Jerry W. Robinson

Jerry Wallace Robinson was born in Chapmanville, West Virginia on June 18, 1938 and died on October 10, 2019.  Jerry Robinson was a loving parent, husband, grandparent, friend, coach and teacher whose sense of humor, wit and intelligence will be greatly missed. He was preceded in death by his parents Lucille (Barker) and Ted Robinson.  Jerry graduated from Chapmanville High School in 1955, played football and was a member of the state championship golf team.  His siblings Dick (Sylvia) and Keith (Gloria) preceded Jerry in death but he is survived by his brother Bill. Jerry graduated from Marshall University with his AB in Education and later earned a Masters Degree.  He married Ann Treacy Robinson in 1964 in Huntington, West Virginia.  They had two children David (Julie) and Treacy (Jim) Cox and three grandchildren: Maria and Jamie Cox and Hugh Robinson.  Jerry taught social studies at Chapmanville High School and Lake Weir, Florida but spent most of his professional career at Reynoldsburg High School where he taught various social studies classes from 1964-1986 and was the Athletic Director from 1986-1998. Jerry’s lifetime personal passion was golf which he learned as a caddy growing up, played at Marshall University, and coached at Reynoldsburg High School from 1964-2002 winning 2 Ohio Capital Conference championships and leading six individuals and one team to the Ohio State High School Championship Tournament.  He was named to the Reynoldsburg Sports Hall of Fame, Reynoldsburg Coach of the Year and Ohio High School Golf Coach’s Hall of Fame.  Many thanks for all the caring help given to Jerry and his family by the Ohio Health Hospice, his wonderful aides, nurses and doctors, and family and friends who provided him with so much support these last two years.  In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Ohio Health Hospice or the Jason Murphy Memorial Scholarship Fund. As Jerry requested there will be no funeral services.

    A dear friend who I will truly miss. I believe Jerry is in heaven now and all the pain and suffering has been replaced with peace and contentment. Jerry meant a lot to his family and I know they are going through a sad time, but you may rejoice because he is at rest now. God Bless the family and comfort them in their time of need.

    Mr. Robinson was my high school golf coach. He was a kind man who was very supportive even while maintaining his high expectations. He was a man of integrity and conveyed that trait to all of his golfers. He always had a joke to tell or a song to share.

    He was one of the original pillars of the Reynoldsburg Sports community and he will be missed!

    Mrs. Robinson, I am so sorry for your loss. I know he is happy, once again making birdies at the course of his choice!

He was quick witted never for a loss for words. We had lots of fun times on Sundays with him! I know he’s up there in heaven looking down and still making fun of my swing!! Mrs Robinson sorry for your loss but know he is with God now!

    I just learned of Jerry’s passing and I want to extend my sympathy to his family. I got to know Jerry in 1992 when I came to Reynoldsburg to work as a volunteer assistant to the athletic program. Jerry was always full of life and willing to extend his friendship to everyone he met. I will always remember the Friday night away road trip games we went on with Jack and Bobby. Rest in peace friend.
