George Alvis Robinson Jr.

George Alvis Robinson, Jr., 79, passed away Monday, Nov. 19, 2012 at his residence surrounded by his loved ones.

He was born Dec. 31, 1932, to George Alvis Robinson  and Opal Mahone Robinson in Corsicana.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and his brother, Robert “Bob” Robinson; and granddaughter, Rachel Lynea Slovak.

Survivors include his wife, Wanda Lois; son and wife, Randy and June Robinson, and daughters and sons-in-law, Susan and Gregory Slovak, and Teresa and David Cox. He is also survived by grandchildren, Jeremy Robinson and wife Valerie, Erica Robinson, Meagan Gould and husband Jason, Morgan Hickerson and husband Corey, Adam Fuller, Aaron Fuller, Daron Fuller, Jason Cox, Natalie Cox, Ashley Cox, John Cox, and Joel Cox.; and  great-grandchildren, Jaxon Gould, Reagan Gould, Aaron Fuller, Makayleh Fuller, Cade Cox and Chloe Cox. He is survived by his brother, Dr. James Robinson and wife Mary; and sisters, Peggy Chandler, and Shirley Jordan and husband Billy.

George was a family man and most happy when his family was all together. He is best described as a loving, kind, tender-hearted, proud and quiet man. He had a certain twinkle in his eyes that would make you smile. He loved having coffee with the “guys” at the Senior Center or as George liked to call it “The Re-cycled Teenager Center.” He loved playing Forty-two with friends. He enjoyed raising cattle and working on the farm while riding his tractor. He was a fisherman and would travel all over the United States in his fifth wheel with his wife, Wanda. George loved the outdoors and seeing all of God’s creations.

He was an active member of First Baptist Church in Blooming Grove. He served his country in the U.S. Army and continued to serve his community as a Highway Patrolman for the better part of his life. George never met a stranger.

Visitation with the family is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012, at Corley Funeral Home in Corsicana.

The funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Nov, 21, 2012, at First Baptist Church in Blooming Grove with Bro. Grady Cashion officiating.

Pallbearers will be Jeremy Robinson, Jason Gould, Corey Hickerson, Adam Fuller, Aaron Fuller and Daron Fuller. Interment will follow at Hamilton Beeman Cemetery.
