Anthony Wilding Robinson, 85, of Hendersonville, passed away on Sunday, June 7, 2015 at the Brian Center, following a period of declining health. A lifelong resident of Henderson County, he was a son of the late Chief and Beatrice Robinson.

He retired as a drill instructor following a 20 plus years of service in the U.S. Army, and was a member of the VFW Post 5206, American Legion Post 77, and was a Governor of the Moose Lodge. Anthony was an auto enthusiast who never met a stranger, and easily made friends wherever his travels took him.

A graveside service, with military rites, will be held at 3 pm on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at Forest Lawn Memorial Park. Curtis Kirby will officiate the service

May God provide you and your family with peace and ìthe comfort from the Scripturesî during this difficult time. (Romans 15:4) The Bible shares a wonderful resurrection hope for future. I pray that you find comfort in the wonderful promises of John 5:28, 29 and Acts 24:15.
