Ray Edward Robinson

Ray Edward Robinson

Ray Edward Robinson, 75, of Hendersonville went home to be with the Lord and his loved ones who had already passed on Tuesday, June 5, 2018. Following a cancer diagnosis in February, he fought bravely for as long as he could for the remaining months of his life.

A native of Madison County, he was a son of the late Marion Wilson and Mary McIntosh Robinson. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Harold “Spooks” Robinson; sisters, Bertha Wilkie and Doris Bradshaw; and an infant brother.

Moving to Henderson County at a young age, Ray worked at Berkeley Mills for over 30 years before retiring as a supervisor. He was a member of Naples Baptist Church and enjoyed golfing or fishing, when he was able, but his world revolved around his family, especially his grandchildren; he was so proud of them.

He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Dolly “Louise” Robinson; sons, Jeff Robinson (Karen) and Warren Robinson (Tonya); grandchildren, Jonathan Robinson (Melissa), Lareshia “Larri” Robinson, and CJ Robinson; brothers, Dewey Robinson (Brenda) and Dolph Robinson (Theda); and sisters, Joyce Ann Solesbee and Lois Welch (Rick).
