West Rockport — John Cecil Robinson, 74, of West Rockport passed away March 26, 2014, after a very courageous 3-and-a-half-year battle with cancer.

He was born July 10,1939, to John and Sadie Robinson in Belfast.

After graduating from Rockport High School, John served in the Army from 1962-1965 stationed in Korea. He then returned home to start his career as a carpenter, which he really enjoyed doing and took great pride in the quality of carpentry that he did. He was a member of the Silver Fox Dance Club and he had a great love and passion for dancing! Also he loved going to the fairs each year to watch horse and tractor pulling. While at the fairs he enjoyed looking at the antique tractors and his favorite fair food, which was fried clams and french fries. In the spring of the year he could be found following the Coast Guard icebreakers up the Kennebec River watching them clear the ice. He also enjoyed spending time at Rockport Harbor admiring the water and the boats.

John is predeceased by his parents John and Sadie Robinson, sister Bertha Bachelor and husband Edwin Bachelor, brother Basil Robinson and granddaughter Randi Lynn Chace. John is survived by his three children Scott Robinson and wife Jill of Warren, Laurie Moulton and husband Ronald of Appleton, and Tina Robinson of Auburn; seven grandchildren, Jayla Robinson of Warren, Nicole Copeland and husband Brett of Rockland, Scott Moulton of Rockland and Shyanne Moulton of Rockland, Ricky Chace of Phoenix, Ariz., Casey Robinson of Camden and Heaven Dow of Auburn and four great-grandchildren Kayley and Hayden Copeland, Nevaeh Howes and Hailey Robinson.

There will be a celebration of his life Saturday, April 19, from noon to 4 p.m. with light food and beverages at the Rockport Masonic Center, 361 Main St. Rockport.

John is the greatest man who came into my life and I have the highest respect for him.  He would give anyone the shirt off his back.  He and I had some really great times and I will miss him.  To Laurie, Tina, and Scott, your father was the best and you were lucky to call him Dad!  To all the grandchilden, you had an awesome Grandpa even though you all cried when you were babies when he held you.  It was very funny at the time.  I am glad to have all the memories with John.  I will miss him dearly.

RIP John. I hadn't seen him for several years, but knew him as a kid growing up in Camden. My sincere condolences to his family.
