Josiah Dwayne Michael Robinson Obituary
Josiah Dwayne Michael Robinson, 5, passed away Dec. 21, 2013, at Providence Children's Hospital in El Paso. He was born July 10, 2008, in Winslow, Ariz., to parents J. Wesley and Priscilla Robinson.
Josiah's family and friends feel blessed to have had Josiah for 5 miracle years. Josiah had a love for life and people and always seemed to know when they needed to be loved. From early on, music was an important part of Josiah's life. It calmed him when he was very sick and no one was a stranger when he wanted to "sing" a song like Itsy Bitsy Spider. He especially loved listening to or playing on the piano.
Josiah enjoyed many things such as listening to anything with a motor, flipping light switches, flushing toilets and flying through the house on chairs with wheels. Josiah struggled with hearing loss. A whole new world opened up for Josiah when he discovered sign language. He watched signing programs by the hour and was beginning to be able to express desires and needs to those around him.
Recently Josiah started preschool. He loved going to school and didn't want to leave.
He is survived by his parents Wes and Priscilla, brothers Jaysen, Jonathan and Jordan Robinson; his maternal grandparents David and Mary Lawrence, of La Luz; paternal grandparents John and Laura Robinson, of Boles Acres; uncles and aunts Michael and LeAnna Lawrence, of Alamogordo, Jason Lawrence, of Yuma, Ariz., Pawel and Michelle Nowacki, of Brunswick, MD, Kimberley Robinson, of Las Cruces, and James Robinson and Michelle Magnone, of Capitan; cousins Jacob, Matthew, Gabriel, Luke, Daniel and Ezekiel Lawrence, Breanna and Courtney Nowacki, and Destanie, Desarae and Donoven Robinson; great-grandparents Phyllis Lawrence, of Ramona, Calif., and Glen Fifield, of Kerrville, Texas; and a host of extended family and friends.
Josiah is preceded in death by his Aunt Carrie Lawrence.
Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 28, 2013, at First Assembly Worship Center with Pastor David Crispin officiating.
Interment will follow at Monte Vista Cemetery.
Pallbearers are Michael and Jason Lawrence, Pawel Nowacki and James Robinson.
The family will greet friends from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 27 at Hamilton O'Dell Funeral Home.
The Robinson family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Hamilton O'Dell Funeral Home to direct the funeral services.
