Joe was born in December, in Archer, Florida, to the late Tom and Louise Robinson. He was converted and baptized at an early age at St. Joseph Missionary Baptist Church, Archer, where he remained a faithful member throughout his life. Joe met his wife, Rosetta Crawford, and the couple married on January 21, 1951. This union was blessed with seven children. Joe is survived by five loving daughters -Dorothy Roundtree and Jacquelene Polke, Archer; Loretha Cleveland and Janice Harrell (Eric), Gainesville; Cynthia Williams (Edward), Panama City; one son - Theodore Robinson, Memphis, TN. His faithful wife, Rosetta Robinson, and loving oldest son, Joe Robinson, Jr., preceded him in death, as did a devoted son-in-law, Clarence Polke. He also leaves to celebrate his memory four sisters- Emma Sherman (Elmo), Gainesville; Elzolla Rollins (Laundra), Archer; Estella Moore, St Petersburg; and, Inetha Cummings (Arthur) Burlington, NC. Siblings, Lucille Poole (John), Tom Robinson, Jr., Daisy Robinson, Margaret Brown and Clarence Robinson (Rebecca), as well as in-laws Ella Mae Perry, Amos Crawford, Jr. (Queen), and Daisy Eagle (Vasco), preceded Joe, Sr. in death.
Joe will be greatly missed by 14 remarkable grandchildren, 14 aspiring great grandchildren, and a host of sorrowing nieces, nephews, cousins and friends, who will forever remember Joe for his hard work, family dedication, perseverance, and ability to harvest prize winning watermelons and other bountiful crops throughout Alachua County. He loved his community and committed his life to providing food as a resource for a better sustainable future.
