Robert Nixon Denton

March 20, 1968 — May 2, 2023

Robb was born in Hamilton Montana, the son of Robert Nixon Denton Sr. (Nick) and Melinda Louise Justus.

He is survived by his parents, Nick and Connie Denton, and Melinda Louise Justus; brother Shawn Denton; nephews Gage and Tyler Denton; and many aunts and uncles who all adored Robbie.

Robb went home to heaven on May 2nd, 2023, to be with the lord, with his loving papa and grandma Denton; grandpa and grandmother Justus; his best friend Tim Miller; and his pup, Dillon. Robb was born with the most beautiful blue eyes and being the first Denton baby, he was doted on by his papa and ma Denton and all of our family. Robbie was amazing young man learned to read at the age of 4 and from there on he read many books which was his favorite past time. And from this he became a wealth of knowledge. You could not find a better partner for trivia games. He was the guy to call if you needed to know what something was, how it worked, what it was used for, or the country of origin. Robbie had many hobbies in his life he loved sailing from a young age, he started building boats from nailing wood crates together and a makeshift mast with some white cloth he got from grandma. At his grandparents' home he would go on to own several sail boats of all sizes. He always loved anything from medieval times he started out building swords from basic material around the shop to making beautiful, collected pieces. He built many suits of armor refining his craft on every new one he started later in life making costumes and attended many medieval gatherings and built a few catapults in his time. As children he loved fireworks. Rob and I spent many exciting 4th of July's with our uncle Dan and aunt Michelle who loved Robbie so much. He loved to build cannons and anything that made a loud bang!! Much to the unhappy neighbors... and a few trees that got cut down with some high speed avocado pits. We will miss those bright eyes after something amazing would blow up. Robbie worked from a young age working in the summers at his dad's construction company to working in telecommunications as a project manager. Of all the jobs he had the most rewarding one was the years he spent as a caregiver for mentally handicapped adults. Later years of life Robb fell in love with German Sheppard's and Belgian Malinois dog breeds often rescuing troubled dogs or older dogs surrendered by their owners as in everything Robb would jump in with both feet spending weekends at competitions with his four-legged children being as proud as any dad could be. He also took up cooking and baking we all experienced his hand at the mixer. He was an awesome cook. Robbie was a kind soul; he never took sides in disagreements between friends or family for fear of hurting one sides' feelings. He was a friend to all, generous to a fault. He was so loved by all that knew him. We heard so many stories about Robb this last week about what he meant to people and how he touched their lives. It has helped the long healing process which will take a lifetime. The world has lost a truly great man. Robbie was a brother, son, best friend. We love you Robbie ...

Robbie was my brother, my partner in crime, my best friend, everything you would want in a brother I will always love you. I will pray every night for you to visit me in my dreams. So, we can spend time together love your brother Shawn.

Fly black bird fly ascend may you find no resistance know that you made such a difference and all you leave behind will live to the end the cycle of suffering goes on but the memories of you stay strong someday I to will fly and find you again.

Papa's favorite verse:

Isaiah 26-3: Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusted in thee.
