Celebrating the life of

William "Bill" Boyd Robinson

March 05, 1945 - March 13, 2024


William “Bill” Boyd Robinson, 78, passed away on Wednesday, March 13, 2024, surrounded by his family.

Bill is preceded in death by his parents Samuel and Adelaide “Catherine” (Constantine) Robinson and sister Roberta (Robinson) Baker, and leaves behind his wife Delia (Soldwedel) Robinson of Tybee Island, GA; son, Zak Robinson of Austin, TX; son, Ian Robinson of Atlanta, GA; daughter, Zoe Robinson of Jacksonville, FL; son, Lars Erik Robinson of Largo, FL; grandsons Sean Robinson and Wyatt Monsalve Robinson; and nephews Bob Baker, Chris Baker and Carl Baker.

Bill was born in Maplewood, New Jersey in 1945. In his early adult years, Bill worked on Wall Street in New York City as a runner in the late 60s. Moving to Greenwich Village, NY this is also where he became a hippie at heart listening to some of his favorite bands such as the Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan. This era shaped his personality to go against social norms and be who he wanted to be and just enjoy life.

In the late 70s, Bill was convinced by one of his childhood friends to move down to St. Petersburg, FL. Where he got a job working as a bond trader for Raymond James. He was known for never wearing dress clothes or suits and only wore tie dye or Hawaiian shirts while having a beard and long hair. In 1988, Bill married the love of his life, Delia, and had three children.

Bill and his family moved from Florida to North Carolina to North Georgia and then ultimately landed on Tybee Island, GA in 2010. After 14 years of living on Tybee and having an accounting business on the island, Bill had become a familiar face to many locals. Over the past 11 years, both he and his wife became heavily involved in the St. Michael’s Catholic Church community, where he would serve as an usher during the weekly mass. 

To say the least, Bill will be greatly missed by all. May he enjoy the rest of his eternal life in hippie heaven where those tie dye shirts and cargo pants are plentiful.

A memorial service on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, will begin with the Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary at 10:30 am followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 am, at St. Michael’s Catholic Church on Tybee Island. Followed by a private burial with family only at the Catholic Cemetery in Savannah, GA. A funeral reception will be held for friends and family at Tybee Island Maritime Academy Gym at 1:30 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that you consider a donation in Bill's memory to Saint Michaels Catholic Church, 802 Lovell Ave, Tybee Island, Georgia 31328 or on the church’s website.
