Leominster - Leon "Lee" Andrew Robbins, 70, of Leominster passed away peacefully Monday, July 5th at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.
He was born in Leominster, MA on April 26th, 1951, the son of Andrew M. Robbins and Theresa (Brown) Robbins. Growing up in Leominster, Lee graduated from Leominster High School in 1970. After graduation, Lee began a long career with the City of Leominster, Department of Public Works, from which he retired in 2016 as a Foreman after serving 42 years with the department.
Outside of work, Lee was the epitome of a family man. Nothing was more important to him than his beloved family. Lee’s free time was spent carting his son Brandon Robbins back and forth to the Family Martial Arts Center, formerly located in Fitchburg, numerous times a week, while ensuring that he never missed one of Justin Robbins’ many baseball games. Additionally, Lee was known for his love of baseball, having spent many of his earlier years as a strong pitcher for Leominster High School. On top of baseball, though, he was also known for his love of ice cream, and he and his wife Susan (Gagne) Robbins spent much of their time together in the summer enjoying banana and chocolate ice cream at Rota Springs in Sterling.
He is survived by his wife, Susan K. (Gagne) Robbins, two sons, Brandon L. Robbins and Justin M. Robbins, all of Leominster; his two brothers Marc G. Robbins and his wife Robin, originally from Leominster, now residing in Connecticut, and Kevin S. Robbins and his wife Donna of Leominster; his niece and numerous nephews; and his beloved companions Sarah and Lucy. He is predeceased by his father and mother.
