On Tuesday, July 19, 2022, our beloved Stanley Leon Robinson, Jr. (Robbie) age 72, passed away peacefully in his sleep at home (Tower One Tower East) New Haven, Ct. after a brave battle with Dementia.

Robbie was born in New Haven, CT. to Juanita Hilton Ewing and Stanley Leon Robinson Sr., on August 16, 1949. A graduate of Mansfield High School, Mansfield, Massachusetts, in 1967. High school sports were a big part of his life. He was a star athlete in football, basketball and baseball who was part of winning team for his high school. I remember the endless practices, games, tournaments and banquets that he attended. Robbie trained hard so that he could become better and better to help win games for the Mansfield Hornets. He won many awards and trophies for his outstanding performances. Stanley’s grandmother (Isabell Brockington Hilton) also a enthusiastic baseball fan introduced him to baseball when he was younger. She took him to many baseball games at Yankee Stadium in New York City.

Robbie was kind, generous and compassionate, known for his quick wit and his infectious smile. He loved his family. He worried about them, rooted for them, protected them, and forgave them, and always kept on loving them. He wished to be remembered and acknowledge as a loving father, loyal, unselfish, friend, and most of all respected. Outside of sports Robbie loved to listen to jazz. Some of his favorites were Montgomery, Brubeck, Parker, Davis, Coltrane, Monk, Mingus and Blakely. He also loved to listen to the old R&B back in the day of the late 60’s, 70’s and 90’s. His collections of both jazz and R&B were astounding. Robbie was employed at Hartford Insurance Company, Hartford, CT., and American Express in Providence, Rhode Island, as an Account Payable Assistant. He was always good with figures.

He is survived by his three children his son Stanley Leon Robinson III, (Krystal) Providence Rhode Island, daughters Syke of Waterbury, Aaliyah and ex wife Tina Robinson of Providence, Rhode Island. His sister Patricia L. Brooks of New Haven, CT and his brother Jonathan H. Ewing (Karin) of Copenhagen, Denmark, nieces Alice and Asa of Copenhagen, Denmark and grandchildren and several relatives.

He was pre-deceased by his mother Juanita Hilton Ewing and father Stanley Leon Robinson Sr., grandparents O’Donnell and Isabell Hilton.
