Red Robinson Obituary, Death – “With deep sadness and broken hearts, we bring the news that our beloved Dad, Red Robinson, passed away this morning at 8:15am after a brief illness,” Kellie and Sheri Robinson wrote in a statement. “With deep sadness and broken hearts, we bring the news that our beloved Dad, Red Robinson, passed away.” We are very thankful that we were able to be there with him during his final moments, and the fact that his brother Bill was there only served to make the experience that much more poignant.
The vast majority of people knew our father in one of his many guises, including as a rock-and-roll DJ, as a TV personality, as the head of an advertising agency, as a spokesperson, and for the philanthropic work that he conducted. In many ways, he was a larger-than-life person; but, to us, he will always be remembered as a loving father and grandfather, a doting husband to our late mother Carole, and a true friend to all of his acquaintances. He was a larger-than-life figure in many ways; however, to us, he will always be remembered as a treasured father and grandpa.
Because Red passed away, a huge hole has been left in our lives, as well as in the lives of everyone else he had an influence on in the industries of radio, television, music, and entertainment. This loss has left a significant emptiness in our lives and in the lives of everyone else in these professions. We will soon be announcing a celebration of his wonderful life, and in the meanwhile, we welcome you to share your memories of him here on Facebook. We will soon be announcing a celebration of his incredible life.
One of Dad’s all-time favorite songs by Elvis Presley is called “If I Can Dream,” and its lyrics go as follows: “While I can think, while I can talk, while I can stand, while I can walk… while I can dream, oh, please let my dream come true… right now.” We are unable to think of a more appropriate way to summarize Dad’s life than these lyrics.
