CHARLES ROBERT ROBINSON
Charles Robert Robinson age 74 passed away peacefully surrounded by his family. Charlie was born on October 11,1940. He attended St. Joseph's School and Key West High School. Charlie is probably best known from Mel and Charlie's Amoco and Car Wash, The Bicycle Center, Keys Moped and Scooter along with his many business endeavors. Always generous, Charlie would donate bicycles at Christmas time to multiple nonprofits and gladly helped any who asked. Being a Master Mechanic by trade afforded him the ability to aid many a Key Wester with their boat engine problems, he was involved with the Antique Car Club and could often be seen at his Key Haven garage working on one or more of his classic cars. Charlie will be remembered for his love of a good time, his loyalty to his friends and his passion for his wife, Regina. We can be sure every time we see that big American flag, we will pause for a moment with a lump in our throats and hear him say, "Keep on smiling." He will truly be missed.
Charlie was predeceased by his parents, Virginia and Charles Robinson, his brother-in-law and friend, Rudy Armocida. He is survived by his beloved wife Regina, his children Bonnie (Sami), Timmy, Ginny and Jason (Sasha), Regina Jr. (Michael), Paul and John Wayne, his grandchildren Angel, Lauren, Heather, Holly, CJ, Rachael and Alex, his great grandchildren Diego, Dominick, Angelina, Olivia, Emery, Zoya and Annora and his sisters Lois Armocida and Martha Geopfert.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday July 16 at Castillo & Thurston's Key West Mortuary located at 328 Truman Ave from 12 -2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to The Marc House http://www.marchouse.org/uploads/files/DonationForm.pdf
