Robert ‘Robby’ Dale Hallford

Robert ‘Robby’ Dale Hallford, 67, of Lubbock, passed away Monday, May 25, 2020. 
He was born April 19, 1953, in Abilene, to the late Robert and Laura Thornton Hallford. 
Robby graduated from Coronado High School. 
He worked as a lineman for more than 36 years for LP&L and SPS before retiring from Xcel Energy in 2017. 
Robby loved what he did and considered it a way of life, not just a job. 
He made many lifelong friends with fellow coworkers and enjoyed hunting, fishing, Nascar races, and watching the Texas Rangers with them. 
Robby enjoyed spending time with his family making memories boating on the lake, floating on the river and watching the grandchildren play sports. 
He was a quiet man with a kind, gentle spirit and was methodical in his work, his day to day routine, and his motto was ‘be prepared’. 
Robby was someone you could always count on, whether with work or with friends and family. 
His legacy will be, there is hope that tomorrow will be a better day and to never give up no matter what life deals you. 
He is an inspiration to all who watched him battle ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). He never complained about the affliction of the disease but took one day at a time.
Those left to cherish are his children: Jami Winfield and husband, Matt, of Lubbock and Staci Rampy and husband, Jarrod, of Porter, Texas; seven grandchildren: Gavin, Gage, Gracin and Grey Rampy and Cole, Reese and Weston Winfield; his children’s mother, Diane Hallford; siblings: Stephanie Roden and husband, Rick, of Canyon and their children, Rhett and Ryne; Curtis Osment and wife, Allison Ridley of Lubbock and children, Kayla and Alan Johnson and Kassandra Osment; and Jeff Hallford and wife, Lori, of Flower Mound, Texas.
A visitation will be held from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. with family receiving friends from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. Thursday, May 28, at Combest Family Memorial Chapel. 
A celebration of life will be held at 11 a.m. Friday. May 29, at Aldersgate Methodist Church with burial to follow at Peaceful Gardens Memorial Park.
