Edward Robinson

October 13, 1958 ~ October 8, 2021 (age 62)


Edward M. Robinson was born on October 13, 1958, to Donald and Emma Robinson in Akron. Ohio. He transitioned on October 8, 2021, at the age of 62 after an extended illness.

He was a lifelong resident of Akron, Ohio, and was a graduate of South High School class of ’78. He worked various jobs throughout his life and retired from Akron Paint and Varnish due to illness. Edward
had a kind, gentle, easy-going spirit, much like his mother, and had a sense of humor that would bring you to tears. His presence will be sorely missed.

He enjoyed being with his family, having a good laugh or two, listening to some good music, and watching TV. He loved old school cars and really enjoyed just driving around listening to music.
Edward was preceded in death by his mother and step-father; Emma A (John) Roberts; father, Donald R. Robinson, SR.; daughter, Thai Lynn Futch and longtime companion Karen Rosser.

He is survived by his daughters; Michelle D. Powe and Denise (Jason) Taylor; siblings, Donald (Mykeicha) Robinson, Jr., Sharon (Charles) Robinson; grandchildren, Devonte W. Powe, DeMarcus D. Powe, DeAire E. Powe and Dalaina R. Powe and a host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends as well as his longtime cat Pretty.
