Obituary: Robyn, Bryan Wayne

Age 56

ROBYN, Bryan Wayne Bryan Wayne Robyn was born to European immigrants Jaclyn W. Galer (deceased) of St. Paul, MN and Earl Gary Robyn of Ogilvie, MN in Tacoma, WA on March 22 of 1958.

His early childhood was filled, joyfully serving with his family at McKinley Hill Open Bible Church.

He graduated with honors from Washington High School in Parkland, Washington and went on to attend Eugene Bible College in Eugene, OR where he used his skills for the Lord traveling with a dramatic group called reflection and eventually graduated with a B.A.

in Pastoral Studies.

While attending EBC he met many lifelong friends and his future wife Pamela Kay Foss (deceased).

They were married in Spokane, WA, November 6, 1982 and started their ministry together as associate pastors at Fair Oaks Open Bible in Sacramento, CA.

They continued their ministry as lead pastors at Glad Tidings Worship Centre in Klamath Falls, OR; Praise Chapel in Rupert, ID; Belvidere Open Bible in Belvidere, IL and after the death of his wife Pamela, Bryan moved on to minister at Country Church of the Open Bible in Elk, WA.

After an almost three year battle with pancreatic cancer he went to be with the Lord on October 7th of 2014, peacefully and surrounded by his loving family.

Bryan enjoyed many things but especially spending time with his family and friends, traveling and playing 18 holes on a sunny day.

He will forever be remembered by his many congregations for his famous and hilarious ‘Herald the Angel’ skit that he wrote and performed himself for many years and always brought bouts of laughter to all who witnessed it.

Bryan is Survived by his father, Earl Gary Robyn, his brothers Randall and Mark Robyn, his children, Kelsey, Zachary, Ian and Christopher Robyn and all of his nieces and nephews.

His funeral service will be performed by Gary Hebden and Monte LeLachuer on Sunday October the 12th at 5:00pm at Elk Country Church in Elk, WA and there will be a reception to follow.
