James Richard Robison of Eureka, Kasnas passed away on November 11, 2022 at his home in Eureka at the age of 80.  He was born on October 18, 1942 in Wichita, Kansas, the son of Richard Charles "Dick" and Mary Irene (Ditty) Robison.

Jim was raised in Virgil, Kansas and graduated from Virgil High School with the Class of 1960.  He then attended college in Emporia, Kansas, graduating with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Biology and minoring in Chemistry.  On August 14, 1964, Jim was united in marriage to Barbara Lindamood.  To this union, one daughter was born.  This marriage would later end in divorce.

Jim began working for the Kanas Department of Health in Topeka, Kansas.  He was there for several years before purchasing farmland near Virgil where the family returned in 1973 as Jim farmed and ranched.  On February 14, 2014, Jim was united in marriage to Kathy (Haney) Brown in Grenola, Kansas.  He eventually retired from farming but continued to own cattle until the end of his life.

Jim is survived by his wife, Kathy of the home; his daughter, Dana Lynn (Shawn) Mills, dual residents of rural Moline and Eureka, Kansas; two grandchildren, Thomas James "T.J." Mills and Emery Pyke Mills; and two siblings.  He was preceded in death by his parents.

A private graveside service will take place at Greenwood Cemetery in Eureka, Kansas at a later date.  Cremation has been effected.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made to Good Shepherd Hospice or to Eureka U.S.D. #389 for the School Farm Project.  Contributions may be sent in care of Koup Family Funeral Home, P.O.
