Charles Derrick Robinson was born August 11, 1976, in Clarendon County, South Carolina to Clarence and Mary Robinson. Charles departed this life on Sunday, April 26, 2020. He and his wife, Demishia Woodson Robinson, spent his last day on this earth together at their home. Demishia was “the love of his life”.
Charles attended the public schools of Clarendon County and graduated from Scott’s Branch High School — “Eagle born, Eagle bred, until I die, I’ll be Eagle dead”. He then continued his education at South Carolina State University.
Charles was brought up in a Christian home and joined the Oaks African Methodist Episcopal Church at an early age, where he accepted Christ as his Savior.
He worked many places over the years. However, when he joined Clarendon Detention Center in Manning, South Carolina, he realized that was something he loved. He worked with the Department of Corrections for 13 years and worked his way to Lieutenant Correctional Officer.
Charles was a loving person. He was always writing words of encouragement to those he loved — family, friends, fellow-graduates from the Class of 1994, and many others.
He is preceded in death by George and Wilhelmenia Robinson and an uncle, Nate Robinson.
He leaves to cherish his memories, his devoted wife, Demishia Robinson; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Robinson; his siblings — Teresa, Tia and Desmond Robinson; his grandmother, Annie Mae Simmons of North, SC; a great aunt, Nancy Gaymon of Summerton, SC; father and mother-in-law, Thomas and Trina Woodson; sister-in-law, Porsche Woodson; brother-in-law, Nicolas Woodson; nieces — Lathajia Landy and Amenia Robinson; a nephew, Jayden Robinson (his right-hand-man); Carter Woodson; five aunts — Rosa (Morgan) Pearson, Aleitha (James) Brunson, all of Summerton, SC, Dyane (Dudley) Colvin of Moss Point, MS, Camilla Robinson, and Margie Robinson; and a host of other relatives and friends.
