Edward Dolton Robey died Tuesday, January 22, 2019. He was born November 19, 1928, in Graves, Kentucky, the son of George Edward and Anna Lucille (Williams) Robey. Dolton was the son of a Baptist pastor and moved to different locations during his childhood.

He graduated from Protection High School in Protection, Kansas, and moved with his family to Ulysses, Kansas, prior to entering the military. This is where he met Bennie Jean Mead and married her on December 18, 1949. They had three daughters, Cheryl Ann, Carol Beth, and Sheila Jean. Bennie Jean preceded him in death in 1998 and Carol Beth in 1966.

He enlisted in the Navy on March 21, 1949, and was a 2nd Class Aviation Mechanist Mate. He served in the Navy, during the Korean War until February 1953, at which time he returned to Ulysses to raise his family. He worked for Mobil Oil Corporation for around 35 years retiring in 1990.

On October 28, 1999, he married Ida Mae Webster Goeller, his high school sweetheart, and moved to Pratt, Kansas, where he remained until 2012, when he returned to Ulysses. She preceded him in death in 2011.

Dolton was a long-time member of the First Baptist Church in Ulysses, where he served many years as an ordained deacon and an adult Sunday School teacher. His faith never wavered through trials but became stronger and he served the Lord with gladness.

Dolton is survived by his children, Cheryl (Robey) Fowler and husband Gary, Sheila (Robey) Koop and husband Ivan all of Ulysses; two step-children, Gary Goeller and wife Deborah, and Barbara Rush all of Kanapolis; grandchildren, Gavin Fowler of Ulysses, Angela (Fowler) Merritt and husband Maurice of Owasso, Oklahoma, Erica (Koop) Boone and husband Joseph of Garden City, and Stephanie Koop of Mesa, Arizona; step-grandchildren, Casey Svoboda of Council Bluff, Iowa, Emily Svoboda of Pratt, and Christopher Svoboda of Kanopolis; along with nine great-grandchildren; sister, Phyllis Thomason; four nieces, one nephew; and Ulysses First Baptist Church family and friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents; three brothers, Jimmy, Elsie, and Carl; wife Bennie Jean; daughter, Carol Beth; and wife, Ida Mae

So sorry for the loss of your family member and friend.
We have much to look forward to. In Revelation 21:4 the Bible tells us " And he will wipe our every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away".

I haven't seen your father in many years, but I remember him as a child growing up in the church as a gentle, kind, obviously Christian man. My condolences, as I know you will miss him terribly, but also am sure you will be comforted knowing he is basking in the glory of our Heavenly Father and rejoicing being reunited with those that have gone before him. Prayers...
