Tribute

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father, Douglass Allen Robinson, on February 18, 2024, at the age of 91. He passed peacefully in his home surrounded by family.

Douglass dedicated his career to Verizon, formerly known as NYNEX and the New York Telephone Company, serving as a technician in the Data Center for 38 years. He was not only a skilled professional but also a second-degree black belt in Judo, and a beloved instructor of ballroom dance. 

Known for his kindness, generosity and lighthearted nature, he touched the lives of all who knew him, always bringing laughter and acceptance wherever he went. His dedication to his family ensured that they never lacked anything they needed.

Preceded in death by his wife, Bernadette, to whom he was married for 43 years, Douglass leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion. He is survived by his six children: Susan (William), Steven (Lynne), Keith, Karen (Joseph), Michael (Rachel), and Richard; three grandchildren: Nikki (Kyle), Jessica (Brian), and Joseph; and two step-grandchildren: Brad (Robin) and Jennifer (Rich). He also leaves behind nine great-grandchildren: Ryland, Kinsley, Declan, Hadley, Matthew, Maeve, Rebecca, Jared, and Brooke
