Scott “Scotty” Christopher Robinson 1981 – 2016
Our beautiful son and brother passed from his earthly home Wednesday night from an accidental prescription drug overdose. If you haven't dealt with someone battling an addiction you may not understand and might judge. We need to speak up about the epidemic tearing apart families and destroying our communities. Our family is not alone in this. Scott loved Mother Teresa quotes and gave me a sheet of them long ago. This is one for this situation: “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” Scott was handsome, intelligent, and enjoyed writing poetry. He was raised in a loving home and loved both his work and co-workers. His inner struggles and later a back injury turned him to prescription drugs. Our love wasn't enough to save him from the true addiction he could not overcome. To all children, turn to those who love you if you are struggling. To all parents, watch your children's behavior, and be aware of and try to avoid putting your children on prescription drugs. Scott's battle has ended. He was a baptized Christian who knew the Bible. God knew his struggles and his true heart away from his addiction and has allowed him to enter his new home in Heaven. He is at peace. Scott loved to help others and wrote these words on his way to work last August thinking of his patients. “There have been times that I've wondered why God doesn't send his angels to help us when we need them the most. But I realized today that sometimes you just have to be one.” – Scott Robinson
Scott leaves behind his loving friend, Leah who always loved him no matter what; his father, Don; mother, Janet; and brothers, Brandon and Nick Robinson.

I was a patient at the practice where Scott worked. I think of him often. He was a very kind, sweet young man. I really enjoyed getting to know him. The tribute to Scott in the office is beautiful and brings tears to my eyes every time I see it. But also a smile.

I just found out about this tragic loss of a beautiful life. I worked with Scott and he was such a good person. His number still in my cell phone. I am sooo sorry for your families loss. May you find comfort in knowing he touched lives and was well thought of. My memory of him will remain that of a great guy who I hired and enjoyed working with at the beginning of his career. Prayers for your family

This is Janet Robinson. Scott was my son. I want to thank everyone who left their thoughts, prayers and memories of Scott for our family on this site. They gave us peace and helped us through this trying time. I loved hearing from Scott's patients. He always told me, "My patients love me." He was special and is missed. Sorry I was late doing this and hope some of you find this note of thanks. Love, The Robinson Family.

Although it has been a while since I had the pleasure of talking to Scott, I attended college with him and he just was an amazing person. I very much remember him expressing the pain he was going through at the time with training, and it breaks my heart to see how much of an impact it ended up having after we graduated and parted ways. Words cannot express how tragic his loss is to all, and my deepest sympathies are with your entire family during this very difficult time.

Although I did not know your loved one, my heart breaks for you and your family. As a Chemical Dependency Counselor's Assistant with Quest, I know first-hand how the opioid epidemic impacts our families and communities. As you so eloquently wrote in Scott's obituary, "We need to speak up about this epidemic tearing apart families and destroying our communities." There is no shame in his passing; only an opportunity for all of us to awaken to this scourge and find new ways to combat it before another family, another community, is burdened with grief. God bless you all and may He give you peace and strength. Amen.

Although we don't know each other, I share the love and concern you have for your son, as every mother does. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies on your loss. Your courageous words about his struggles will undoubtedly help others in similar circumstances. May God comfort you just as He embraces your son.

Scotty was a good man. I enjoyed when he would stop by and say hello if I was working in the yard. I was proud help and see him compete in the Mr. Canton. I recently saw him at the store and had the pleasure of introducing him to my newlywed wife. This breaks my heart. Condolences to his loved ones. May the Lord heal your hearts. Fly high buddy. God Bless you.

I want to let you know how sorry I am for your loss. I knew Scott when he worked at my dialysis center because I was one of his patients. He was so kind and caring to everyone, especially his patients. He always talked with me at every opportunity. We had a lot in common and I considered him a friend. I knew of his struggles and understood what he was going through because I had friends and family that struggled the same demons.
He left behind a lot of friends and family that loved and cared about him. But now I believe he's made it to the Lord where now he can be at peace and not hurt. I wish your family well and remember him when he was happy

So very brave and honorable of you to write this. I do not know you, but my thoughts and prayers are with your family. I lost my father March 1st to an accidental overdose and have learned in my 26 years how terrible this disease is. May you find peace in knowing that Scott is no longer struggling and he is finally at peace with his Father in Heaven experiencing more joy than any of us left behind can imagine. May God Bless you all.

I do not personally know Scott or his family, however I share the loss of a loved one to a prescription pill overdose. I lost my 68yr old Mom to the same thing in 2014.

