October 20, 1946 – February 27, 2020
ROBINSON, RANDALL (RANDY), 73, recently passed away unexpectedly at his residence in Needham. Born and raised in Fall River, he was the son of the late Rudolph and Dorothy (Braudy) Robinson.
Dr. Robinson was a clinical psychologist and the owner and operator of his own private practice, Resource Counseling Associates, in Walpole for over thirty years. He previously served as a school psychologist in Newton and Millis.
An avid sailor, Randy was a longtime member of the Woods Hole Yacht Club, and passed on his love of sailing to his children. He enjoyed spending time on Martha’s Vineyard and traveling to Saint Martin. In his younger years, Randy worked as a camp counselor, providing mentoring and teaching sailing.
Randy loved to laugh and to make others laugh. He would tell jokes and stories to anyone that would listen. He always sought to create a personal connection with others and was generous with his time and advice.
He is survived by his children Seth Robinson and his wife Katherine, of Lakeville, Laura Nolan and her husband Cory, of Holliston, and Brett Robinson and his wife Sarah, of Port Hood, Nova Scotia; brother, Russell Robinson and his wife Joyce; and niece, Paige Robinson. Randy will be especially missed by his grandchildren, by whom he was fondly known as “Pop Pop”. Being a grandfather and a father was the absolute highlight of his life.

I wish I had the words to say how I'm feeling but I just don't. Dr. Robinson has been such a part of our life for the past few years. He worked with both of my children as well as myself. His quirky humor and high intelligence was exactly what we needed. His passing has left such a hole for so many people. He will be missed.

My incredible therapist - learned so much from him, saved my life numerous times, especially during the darkest times during the divorce when I was being so torn down and ripped apart.
Will be greatly missed - he always had my back.

I will always remember Dr. Robinson. I started seeing him as an adolescent due to my ADHD. This was way back when his office was next to the Aggie. I didn't talk much back than but he always let me win when we played cards or boardgames!
Fast forward 27 years. For the past year I started seeing him again. He always connected with me as an equal and his stories and antidotes were always great and sometimes quirky, and always appreciated. He always made me feel comfortable and capable to express anything with him. He was more than my doctor, he was my friend. I'm still in shock that he is no longer with us physically. And I am saddened by the passing of a great doctor, a great friend, a great family man and a great human being.
I send my deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones.
He will be missed by all.
