The family of Michael Robinson of Asheville, NC is saddened to announce his passing on September 24 at the age of 53 years.
He will be lovingly remembered by his children: Savannah Robinson, Christopher Robinson, Mason Robinson and David Robinson; his mother Patricia Robinson; his siblings Teresa Hernandez and Gregory Robinson as well as numerous relatives and friends.
He will also be dearly missed by his friends at Mtn. Zion Baptist Church and Rogers Park Baptist Church.
He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Mary Anne Harris Robinson; and his father, Pastor Cecil E. Robinson.
Mike was born in Asheville, NC. He lived in Charlotte, NC for several years and moved to Morganton, NC in 2020. He loved and was good at every sport he ever attempted; football, basketball, baseball, wrestling, golf and more. He sang beautifully. He was kind and loving towards everyone and always had a joke to tell. His sense of humor and infectious laugh will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Most importantly, he loved God and his family fiercely.
“Dad had a passion for teaching God’s word and I always admired that about him. He was a good Christian man. He tried his best to always be there for me, and he always reminded me how proud he was of me. He supported all of my dreams and always gave me words of encouragement that will always stay in my heart. He was silly, he’d always crack jokes and make me laugh, and he always knew how to make my day brighter. Most of all, he loved and cared about us deeply and he showed it any way he could. I know that he is still cheering me on from Heaven, until we meet each other again someday.” Savannah Robinson
