Charles Edward Robinson passed away on September 8, 2017 at the age of 84. He was born on November 26, 1932 in Putnam County, Tennessee to Cordell Robinson and Eva (Mathis) Robinson. Charles married the love of his life, Ann Williams, on August 11, 1962 in Crossett, Arkansas. He will be remembered as a hard-working father who took great pride in providing for his family. He served a term in the Army as a paratrooper. After his service, he joined his father as a Millwright. He was quite mischievous in his youth and loved sharing his adventures. Growing up in Detroit, he would grab onto the bumper of passing cars on snowy nights and “ski” through the neighborhood with his friends. Charles was well-known for his dry sense of humor and witty sayings such as, “I’m all messed up this morning because when I got up, I put my socks on the wrong feet.” He loved spending time with his family including Sunday dinner at his mom’s house when his children were young and holiday celebrations with his grandchildren. In his retirement years, Charles developed a love for gardening and had quite the green thumb. He was loved dearly. He is missed greatly by all who knew and loved him.
Charles was deeply missed the last 5 years by his wife, Ann Robinson; his children, Debbie (Carl) Flemming, Sandy (Rob) Curtis; sibling, Ann (Bill) McAdoo; grandchildren, Jon (Amber) Edge, Jacob Curtis, Ethan Curtis; great-grandchildren, Olivia Edge, Preston Edge. He was preceded in death by his parents, Cordell and Eva Robinson; brother-in-law, Bill McAdoo; and grandson, Michael Edge.
Charles’s family and friends will gather Saturday, April 1, 2023 from 10:00am – 11:00 am at Westbrook Funeral Home in Hazen Arkansas. His Community Farewell will follow at 11:00 am.
