Mr. William Carl Robinson

May 5, 1985 — June 14, 2020

Robinson, William C.
My beautiful son, William Carl Robinson, passed away late afternoon Sunday, June 14, 2020 from a fatal pulmonary embolism. He was 35 years old. He is survived by his mom Roxanne, his daughter Charlie, a special friend Aimee Simonis, Aunt Judy Wortman and a large extended family and many friends.
Will loved to be always moving. As a baby, he could be held close while asleep. As soon as he could stand, he was jumping. As soon as he could walk, he was running.
Will started going “up north” to his aunts’ cottage when he was a few months old and slept in a tent for the first of many times. He loved to swim with his cousins, fish with his dad and uncles, go to parades with his mom and aunts. His dad had a fishing pole in his hand as soon as he could grip one. Will was scouting deer and hunting with his dad right from the start. He was a very talented archer and belonged to Bucktails Archery Club. He could tell a fishing tale with the talent of the best storyteller. Willy grew up in Bohners Lake where he had many pets; iguanas, dogs, cats, chickens, and rabbits. He did well in school, but his place was outdoors or in the garage with his dad, rebuilding motorcycles, making rockets, or whatever project caught their interest. He was very close with his mom, and would visit his grandparents, many aunts, uncles and cousins, and attend every family event.
Will’s true nature was one of extreme sensitivity. He was easily and deeply wounded; he cried when others were cruel. He handled his father’s death and was a support to his mom since. He laughed and played pranks and left us laughing. He was caring to a fault.
Will was very smart, resourceful, and determined. As he grew, he built a new and tougher personality; a personality of cool, of fun. He built stubborn walls to protect that fragile self. He constructed a defensive, brittle confidence. He made friends, he gave parties, he was a boy scout, he drove fast. He loved working on his cars, trucks and bikes.
Will was a great father to his daughter Charlie Anne. He is so proud of her and loved every moment with her. He passed on his love for animals and the outdoors, his ability to make people laugh and be silly. He took her outdoors as often as he could to every petting zoo or to a friend’s farm to pet kitties, which is her favorite thing to do. He taught her where the secret fishing spot is and where to stand, but she’s not telling!
What Will really wanted, more than anything else, was closeness. Ever determined, he worked hard on understanding what he was doing wrong, how he could be a better person, a better friend, a better dad. And I think he was really beginning to get it.
The Friday before he died, we spent it together and we had a long talk about his goals and his path. I hold those conversations close in my heart and ask you to hold him close in your mind and spirit.
A private viewing for his family will be held Saturday June 20, 2020. A Celebration of Life for ALL friends and family will be held at his mother’s home, 25415 Apple Road, Waterford, WI, 53185 from 2:00 PM- 6:30 PM on Saturday. In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated, made to “Roxanne Robinson” for expenses and other needs.
