Wayne A. Robinson


Wayne A. Robinson, 66, passed away on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at home in Saint Petersburg, Florida surrounded by his family after a courageous battle with cancer.

He was born on September 25, 1950 to Earl and Doris Robinson in Scotia, New York. Wayne spent most of his childhood summers fishing from dawn until dusk at his family's camp in Wells, New York. The passion for fishing would continue throughout his life.

After graduating from Hudson Valley Community College, Wayne began a career in the United States Air Force. He served his country for 30 years. He participated in seven wars on seven different continents. Wayne earned numerous humanitarian and distinguished medals for his heroic efforts. The world was not only a better place, but also a safer place with Wayne in it.

Wayne married his wife and best friend, Lori in 2008. He loved to travel with her and would often surprise her with romantic destinations.

Wayne was incredibly proud of his family. He is survived by his wife, Lori; daughter, Aundrea Robinson; sister, Janice Lawson (Fred) and brother, Eric Robinson (Nicole). He is also survived by his beloved stepchildren, Denver Wilson (Sara), Sandra Williams (Russell), Amanda Geraghty and Nicholas Geraghty; and his eight grandchildren whom he adored, Dillon, Cali, Aleena, Wyatt, Weslee, Jackson, Rhettson and Scott.

The words that come to mind when describing Wayne are duty, decency, reliability and respect. These are all qualities that he not only held in high esteem but practiced every day during his life on earth.

A funeral service with military honors will be held 12:30pm Friday, April 28 at the Gerald B H Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery, Duell Road, Schuylerville.

Sorry to hear about the passing of Wayne, I was a fellow classmate from 1968, sounds like he had quite the service career.
