Bob Robinson, 82, passed away peacefully at home on Feb. 2, 2019.

He is survived by his wife Marianne, sister Stephanie Robinson of the Dominican Sisters of Blauvelt, and daughter Mee-Lise.

He was a gentle and compassionate man who was devoted to his family and sensitive to the plight of those living in poverty. He graduated from Parsons School of Design and continued his education at The New School, the Art Students League of New York, Pratt Institute, and the Sorbonne.
