Hiram Wayne “Hie” Robison

Hiram Wayne “Hie” Robison, 53, of Perryton, Texas, passed away surrounded by his loving family on June 14, 2024.  He was born March 4, 1971, in Amarillo, to Lynn Robison and Brenda Hustead.

A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, June 22, 2024, at Community Worship Center, 2210 SW 15th Ave, Perryton, Texas.

Hiram graduated from Perryton High School in May 1991. He then joined the Army and was stationed in Berlin Germany. On December 7, 1991, he married Melea Smith and in February she was able to join him in Berlin. In March of 1993 their lives were blessed with the birth of their first daughter Taryn. Hie worked as a mechanic in the Army keeping all the things in the motor pool running. There were lifetime friendships made there that became family. After three years in Berlin Germany, Hiram was stationed in Ft. Hood Texas. The second Robison girl was a month away from being born. In August of 1994 Nikki made her arrival and Hie was the proudest Daddy in the world to two beautiful daughters, he loved them with every fiber of his being. 

After four years of service, he moved his family to Perryton Texas. He worked for Schlumberger for 18 years. Due to illness from Multiple Sclerosis, he was left with no choice but to quit working. He spent 10 years at home being a great Pawpaw until his body required more care. He moved to Ussery Roan Veterans Home in Amarillo, Texas and made lots of friends, especially his best buddy there, Tom Jones. This was his home for three years where he brightened everyone’s lives. When Hie was 53 years old, after 31 years of battling MS, he went to be with Jesus. 

Hie loved spending time with friends and family any chance he got. He loved giving his grandbabies, or anyone who would fit on his scooter, a ride as fast as it would go. Hie loved grilling and making brownies for his grandbabies. Hie loved hunting, shooting guns, fishing, going to the mountains, and really anything outdoors. Hie loved a lot of things, but one thing he didn’t like was the word “can’t.” Hiram’s saying was “Can’t never did nothing for nobody,” and he sure lived his life that way. You would never find him feeling sorry for himself or giving up. Oh, and one more thing Hiram loved his football, HOW ‘BOUT THEM COWBOYS!!!!

Hiram was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Floyd and Melba Hustead, his paternal grandparents L.D., and Mary Robison, and his sister Cindy McLerran. 

Hiram is survived by his wife Melea Robison; his two daughters Taryn Lizardo and her husband Teto, and Nikki Evans and her husband Joseph; his three grandsons Kadeias Nelson, Grason Lizardo, and Reagan Nelson; and his two granddaughters Rhylin Evans and Bexleigh Evans; his mother Brenda Dunn and husband James; his father Lynn Robison and wife Nora; his brothers, Curtis Robison and wife Stacie, and Billy Robison and wife Kay Ann, and his sister Sheree Evans and husband Brandon. 



  1. Curtis Robison

    My big brother was a breath of fresh air to those who knew and loved him. I don’t believe anyone who truly knew Hie could say that they knew a person who had a bigger heart than his. Hie was my big brother by 3 years and know that if I had two lifetimes on this earth, I could never overshadow the love and light in his heart that he had for his family and friends.
    I am going to miss you Hie and one day you and I will climb back in that boat and go fishing together again.

    One memory I had with Hiram was when my dad Cory and me loved to go fishing at lake fryer with him.

  5. Rhonda Thomas

    I was blessed to have known Hie in his early military days. You and Melea could make a boring room sparkle with your wit and charm. You guys would watch and love my dog “George” just like he was your own pup. The last time we saw you was almost 10 yrs ago. I’m so glad we drove through Texas and visited with the family. Hie, I was truly lucky to have known you and I’ll never forget you man. Until we meet again on that beautiful shore. Melea, Nikki, Taryn and the rest of the family God gave y’all a good man! Love and prayers for strength and comfort.

    He was a gift from God for ussery. Always smiling no matter how he felt always ask how we were doing. It was a great honor and pleasure to have known Hiram. He will be truly missed.

  7. John D Ousley

    Hiram was one of the best guys anyone could ever know. Always enjoyed working side by side with you whether we were fracking, cementing or acidizing.

  8. Cowboy

    I searched the world over, Hie, and then you met Jesus, and you was gone.
    Gonna miss you buddy.

  9. Aidina Ousley

    My best memory I have of Hiram was his kindness and that smile. He always had a big smile on his face.

  10. Gabi Haferburg

    Hie and Melea have always been some of my closest friends. During their stay in Germany we spend most every day together. Hie was a gem. Always bright and funny! A wonderful husband and father. We became family even with an ocean apart. Hie will always be close to my heart. Until we meet again my friend.

  11. Grecia Herrera

    I not only knew him as a little girl because of my parents JD and Aidina, I also had the pleasure of caring for him at our Amarillo VA. I saw him in his sick moments and his strong moments. One thing I can tell you is this man right here always smiled, Does not matter how ill he felt, he came onto our floor with a smile that was contagious. He Always thanked any nurse who cared for him and like the obituary said above, he never felt sorry for himself. As hard as it is for many to let him go and be with our lord, Mr. Robison was ready. He fought a hard battle and did it with dignity. It was a pleasure taking care of you these last few years. I appreciate the friendship you gave my family. Rest well soldier and thank you for your service and our freedom.

