Obituary of Glennie Robinson, Sr.

Glennie "Rob" Robinson Sr., 69, of Columbia, South Carolina, passed away on September 2, 2021. He was born on August 10, 1952 in Tarboro, North Carolina to Arthur Hilliard and Maniza (Robinson) Cole.

Glennie earned his college education from Edgecombe Community College, Central Texas College, Almeda University, and Midlands Technical College. Glennie also joined the Navy and later retired from the Army with a degree in Culinary Arts. He continued practicing Culinary Arts, internationally, in his civilian career and became the Project Manager supporting Wamar Support Services, The American-Iraqi Solutions Group, KBR, and DynCorp International. 

Glennie's zest and over-standing for life will be remembered with so much love down generations to come. His family and friends will continue to honor him by living their lives to the fullest. The simplest pleasures in life, such as fishing, traveling, and late night rides to Krispy Kreme with his wife, brought the greatest joy to Glennie. You could always catch him watching the current news, the history channel, or the Food Network. Rob leaves behind a legacy that can't be erased.

Glennie is survived in love by his wife, Delores Green Robinson; daughters, Glenda and Bianca Robinson; sons, Ryan Washington and Glennie Robinson Jr.; stepdaughter, Princess Corley and husband Christopher; and granddaughter Amiya.
