Luke and Cinthia Robertson, and Hannah Robertson and fiancé Adam Krulewicz.  His six great grandchildren include Elijah M. Nolan, Eve J. Nolan, Elena A. Nolan, Isaac G. Robertson, Dorothy R. Robertson and Suzanna H. Robertson.

Bill was born on October 19, 1932 in Bradford, Arkansas to Orville W. and Lona L. (Tanner) Robertson. Bill remained close to his family roots in Bradford and enjoyed visiting most every year for his high school reunion and the hometown festival which also provided for a frequent reunion with his siblings and extended family.  Bill is survived by four siblings including his sisters Wanda Lee Yarbarough and Norma B. Harmon, and brother Rodger D. (Sandra) Robertson, all of Bradford, Arkansas, and brother James E. (Louise) Robertson of Eldon, Missouri.  He has many loving in-laws, nieces, nephews and extended family that will miss him.  Bill was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, O. Leon Robertson and Junior R. Robertson, and one sister, Paulina.

Bill honorably served his country in the United States Army during the Korean War and then settled in Michigan where he married Betty L. Bowling on July 2, 1955.  He had a long career in data processing, working on some of the earliest mainframe computers.  He moved the family to Auburn in 1969 to join Cooper Tire as a systems analyst and later worked for Messenger Corporation as a data processing manager.  In the final years of his career, he was a consultant and he and Betty moved to various areas of the country. 

In 2003 Bill and Betty retired to Auburn where they have resided since.  Bill had a lifelong affiliation with the Church of Christ and served as treasurer for the church at various times.  He enjoyed fishing, bowling, golf, woodworking and gardening.  In recent years he became an avid puzzler, working on word searches, sudoku, and jigsaw puzzles sometimes up to 2000 pieces.  But his favorite, number one activity was always spending time with his family.
