Christopher T. Robison, 49, of Marion, passed away on Friday, February 2, as a result of a crane accident at the Manitowoc Plant in Shady Grove. Born on June 5, 1968 in Hagertown, MD, he was the son of Ronald Robison of Marion, and Bonnie Diehl Robison of Chambersburg.
A 1986 graduate of Chambersburg Area Senior High School, Chris had been employed at Manitowoc for almost 30 years, most recently in the Research and Development Division. He was an avid car enthusiast, and enjoyed working on cars and trucks of all kinds, especially classics.
Aside from his parents, he is survived by his loving wife, Tracy Arnold Robison, whom he married on April 8, 1989; and their daughter, Bethany N. Robison, whom he was so proud of for going to college. He was eagerly looking forward to seeing her graduate with her biology degree in the spring from York College. He cherished the times spent with his family, and he will be loved and missed by many, including his cat “Mozzy,” who only likes men.
