Liel Pagiel Robinson, the 2nd of nine siblings was born on March 31, 1938, to Vera and Robert Robinson. He was born and raised in Saint Elizabeth, Jamaica, where he completed his formative years. He later moved to Kingston to start his life as an adult.
While living in Kingston, his neighbor introduced him to her sister Verona Smith, who was visiting from Montego bay Jamaica, and they immediately found affection in each other’s eyes. Liel and Verona dated each other for a year, during that time they attended Rollington Town S.D.A. Church after being invited by Liel’s landlord. They decided to take their relationship to the next level and got married on May 11, 1963. Not only did they dedicate their lives to each other, they also made Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior through baptism, and became members of Rollington Town S.D.A.
Liel was a stern father, a faithful husband and a hard-working man. He would gather his family together every day for morning and evening worship. he made sure his children were well mannered and stayed out of trouble, and he also saw to it that no one was in need.
Liel Robinson retired from Jamaica Flour Mills, where he worked for over 25 years. He later migrated to the United States with Verona in 2003. They first lived in New York for three years before moving down to Florida to be close to their children. They resided in the city of Sunrise until his wife of 54 years fell asleep in the Lord on August 6, 2017. Liel was sad and heart broken, he was never the same again; exemplifying the true meaning of being “one flesh”. Not long after this sad moment, Liel moved to Apopka, FL where he lived, until the Lord saw it fit to close his eyes on Thursday September 2, 2021 at 1:43 pm.
Liel Robinson is survived by his living children Derrick Robinson, Sandra Green, Rayon Robinson, Clive Robinson (spouse Patrice), Patrick Robinson, Oneil Robinson (spouse Donna), Christopher Robinson (spouse Leisha) and Oliver Robinson. Ten grandchildren, five great grandchildren and four living siblings Rupert, Dorothy, Emma and Joseph, and a host of nieces and nephews.
His favorite bible passage is psalm 34, and his favorite hymn “Under His Wings”. It was in the words of that song Liel found solace, strength and peace, especially after the passing of his loving wife.
We have this blessed hope that he will rise again in the first resurrection when he will meet his Savior, and all who he has left behind.
Sleep in peace pop! You are loved dearly, and will be greatly missed.
In a little while we will see you again.
