October 10, 1963 ~ August 25, 2019
Timothy Kimble Robinson was born in Los Angeles, CA to Betty Jean Robinson and Calvin Robinson on October 10,1963. His parents settled in Los Angeles after having met in the Marines, marrying, and producing two sons. Timothy was the youngest. He attended Queen Anne Elementary School, John Burroughs Middle School, and Los Angeles High School. He enjoyed playing sports and often reminisced about hitting a home run and accidentally cracking his father’s windshield with a baseball.
Timothy first met Judith in 1987 where they formed a bond working in the retail and textile industry together. This was the beginning of a beautiful friendship that later blossomed into a lifetime of memories. They married and from this union produced two daughters Laetitia and ShakiraRobinson.
Timothy was a remarkably gifted driver. He spent most of his career as a class A commercial truck driver transporting produce and goods across the country. He prided himself in his skills and would often say “There isn’t anything I cannot drive!”. He was especially excited to establish his own transportation business after buying his first truck in 2005. The following year TJ Robinson Trucking was incorporated. He took pride in mastering transportation laws and being able to drive under any condition. His fondest memory was visiting family and friends while taking his mother over the road with him.
He was a person of great insight, unshakable, determined, straight forward, and jovial. He often spoke about his goals, ambitions, and motivation to create a platform for the future generation to build on. Above all, Timothy believed in the value of family. He was especially close and looked up to his older brother Calvin. He spoke fondly of all the childhood memories they shared, including a trip to Disneyland to see the Gap Band with their father.
Timothy is survived by his wife, Judith; his daughters Laetitia, Shakira, and Leah; his brothers Byron and Calvin; his sister in law Cassandra; his nephews Calvin Jr. and DeAndre; his nieces Caryn, Janice, and Sequoia; his grandchildren Lexy, Elaina, Jaide, Da’Moni and Kasey; as well as many more family members and a host of friends and acquaintances.
Timothy will be missed tremendously for his kindness, laughter, and generosity.
