Benjamin "Benj" Todd Robinson

Published 10-5-12

ENID, Okla. — Benjamin “Benj” Todd Robinson, 37, was born October 31, 1974, in Enid to Bill and Cindi (Painter) Robinson. He died suddenly October 2, 2012, of a heart attack in Enid.

Benj married Lita Walkingbull with whom he had one child. They later divorced. He was C.L.E.E.T. certified, a certified lawn technician and a certified fitness trainer. His most recent employment was Athey Lumber Com-pany and Bekins Moving and Storage.

He was an excellent athlete, playing all sports, including baseball at Enid High School and Enid American Legion. Benj graduated from Enid High School in 1993.

Benj had an adventuresome spirit, and everyone he met was a friend. He was an avid OU football fan and loved fishing and the outdoors. His greatest love, however, was his daughter, Autumn Joy, whom he raised.

Surviving Benj are his daughter, Autumn Joy, of the home; father, Bill Robinson and mother, Cindi (Painter) Robinson, both of Enid; brother, Zac and wife Heather and their children, Jace and Xin Ai Robinson, all of Germany; grandmothers, Frances Painter and Joy Robinson, both of Enid; uncles and aunts, Jim Painter and wife Sandy of Enid, Sarylyn Sanders of Texas, Buddy Plummer and wife Linda of Broken Arrow; great-uncles and aunts, Marj Hohnbaum and husband Cec of North Little Rock, AR, Darlene Hillery of Enid, Roberta Kirkhart of Los Angeles, CA; and many friends too numerous to count.

He was preceded in death by an infant brother and sister, Beau Victor and Kacey Joy; grandfathers, William V. Robinson and Jim Painter; uncle, Richard Hillery; great-grandparents, Jess and Sarah Painter, Ed and Dru Hillery and Robert and Lela Kirkhart.

Funeral will be 2 p.m. Friday, October 5, 2012, at First United Methodist Church. Dr. Grayson Lucky and Reverend James Lambert will officiate. Burial will follow in Enid Cemetery. Services are under direction of Henninger-Hinson Funeral Home.