Robinson Family,
I did not know Scotty but your story has touched my heart. My words are not adequate to express the sorrow I feel for your loss. Losing a child is a pain I could never imagine. I ask for God's blessings on you and that you find the courage and strength to move forward in peace and confidence. Please accept my deepest condolences on your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
March 29, 2016
I do not know you or your family, but I commend you for speaking of your sons addiction. I continue to read about this epidemic and have some friends going through hard times with members of their family. I hope more people take the time to read this and really take note when they feel a loved one is not quite the same. I am sure you did everything you could, and now letting others know more about this addiction you will continue to help other families.

Scott, we love you and cherish the time that you got to be a part of our earthly family. You were a "Good and Faithful Servant" in your discipleship and now God has welcomed you into his Mansion. Janet and Don you were loving caring parents and raised a sensitive, loving caring son. His life was our lesson - let's hope many learn to become that angel! Love Aunt Annette and Uncle Jerry

I do not know Christopher or his family, friends,etc... But I do know my heart breaks for all who knew and loved Christopher .
My son is an addict and battles with his addiction every minute every hour of every day.
He wants to be clean but this awful addiction grabs hold and takes control of your mind , body, and soul. It is not prejudice of skin color, sex, age, religious belief or how rich or poor you may be. Because it will take control and own you.
I'm very thankful that Christopher's family is not ashamed of what took his life, and shared the truth for awareness to hopefully help others in this horrible epidemic of prescription drug addiction and these drugs leading to street drugs.May Christopher be free now and whole again and may he be in peace forever more.

I thought I recognized your son by the picture on the obituary, but turns out I never got to meet him while he was on earth, but after reading the obituary I had to send you a message. It was well said about not judging others. May your memories of Scott give you peace.
March 29, 2016
Didn't know Scott or members of his family but wanted to say Thank-you for your honest sharing about your loved one. May God Comfort you at this time of sadness and May your heartfelt words help someone else with the trials of addiction.

I do not know you nor did I know your son.I am so very sorry for your loss and your pain!
You are so right however in your words con-cerning pain, both physical and mental pain.
We need to look around us everyday and show compassion and love to our fellow man. We never know when something we say may touch a life in a positive way.
Please know your son is free from pain and he
would want you to know that.
May the memories you have give you comfort until you are together again. My prayers are with your family.

I am so sorry about your loss. My son as well has a problem and has done rehab 2 times. This is a demon that really needs more attention in today's society. My heart goes out to you and your family. He is now at peace and I was glad to read he he knew God.
March 29, 2016
Don & Janet,

I know I can speak for my late wife Carol as well in extending our deep sympathy to your family. I am sure that her and many other friends and relatives were there to welcome him. I also know you have a wonderful family to help you get through this difficult time,as mine recently helped me.

To the Family of Scott Robinson, I do not know you and my heart aches for you in your time of grief. Thank you for your bravery and compassion for others to speak out on the issues of addiction. We have lost and are losing so many because of something that we just simply cannot understand--the why, the how, the when? Wondering if there was something that we could have said or done differently. And, true, people who have never experienced it from any angle will be quick to judge, but we pray that they never have to experience it. My prayer is that God will lift you up, cover you and keep you as you journey through your grief. That He will give you the strength to go on, knowing that Scott will suffer no more and that he is at peace. May God bless you all. And, again, thank you for sharing Scott's story during your grief in an effort to help someone else.
March 29, 2016
I am so sorry for your loss. Although I do not know the family, my respect for you is immense in that you're working to take the stigma away from the disease of addiction. May God's Peace be with you, your loved ones, and with Scott in Heaven.

I did not know Scott or his family, but I want to thank the Robinson family for sharing Scott's story of addiction. I am so sorry for your loss and I pray for a treatment that prevents more unnecessary deaths. Death from prescription drugs is an epidemic in the U.S. We, as a society, must acknowledge this epidemic and work toward affordable help for its victims. Again, my thoughts are with Scott and his loved ones.

Your courage to speak out is tremendous.If you help one person, one parent, by sharing your son's addiction, and your family's heart break, let that bring you peace. Scott obviously was loved, and if that cured addiction, that would be an awesome thing. God Bless your family.

My deepest condolences to Scott's family. You wrote a beautiful, loving and truthful obituary, which I'm sure wasn't easy. I'm sure many tears were shed while writing it.

I don't know the family, and didn't know Scott Robinson, but I know so many Scott Robinsons who weren't as fortunate to have such a loving, caring family, especially during his struggle with addictions.

I hope you will take comfort in knowing you did all you could do. Thanks for the message to others who might be struggling, and their families.

God bless you and comfort you.
