Van Michael “TurtleHawk” Robertson –San Angelo, Texas
A Celebration of Life for Michael Robertson, the oldest son of Gaynelle and Frank Robertson. Michael 74, passed away peacefully April 17th surrounded by loved ones. He is survived by his wife Darlene Robertson of 53 beautiful years , his younger brother Mitch Robertson and wife Phyllis, his Brother in Law, or adopted brother as he would say, Perry Kiser and Wife Ginny. He is also survived by his four Daughters; Charla Robertson, Amy Marsden and husband Thomas, Amber Price, and Courtney Adams and her husband Mark. He is also survived by his 9 grandchildren whom of which he all loved dearly. As well as, the many adopted family members and grandchildren who loved him as their own.
In his 74 years of life he traveled and saw many things from driving a truck to working out of state. He loved to explore and he loved to feel close to the world and nature. He raised chickens and had made many friends along the way selling eggs. He collected an average of 35-44 eggs a day, he sold 10 dozen regularly to a family he became very close with. He had a big heart and loved to see their smiles when he delivered them. Michael was also known for his ability to grow the biggest and most plentiful gardens. His wife and he both had a love for working in the yard and gardening and were always finding ways to improve their home and host the family gatherings.
Michael did many things in his life from working as the Director of the grounds at Marshall Space Center -NASA in Huntsville Alabama, He was a truck driver for Metro delivery in Florida as well as a driver for Red Ball in Abilene, a family owned business. After moving to Austin with his family he then worked as a Manager for Utility Revenue Management-UMR with her brother Mitch. During that time in which he also delivered newspapers with his family in Austin for the duration of 20 years. His family settled in San Angelo, Texas where he eventually retired from URM and spent his last years with family and friends.
He was very involved in his history and spent the last 25 years attending Pow-Wows and Gatherings of the Nations. He had a strong connection to Mother Nature and was known all around by his Cherokee name, TurtleHawk. Anyone who knew him knew his love for his history and past. He also had a strong connection with the buffalo, one of his favorite things to do was to go on drives with his wife to the State Park and try to catch them at the fence and talk to them.
Michael will be missed by all who knew him but, if you knew him then you know he is not gone. Michael left so many memories and endless stories behind that will be shared with generations. He made many friends in his life and was loved by so many.
Memorial services will be held at a later date when family and friends can travel.
