Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m., Sunday, March 23, 2013, at 16 Yakima Road in Dexter, for David D. Robinson, 72, of Midway, who passed away on March 14, 2013.
David D. Robinson was born on Sept. 16, 1940, in Pittsburgh, to Charles and Adella Robinson. They preceded him in death, as did a daughter Dawuda Robinson-Rashad, in 2005.
He married Hikama Robinson-Rashad on Aug. 25, 1982, in Fairfax County, Virginia. She survives him at the family home.
He is also survived by sons, Drake and Kisha Simmons, Abdul and Doris Rashad, Hakim and Jessica Rashad, and Hasson Rashad; daughters, Judy Robinson, Davida and Phillip Alladin, Davina and Takeo Soga, and Jamila and Debvon Worthy-Rashad; 27 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
He obtained an associate’s degree, worked as a truck driver for 25 years and at Walmart in maintenance for seven years. He loved life to the fullest, and never asked more from anyone else than he was willing to give. He loved his wife, children and grandchildren very much. Per his wishes, he wants his memorial service to be a time of music, humor, and good time memories. He also wants his favorite Torah message read and for everyone to have a shot of Jim Beam.
He was a member of the Beytshalom.