  12. Diane Lewis

  13. Tim Hargues

    In are Dowell days we was going to a frac job over by Morse and the dip in the road Hie forgot to slow down and when hit it we emptied the whole connection box we laughed and laughed then spent 30 minutes picking it all up

  14. Erik Weekley

    I only got to work with Hiram for 2 months , the good heart and spirit he had and shown every job we went on was great.
    I enjoyed those jobs.

  15. Mandy

    Hie had a kindness that was un matched, A heart of gold and a smile that could light up the world. He was one of a kind, cuz you truly shined a light on every one you ever met, I love you and enjoy your Wahoo games with Mama❤️❤️

  16. Brittany

    My favorite memory of that really sweet man who always had a smile on his face is when I was sitting with him one summer. He all of a sudden got a thought about an old Dallas cowboy player and wanted to know who it was because he could not think of his name. After 20 minutes of going back and forth and arguing, I asked him what he wanted me to do and he said “I just want you to find his name” so I googled, and called every guy in my phone that I could think of. We found out who it was but then we both forgot an hour later.

  17. Elnita Ridgway

    Hie was such a special young man to all of us who knew him at Ussery Roan Veterans Home. Over the last few days I have heard so many say what a sweet man Hie was, always happy, always smiling and always waving! Our family loved Hie. He certainly blessed our hearts in so many ways!
    Love and prayers to all the family!

  18. Bill Little

    Absolutely one of the kindest humans I’ve ever known. Never one to shirk a task and I believe that man would do any job anyone said he couldn’t. And do it with a smile on his face. This world is a worse place without him and Heaven just got a lot better.

  19. Deborah Anderson

    Hiram always had a smile and joke when he would come into the drivers license office. He was the trainer for those Slumberger guys. He would hang out with Dorothy and I while they were testing. We had some pretty good conversations. Always loved seeing him. He will be missed. 🙏🏻🙏🏻

  20. Jason Connell

    Wow a soul departed to young and gone to soon my dad had the honor of working alongside this man and I later on joined up with Schlumberger in 08 and he was assigned as my driver trainer and also my field trainer the stories I heard and learned first hand from this man stood larger than life in his teachings and his larger than life presence in the office and field a man I will never forget thank you Hiram for all the time spent teaching this old worm what it was all about miss you already buddy fly high and rest in peace bud.

  21. Judy Collins

    It was evident when you met or talked with Hie that he loved the Lord, and that he loved to attend church and worship the Lord. He had such a sweet spirit. Though his physical body was failing, he knew absolutely nothing could separate him from the love of God. No doubt he is home with Jesus now, completely healed and whole.
    Prayers of comfort for all of his family.🙏❤️

  22. Beth West

    My favorite memory is when malea and hiram came to visit in nocona.
    Hiram was quite the fisherman and the sweetest guy such a positive attitude. My mom had special names for everyone and for Hiram it was Hidie Wayne lol.
    She loved him dearly, now they are together talking old times and both are as healthy as can be with no pain.

    BROTHER from another mother. Hie and I met in the early 80’s when I moved back to Perryton. We lived out East of town and he lived down the road. We met on the yellow bus going and coming from school. We were instant friends. Like minded in so many ways. His best attributes were his smile and kindness. Nothing really ever brought him down, truly a gift from God. He’d give you his shirt off his back no questions asked. Patiences was another, he and I would go fishing and he was a machine. Saturday would roll around and after work him and I would load the poles and boxes and hit the back roads to the lake looking for roadkill rabbits for bait. He’d sit and fish all night, I’d finally get bored and go to bed. You’d hear him wee hours of the morning finally going to his tent. The last time we fished together was in Colo. and he slayed the trout. I’ll never forget the look on his face every time he’d pull one in. He was in heaven. We’re going to miss him tremendously, but he’s healed now and living it up with family and friends. This isn’t goodbye brother but rather see you soon. God Bless Hie and his family.

  24. Brenton Dearing

    What beautiful words & tributes have already been written about Hie by everyone!

    The Light of Christ shined extra brightly through you, Hie which is a testament of who you were as a man of God. Inspiring the radiance you shared & the love of family you modeled!

  25. Billy Robison

    Growing up with Hie, I always looked up to him as a role model. Taking over his rodeo gear and truck after he went into the Army and traveling the circuit, he was always in my mind and heart. Now him and Eric Short are back together riding and fishing. Miss and love you big brother!

  26. Sarah Smith

    Hiram and Melea were a big influence in my life through middle school and the rest of my life. They always treated me like another one of their kids and I couldn’t be more grateful to call Hie a part of my family. Whenever I think of him, I can’t help but think of what a good father and husband he has always been. He loved everyone and his family with every ounce in him.
