Charles Etheridge Robinson, III passed peacefully in his home in Murrells Inlet on Monday, July 21, 2014 with his wonderful wife, Kathy Robinson at his side. Mr. Robinson was born Nov. 26, 1945 in Raleigh, NC to Charles Etheridge Robinson Jr. and Melba Mills Robinson. He went by many different names to different people and wore many different hats in his lifetime. He was Dad, Charles, Eddie, uncle, mayor, husband, Grandpa, friend and many others.
Mr. Robinson was a helicopter medic in the US Army where he did two tours in Vietnam. He graduated from the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA in 1972. He went on to work with the NC Dept of Revenue. During this time, Mr. Robinson was elected as the Mayor of Sharpsburg, NC. After his retirement from NCDOR, he then worked as a self-employed contractor in Rocky Mount and in Myrtle Beach.
Mr. Robinson was preceded in death by his father Charlie, mother Melba, niece Cathi and his beloved sister Carol Robinson Smith. There was no describing the relationship he had with his wonderful sister; they were inseparable. When she passed, a part of him was lost. We are happy they are together again.
Mr. Robinson was survived by his wife, Kathy Robinson of Murrells Inlet and their dog Caroline; his daughter Missy Gower, her husband Mel and children Chloe and Brianna of Cary, NC; his son Samuel Robinson, his wife Adrienne and children Quinn and Celeigh of Cary, NC; and his son T. Blake Robinson of Hayes, VA. Other family members include June and David Bowles of Cary, NC; Jimmy, Kathy and Layton Smith of Apex, NC; Kenny Smith; Nelson and Katherine Smith of Raleigh, NC and many other extended family members that will miss his mischievous giggle.
