Remembering Shane

with Shane and Elaine March 2010
My cousin Shane and I were the same age. The last time I saw him was five years ago. I didn’t realize then that it really would be the last time. Shane was a good guy. Everyone in our family was fond of him and deeply saddened when they heard the news of his passing. I think the tragedy of his death hit home to many of us and made us really see how fleeting and precious life is and how it can be taken away when you least expect it. Personally it has made me want to grab on to loved ones and be eternally thankful for each day I have to spend with them.

Remembering Spokane District 10 Firefighter Shane Robins

Spokane County firefighter dies in snorkeling accident 
KREM Staff, KREM.com9:13 p.m. PST February 24, 2015

SPOKANE, Wash. – Spokane County Fire District 10 will hold a ceremony Wednesday morning to bring the remains of a fallen firefighter home to Spokane. The event will start the last leg of Shane Robins' trip home. Robins died on February 16 in a snorkeling accident in Maui while vacationing with his wife.

Two firefighters flew to Maui, Hawaii to escort Shane's ashes home to his family. The Alaska Airlines plane carrying Shane's ashes and his escorts will land around 9:30 a.m. and will be greeted by family members and a large contingent of firefighters.

The family and escort will then travel to Robins' home on a fire engine. The route will take a small procession into Airway Heights and then past Station 10-5.

A regular memorial service will be held Saturday at the Linwood Seventh Day Adventist Church in north Spokane. Donations to support the Robins family can be made to the Sunset Volunteer Firefighter's Association at:

929 S Garfield Rd. Airway Heights, WA 99001
