James “Jarad” Robinson, 39 years of age, of rural Wilcox, died on Saturday, July 16, 2022, at the CHI Health Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney, Nebraska, from a farm accident. Jarad was born on April 7, 1983, in Minden, Nebraska, the eldest of three boys, born to James and Pamela (Schepler) Robinson. Jarad was baptized at St. John’s Catholic Church in Minden, Nebraska and later confirmed at the United Methodist Church in Wilcox. He attended and graduated from Wilcox Public School with the class of 2001. While in high school, he was active with football, wrestling and with the FFA, where he participated in welding and Land Judging. Jarad pursued higher education from Southeast Community College in Beatrice, Nebraska. He returned to the Wilcox area and began farming and ranching. 

On April 29, 2006, Jarad was united in marriage to Lyndsay E. Going at the First United Methodist Church in Holdrege. The couple was blessed with three sons: Ryan, Wyatt, and Westen. Together the family enjoyed showing cattle and working on the farm. 

At a young age, Jarad began farming with his grandpa, Gene Schepler, and at age 14, he began farming with lifelong friends, Scott and Spencer Strong, until his passing. 

Jarad was a member of the Wilcox Volunteer Fire Department, the Wilcox United Methodist Church, and the Wilcox Lions Club. He enjoyed attending and helping his brothers with demo derbies, participating in ranch rodeos, and working with cattle, and horses. Jarad had a welcoming personality, never met a stranger, had a nickname for everyone, and a story to follow!
