I am deeply saddened to hear about your loss and would like to send my condolences to the family. I fondly recall Mr. Robinson's quick wit, superlative wisdom, and strength of character. He was a positive influence on so many students. The world lost a one-of-a-kind.

One of my all time favorite teachers. He taught me more outside of the text book then inside it. RIP

Donivan and Dehra, I remember your dad very well. He made a positive impact on each of us who had him as a teacher - and even those who weren't. You were truly blessed to have him as a father. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
