Mark Leighton Robinson
August 1927 – January 2016
Mark Leighton Robinson, age 88, passed away at his home in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Prior to moving to Albuquerque in 2009, Mark had resided in Roswell for approximately 50 years. Mark will be remembered for his tender devotion to Jean Ries Robinson, his wife of more than 60 years as well as his love for his family. Mark founded Robinson Resource Development Company and enjoyed a lifelong passion as a petroleum geologist. He enjoyed traveling and was an avid reader of history. His compassion for others was often over shadowed by his humility. He was known for his remarkable and playful sense of humor. The lights of his life were his wife, children and grandchildren. He will be missed.
