Deacon Quincy Robinson

May 15, 1932 ~ April 18, 2021 (age 88)


Quincy Robinson was born on May 15, 1932 in Rimini, South Carolina to Ben and Ella Robinson who preceded in death. Being one of nine children, Quincy was raised and educated in Pinewood, South Carolina with his siblings: Charlie, Louise, Ethel, Dorothy, Daisy, Rebecca (all who preceded him in death) and Issac.  Quincy was a member of the Antioch Roman United Methodist Episcopal Church in Rimini, South Carolina. 


In 1954, Quincy left South Carolina and migrated north. He eventually settled in Philadelphia where he pursed his career in construction. While in Philadelphia, Quincy worked for two major companies: Imperial Metal and Dupont Construction. In 1958, Quincy married the love of his life Gladys Mercedes Robinson who preceded him in death. From their love and dedicated union, five beautiful children were born. Quincy loved being a father, grandfather, brother and uncle. He was loving and devoted husband and father.


" Uncle Quincy" was committed to God, once he moved to Philadelphia, he united with Philippian Baptist Church.  While a member of Philippian, Quincy served as a dedicated Deacon and Prayer Warrior for over 40 years. Until the very end, Quincy maintained his strong will for life and righteousness, and for his family. He cared for his beloved wife Gladys Robinson until the very end.


Quincy’s profound stories, mentorship and legacy will forever be missed in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. He will be missed by all who were blessed to share his smiles, laughter and love.


On Sunday, April 18, 2021, God called Quincy home. He leaves to cherish his memories: three sons, Theodore Robinson, Anthony Robinson (who preceded in him death), and Alvin Robinson of Columbia, South Carolina; three daughters, Patricia English of Conway, South Carolina, Jeanette Robinson and Gwendolyn Jones ( Kyle) of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; one brother, Issac Robinson of Rimini, South Carolina; ten grandchildren; six great- grandchildren; and a host of nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.
