Kevin G. Robinson

January 11th, 2017

Kevin G. Robinson, age 50 of Honolulu, Hawaii, formerly of Wilmington, MA, died unexpectedly in Hawaii on January 8, 2017.

Kevin was born in Boston, MA on October 15, 1966; he was the cherished son of Richard and Marilyn Robinson of Wilmington. Kevin was raised and educated in Wilmington and was a graduate of Austin Prep High School with the Class of 1984. Kevin went on to further his education at Trinity College in Hartford, CT; earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics while playing the sport he loved, Hockey.

Kevin worked as a Managing Partner with Hawaii Opportunities Group LLC and for Ocean Network in Hawaii.

Not only had Kevin lived in Massachusetts and Hawaii but spread his humor and impact globally residing in Istanbul and Germany. Kevin may have moved to Honolulu, Hawaii but he was always a true Bostonian through and through. Despite his 18 years of island living he never lost his love of Boston and its spirit. Kevin was a true New England sports fan and always passionately watched the Patriots and Bruins.

Kevin’s greatest role in life was being an Uncle (or “Krunks” for Crazy Uncle Kevin). If you ask any of his nieces and nephews, he was always the fun-loving uncle who always made time for them. He was a kid at heart and the uncle that everyone wished they had. Not only was he a wonderful uncle to his biological nieces and nephews, Kevin was so unique that he took on the uncle role to many of his friend’s children.

Kevin will be remembered for his magnetic personality, contagious laugh, and his ability to always bring fun to the party. Kevin would do anything for anyone; he was such an amazing son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend to many. He will forever be loved and missed by all who knew him.

    I met Kevin in Honolulu, August 2015. I have thought of him every day since then and today is no exception. As the first anniversary of his death approaches I am beginning to see my way out of the grief wilderness to a sort of promised land, which I’d a place where I am enveloped in a cloud of gratitude and even joy. Kevin was right years my senior and one of his missions became teaching me social and business customs I missed learning due to various life challenges. Kevin was more to me someone playing the role of Henry Higgens opposite my representation of Eliza Doolittle. He showed me another way to regard myself. I want to share something personal. Kevin was separated from so many loved ones ones by time and distance. I want to bring the essence of who he was closer to people who want more of him. Kevin taught me that I did not have you rely on my degree from a prestigious university to validate me and distract people from my troubles with mental illness. Once he asked me what my medication was for, and I looked down and shook my head. Before I could answer, he said, “you don’t ever have to hang your head about taking medication. It’s just plumbing.”No o e had ever framed bipolar disorder in terms other than hod of bad. All my life I was told I could not get adopted, or make friends, etc., etc., because I was “bad” and “crazy.”. But to Kevin’s way of thinking, this problem did not reflect on Mr as s person any more than plumbing troubles in a house determine the happiness of the home. This revolutionary paradigm shift showed me I, (even me!), I had a chance at happiness. Kevin brought do much of that happiness and i had the chance you experience love. I am profoundly grateful that in our sometimes eventful relationship, we were on solid footing in our last moments together. “Isnt it nice how happy KellyCat is that we are getting along so well, ” Kevin noted about my/our beloved cat. That was his way of expressing his feelings. We had planned to figure out when he was going to return home in the morning, to the family he lived and missed after too long of an absence. He did go home, not the way we planed. But he left me better off for having known and loved ones him. And he returned to his roots where he belonged most if all. I continue to hope that this separation is not goodbye but “see you later.”
