Marion Burgess Robinson

WINNSBORO – After a courageous four year battle with cancer, Marion Burgess Robinson (Herbie) died at his home surrounded by his family on Friday, May 8, 2020. 

Marion was born on May 9, 1947 to Lester Blair Robinson and Marjorie Perry Robinson Lewis.  He is survived by his loving wife Vickie; daughter Gina Shearer (Todd) and son Jason Robinson (Kristen); granddaughters Jordan, Jamie, and Julia Shearer; step grandson Landon Byrum, all of Apex, NC; brother Davis Robinson (Anne); and loving niece, nephews, and other relatives. 

Marion attended USC and graduated from Midlands Tech with a degree in computer science.  He worked as a systems analyst with SCE&G and as a traveling consultant with SCT, Ventyx, and AAC Utility Partners.  His fondest memories were cooking with his brother as owners of Mr. Hawg BBQ in Winnsboro.  Marion was a member of First United Methodist Church and proudly served on Fairfield County Council for a short while. 

Marion loved his family, animals, especially his cats, NASCAR, sports, and cooking.  He never met a stranger and made many long lasting friendships wherever he traveled. 

Due to the current health situation, a private family service will be held on Sunday, May 17, 2020 and a memorial service will be scheduled at a later date. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to a charity of one’s choice.
