"Robbie" Robert K. Finnell

8/19/1968 to 12/30/2021

Our friend, neighbor, husband, father and fellow avid outdoorsmen, Robbie Finnell is now in the care of our Lord God. His sudden passing occurred on December 30th, 2021, and he is dearly missed.

Robbie was born in Chicago of Robert K. Finnell Sr. and Debra Layhew, in 1968. He grew up in the region and graduated from Indiana University, with a degree in business. Known for his tall frame and big laugh, Robbie was a family man. They will remember all the time spent skiing, hiking, trail riding/motocrossing, and just enjoying each other's company. He found his home here in Stites, Idaho, and enjoyed serving his community as a county assessor for the past 7 years.

Robbie is preceded in death by his father, Robert K. Finnell Sr. His grandfather, Kay Robert Finnell, grandmother Pat Finnell. His maternal grandfather Richard Parro, and grandmother Dolores Parro; uncles Richard Parro Jr. and Dennis Parro.

Robbie is survived by his loving wife Susan Finnell, son Zach Phenix, daughter-in-law Rebecca Phenix, granddaughter Remi Phenix, of Idaho; his mother Debra Layhew, of Indiana; his step-mom Judy Finnell, of Illinois; his sister Renee Finnell, and brother Wesley Layhew, of Indiana; his aunt Wendy Finnell, of Arizona; his aunt Joyce Finnell-King and husband Jim King, of Spain; his niece Sierra Layhew and nephew Calvin Layhew, of Indiana; as well as numerous loved cousins.

There will be a memorial service to celebrate Robbie's life on Saturday, February 19th from 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm at Trenary Funeral Home.
