Mr. Robbins "drafted" me directly from the student body to play the role of "Nanki-Poo" in Gilbert & Sullivan's "The Mikado" with no previous chorale or drama club experience. In doing so, he opened a world of opportunity for me in my senior year in 1965 at Camden County High School.

He also gave me a chance to get to know a wonderful group of
schoolmates I might otherwise have never known. They were very tolerant and forgiving of my ineptitude as I struggled with the difficult role.

Mr. Robbins was always a consummate gentleman and a thoroughly professional teacher of the highest caliber.

I am certain there are countless other students who were similarly influenced by this kind and gentle man.

Mr. Robbins was "Daddy Ed" to me from elementary school through high school in Camden County. We remained friends for 46 years. I can still see the proud look on his face when his students performed well. He left an indelible impression on the lives of the students of small-town Georgia, encouraging us and inspiring us to do more than we imagined we could do. He will live on in our hearts forever. I regret that I learned of his passing only in the past week. I would have treasured the opportunity to be at his service and to visit with family members. You are all in my prayers as you mourn the loss of someone so dear.

Mr. Robbins was so much of an influence on my life. I first met him as my 8th grade Georgia History teacher in 1962 at Camden High School in Woodbine. Through my time at Camden High he instilled in me a love of theatre and a love of music. Those gifts from him have enriched my life beyond belief and I am so thankful for all of the kind and caring things he did for me as well as all the other students he taught as well as mentored.

Mr. Robbins played a great role in my life. He began teaching our group of kids in 6th grade and remained in Camden Co. until our class graduated. I know I am not alone as one who looked forward to seeing him at our reunions. The world is a better place because of his influence on so many.

Ed Robbins was truly one of a kind! I was blessed to know him as a teacher, mentor, and friend. I shall forever treasure the many fond memories I have of Ed and Cordie, and look forward to seeing them again one day when we, too, "have shuffled off this mortal coil." Ed Robbins was greatly loved, and will be as greatly missed by the community to which he has given so much over the years.

I had an awesome high school Speech teacher, later my daughter, Crystal, was fortunate to be a part of the Lamplighter Lighter Theatre as a student and more recently he was an awesome neighbor! "Rest in Peace" Mr. Robins, Wheeler County will miss you!

Mr. Robbins had a tremendous impact on my life as a friend and a school teacher. He always had a cheerful smile and always had a positive word to say. He was never negative which made an everlasting impression and was always supportive and encouraging. It was an honor to have been one of his students and friend. I will sincerely miss him; however, death is only the beginning of a new life for those who have accepted Jesus as their savior, believed He died for our sins and rose again on the third day. I truly believe I will get to see him again as I know he watches over us as he always did in school. May God Bless You and Keep You Mr. Robbins as I know you are sitting at His right hand in heaven!! Our prayers go out to Mr. Robbins family. May God Bless You and Give You Strength, Peace and an Abundance of Joy!

Mr. Robbins had a huge impact on my life! At an early age, my parents enrolled me in The Lamplighter Little Theater. I spent 12 years of the most enjoyable times of my life there. Mr. Robbins taught me so much about theater, oratory prep and served as a great mentor, counselor and FRIEND. He always expected the very best of me as he knew my potential far better than I..... and I would work very hard and even jump over the moon, if I had to, in order to not disappoint him.

But, you see, I wasn't the only student that he gave so much of his life too--- he did all of his students this way. Mr. Robbins has touched the lives of so many -- in such huge ways. Yes, he was an individual that so many only can ever "hope" to be like. He will always hold a very special place in my heart and will continue to bring a smile to face when I reflect on those wonderful years.

Mr. Robbins was a very interesting person to talk to. He was very intelligent and I have missed seeing him at the Benton House. He will be remembered by all.

Mr. Robbins was a very unique and talented man that gave a lot to the kids growing up in Alamo and Wheeler County. I was fortunate to have stayed in touch with him beyond high school. He will be missed.

I am sorry to learn of Mr. Ed's passing. I first met him when he came to programs at the McRae library and it was always a pleasure to greet and talk with him. He and Mrs. Cordie were true assets to the community and I know he will be missed as much she has been. Please accept my deepest sympathy in your loss.
