“After the clouds, the sunshine; after the winter, the spring; After the shower, the rainbow; for life is a changeable thing. After the night, the morning, bidding all darkness cease, After life’s cares and sorrows, the comfort and sweetness of peace.” On Friday, October 13, 2023; after battling cancer for several years, James was granted sweet eternal rest.

Cherished memories will forever remain in the hearts of: his wife of 19 years, Christine; his sons, Ronnel and James Robinson, Dawn Stewart and Glenn Hart, Jr.; eight grandchildren, Ponta Rodgers, Jasmine Tyler, Ronyla Robinson, Zanaviah Jones, Jayvy Robinson, Kierrh Robinson, Tyron Robinson and Kaleel Robinson; two great-granddaughters, Charli and Chasity; two sisters, Nellie Jones of Suffolk, Virginia and Rose Easter of Virginia Beach, Virginia; three brothers, Robert Camp of Emporia, Virginia, Willie Wilkins of Waldorf, Maryland and Jerry Wilkins of Clarksville, Tennessee; a loving sister-in-law, Iris Wilkins of Waldorf, Maryland; a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
