Kenneth Robinson

May 2, 1940 — August 25, 2023

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Kenneth "Jaws" Robinson on August 26, 2023, at the age of 83, following several weeks in the hospital. Although a failing heart took him from this world, his loving heart will forever touch those he loved and his community. Born on May 2, 1940, in Pike County, Ky. Kenneth is survived by his best friend and loving wife, Billie Joyce Robinson, married sixty-one years. He was a proud and amazing father to Mark Neil Robinson and wife, Kristen; grandfather to their children, Stevianna and husband Austin Anderson with baby Owen Luke yet to be born; and grandson, Kyle (Megan) Blackburn. He was a steadfast and loving brother to Katie Clevenger, host of nieces and nephews. Kenneth is survived by two great nieces, Lauren and Emma Kate. Kenneth is preceded in death by his loving parents Eunice and Lee Robinson and brother Harold Blake Robinson. Kenneth will also be missed by numerous other family members and friends, including many he extended his loving care to that admiringly looked to him as a second father including Mikie Lawson and Bryan Childers. Kenneth served his community with great pride and care in his wrecker service/garage for 55 years. No one quite knew the wrecker business like "Jaws" and likely no one could have loved a career more than Kenneth loved his wreckers. As the years passed could be seen sitting in that garage daily though his age proved to take a bit more time just getting from his pickup to his seat inside. It was a place friends and family could drop in for a friendly smile and happy spirit. Even children loved visiting Kenneth and many wonders of that garage whether it be Halloween candy or just old chains and tools to explore with Kenny offering a "let him play" or "let him have it." He was also known to have some snacks that he would share. He was a Pike County Magistrate for 16 years and loved all the friends he made performing that service to his community. He was also a member of the Masonic Lodge and the Good Ole Boys Car Club. Please join the Robinson family in honoring the memory of this fine man of character and love to all he knew at the Lucas and Son Funeral Home.
