Antwon Robinson

October 23, 1975 — April 5, 2024

New Port Richey

     Tony, the son of Clarence & Valerie Robinson, was the son other parents wanted. He was a kind, observant, and loving young man raised in William's Temple Church of GOD in CHRIST in Cleveland, Ohio. He never forgot his roots. When he closed his eyes, he went home to be with the LORD. He was an unknown artist. While in elementary school, he came home with a hand drawn picture of Bugs Bunny. His dad asked, "Who drew it?" Tony, with a Kool-Aid smile proudly said, "I did!" His dad said, "Okay, let me see you do it again!" After he drew it so well, he looked at his dad, and without speaking, gave him the, "I told you so!" look. His freehand work amazed many.

     Growing up, Tony and Tyvonny were fun brothers. Tyvonny was affectionately called Baby Brother and Tony treated him as such. Late at night, when they should have been asleep, they'd be telling jokes and laughing with a flashlight! For some reason, they thought their mom or dad would not see or hear them! Sonequa had a wonderful bond with him. Attending the same high school, they shared secrets and plans for how to get around their parents' rules. They thought their plans worked; they would be shocked when their mom showed up at the school or wherever! Tony took the initiative to look after his youngest sister, Sheri. That made their relationship special. He enjoyed expressing his creativity in and kitchen and often called Sheri for recipes and new foodie ideas.

     When their dad went home to be with the LORD, everyone was an adult. Yet his mom made Tony the Head-of-the-House. He was the go-to for instruction and counsel. He did it well; carrying out his authority after deliberation, with accuracy regarding the situation. He never missed a beat. He chastised Tyvonny once about his employment status, "Get a Walmart job! Anybody can say, 'Welcome for coming'!"
He had his way of dealing with adversity by asking a very simple question, "What difference do it make?" Funny, when he asked the question, it caused you to reflect and reassess the situation. Life is short. What difference will you make? 

     In 2017 Antwon (Tony) Robinson married the love of his life, Melanie Weaver Robinson. They made a life for themselves in Florida with Antwon's 2 youngest children.
