Arthur James Robinson

3rd Apr 1933 - 26th Oct 2020
87 years
Arthur was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He was born and raised in Manchester by his adoring parents, Ernie and Doris. He excelled in school, with maths being his favourite subject. He did his National Service with the RAF when he was 18 years old and was stationed in Ireland and it was here that he met his wife and the love of his love, Jill. The couple married and moved to England where they began to raise their family together. His faith was very important to him and he played an important role at St Phillip and James Church where he was a server and also edited and delivered the parish magazine. Arthur and Jill had four children together. He was a devoted and loving father to Paul, Michael, Anne Marie and Sarah, raising them to be as compassionate and hard-working as he always was. When his children married, Arthur was just as loving a father-in-law as he had been a father and he will be remembered fondly by his sons- and daughters-in-law. Arthur had fourteen grandchildren, who he adored. He was always ready to be a babysitter or taxi driver when needed and was only a phone call away to help out with tricky maths homework. He was a loving husband to Jill. The couple took frequent holidays together and had many friends, who will miss him dearly. He will be remembered by the Knit and Knatter ladies for the excellent cups of tea he supplied for them as they worked on their projects. He was always the life and soul of every party and everyone loved his dry sense of humour. Arthur was forever cracking jokes, right up to the end. Arthur's life was full of hobbies, including reading, playing tennis and spending time in the garden. He especially enjoyed watching Last of the Summer Wine - so much so that it was often said that he could act in it! Arthur will be greatly missed and his passing is painful for all who knew him. However, he will be remembered for all of the lives that he touched while he was here.

Nan described the Sue Ryder team as looking after Grandad as if he was a precious gem. I hope they can go on to look after more people in such a lovely way.
