Danny Joe Robinson

Danny Robinson, 64, of Providence Forge, Virginia, passed away on June 6, 2023 at his home after a brief illness.

Danny was a proud resident of Providence Forge for over 20 years where he shared a home with his wife and beloved dogs. He joined C&O Railroad when he was 17 years old and retired from CSX Railroad as a heavy equipment operator after 42 years of service.

Danny will be remembered for his bright smile and outgoing personality. He never met a stranger and could strike up a conversation with anybody. Danny loved auctions and flea markets, as buying and selling stuff was in his blood. He and his wife started a small auction business, where he enjoyed talking with all folks. Danny had a heart of gold and always had a kind word for everyone. He was dearly loved by his family and will be missed by all who knew him.

Danny is preceded in death by his father, Angus (Joe) Robinson.

He is survived by his wife, Onna Lisa Williams; mother, Eula M. Robinson; his dear daughter Deseree Billings and her husband Tom; his three grandchildren, Ethan, Kendall, and Casey; and his sister, Rita Payne and her husband Ronnie.

A Celebration of Life was held on Tuesday, June 13, at Peninsula Funeral Home in Newport News.
