Whereas, Mr. Robinson received his Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from South Carolina State University in 1971; and
Whereas, he was an educator and businessman, with Ed's Driver's School, Edward's Trucking Company, and Ed and Sam's Amoco Station among his more notable enterprises; and
Whereas, for more than twenty-six years, Mr. Robinson served as a councilman for the City of Florence, South Carolina, making him one of the longest-serving members of city council. He also served on a number of boards and commissions; and
Whereas, he was a faithful member of Cumberland United Methodist Church and a member of the Bible Study Group of the Church of Florence; and
