Surviving are his loving wife Deborah Azzarito Robinson; sons, Samuel Ross Robinson, Jr. and Ethan Marshall Robinson; step-son Brandon D. Coppock; and sisters Deborah Robinson Nunamaker and Bonnie Robinson Morrison.
Ross grew up in the country, in Monticello, SC. He attended Richard Winn Academy in Winnsboro, Timmerman School in Columbia, and Camden Military In Camden. He then graduated Irmo High School in 1987.
He proudly served our country in the United States Army for 2 years and spent time overseas in Korea.
He had worked as a Senior Network Administrator for the SC Dept Of Housing for 13 years and was a respected and valued member of his team there.
Ross both loved fishing and hunting and the land he called home ; as well as books and words and music and poetry.
But Ross' greatest love was his family and friends. Nothing made him happier than being with the people he loved. He was fiercely protective and always made time when he was needed.
After being diagnosed with cancer in the summer of 2016, he " STORMED" and fought and laughed and loved right up until God took him home. He fought bravely and with a strength and grace everyone around him admired. Ross was deeply loved and he loved just as deeply.
