My beloved husband, Pastor Bob, went to be with the Lord on June 29, 2012.
He will be missed so much by wife, Joann Robinson; his children; and all the friends and parishes he served until the end.
Bob was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, on April 6, 1932, and was one of seven children of Clarence Stephen and Dorothy Robinson. Bob is preceded in death by his parents and his brothers Jack and Jerry.
