Buddy Robinson

A shadow of sorrow was cast over the community when Buddy Robinson, 72, of Weatherford, builder of friends, families and cars, died Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013, at 8:30 p.m., at his home surrounded by family.


Memorial service is 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, in White’s Chapel of Memories, 130 Houston Ave., Weatherford.


He was born Ralph Alford Robinson but would be quick to let you know not to ever call him that. He was mostly called “Buddy,” but often just called “Dad.” He was born in Fort Worth to William Robert Robinson and Lottie Mae Montya. Though he grew up and lived around Fort Worth and Granbury, he called Weatherford home for the last 30 years. He was known around town for the automotive business he owned and the old cars, hot rod tractors and various creations he loved and built. He was a man’s man and was known for a firm handshake and a fair deal.

He loved to laugh and was a great storyteller with a deep voice and colorful expressions. If he was not wearing a shirt (and almost never sleeves), it was because he gave it to someone who needed it more. He deeply loved his family and friends and will be best remembered for the strong bonds and fantastic memories he created.
 Buddy lost his fight with pancreatic cancer after three rounds and eight tough years. Not an easy battle, but you rarely heard him complain.


Survivors include his wife, Donna Rabel Robinson; eight children (four by birth), Ralph A. Jr. “Pepper” Robinson, Guy William “Salty” Robinson, Buddy Joe Robinson and Lacey Robinson, and four children through marriage, Vickie Danford, Lisa Gay “Stinky” Cady, Cory Wood and Amy Wood; and sisters, Bobbie Brewer and Jo Ann Sweet.

In lieu of usual remembrances, the Robinson family suggests contributions in Buddy’s memory to Texas Metro Wildlife Rehabilitation, 6424 Parkmont Drive, Arlington, TX 76001.
