Carroll Robinson

Nov.27, 1937 - June 19, 2014

Carroll N. Robinson passed away Thursday at his home surrounded by his family, dog, and with his radio playing.

He was born on Nov. 27, 1937, to Richard (Newt) and Maude (Veale) Robinson. He married Nancy Kay (Lents) Leonard on August 23, 1958. She survives him. He was the second child of Maude and Newt. His older brother Richard Robinson (Phyllis); sisters, Donna Lunsford (Kenny) and Linda Jett (Chuck) survive. He is preceded in death by his brother, William (Bill) Robinson (Ruth).

He was a hard worker his entire life until illness struck. As a child he helped his father shoveling and delivering coal. As a teen, he set bowling pins at the bowling alley. He went on to work for William’s Service Station, Koleman’s Motor Supply and retired from Hoover Precision after 39 years, where he was a maintenance supervisor. His employment at Hoover allowed him to travel the world, including the east coast, Mexico and Japan.

Carroll and Nancy had three children, all of which survive: Dean Robinson (Cheryl); Shannon Robinson Erman (Brad) and Angela “Sam” Quast (Byron). He had five grandchildren, all of which he adored: Joseph Robinson, Thomas Quast, Elise Erman, Alison Erman and Casey Quast. He also is survived by three great-grandchildren.

He loved his family, hunting, fishing and working in stained glass. Pleasant Hill Church is decorated with some of his finest stained glass pieces. He was a river rat. Throughout his illness, he never lost his sense of humor or love for his family. He was a heck of mechanic, if you could break, he could fix it. He can never be replaced and his family already misses him so.

Services will be private at Gill’s Funeral Home.
