July 28, 1932 ~ February 9, 2010
The world was blessed with the birth of a baby boy destined to be a courageous, innovative and loyal man who would impart onto this world a lasting legacy. Isaiah Robinson was born July 28, 1932 to Willie Robinson and Nobi Lee Johnson-Robinson in Analusia, Alabama. Despite the passing of his mother at an early age, Isaiah would press on toward the goals he set for his life. He completed his education and honorably served his country in the United States Army for a full term. Upon moving to Cincinnati, Ohio he met and married in his eyes "the prettiest woman in town" Ann Walton-Robinson in 1951. To this union they produced 5 children: Awyen Robinson, Stephanie Robinson, Drexel Robinson, Dwayne Robinson, and Sheila Robinson. After starting a family his courageous spirit lead him further west to Los Angeles, CA in pursuit of a better life for him and his family. His courageous spirit blended with his innovative mind equipped him to start his own brick laying business. Isaiah's loyalty stretched far and wide. He encouraged family and friends to venture west and provided opportunities for employment. At the end of his working career he retired from McDonald Douglas Aircraft with years of service.
Proverbs 27:19 reads as water reflects a man's face the heart reflects the man. Isaiah truly loved his family; this love extended beyond to his granddaughter, Nyora Higgs who he raised along with Ann Robinson as their own. He enjoyed many trips to lakes and beaches where he fished with his sons for hours and later would come home and burn. Isaiah had a long list of hobbies and interest such as golfing, cooking and watching television especially the News, the National Geographic, History Channel and we must not forget the Gospel station. However, one thing that stands out the most is how animals that were considered pets such as roosters, chickens somehow became dinner. We still wonder what really happened to Dwayne's snake.
Throughout his life Isaiah ministered to others in many capacities. He was a husband, a father, provider, protector, and friend, man of God and member of Westminster Presbyterian Church. He accepted Christ at an early age as his personal Savior and as an older man he developed a personal relationship with Christ. This relationship helped him to minister to others for their salvation. Although he will be greatly missed, we know that he is in Glory with Christ Jesus. He is preceded in glory by his parents Willie Robinson, Sr., Nobi Lee Johnson-Robinson and his brother Willie Robinson, Jr. He is survived on earth by his wife Ann Robinson and their children Awyen Robinson, Stephanie Suthers, Drexel Robinson, Dwayne Robinson, and Sheila Clayborn. As well as his grandchildren Nyora Higgs, Donovan Suthers, LaVonnt Clayborn, Armon Clayborn and Lunden Clayborn; and his siblings Louis Robinson, Catherine Feagin, Jackie Robinson, Sr. and Ethel Belle Robinson as well as many extended family and a host of friends, which he loved dearly.
