Harold G. Robinson, of Charlestown, Duxbury, and most recently of Woburn, entered into eternal life on Tuesday, August 9, 2022 at the Winchester Hospital. He was 87 years of age.
Loving son of the late James and Veronica (Nolan) Robinson. Dear brother of the late James, William, Joseph Robinson, and Virginia McGonagle. Survived by his loving nieces Peggy Dwyer and her husband Jack Dwyer of Peabody, Patricia Allen and her partner Gary DellaPaolera of Billerica, as well as many other nieces and nephews.
Harold was a devoted Boston Public School Teacher for over 30 years at the Warren Prescott School in Charlestown. There he fostered the thrill of learning and importance of dedication to be the best you can! So many of his past students have kept in touch over the years and for that he was grateful. Following his retirement from Boston Schools, Harold was blessed to fulfill his dream of working trains! He took on the role as a train conductor/tour guide at the Edaville Railroad in Carver, MA. His days there were his happiest. His motto was "Do what makes you happy and you will never work a day in your life"! Over the years in Duxbury and at Edaville, he met some amazing and very special friends. He cherished his visits with them!
He had a passion for saving and caring for animals and devoted his time at Standish Humane Society and was so happy to care for his "little friends" there. But his truest friend that has been by his side in the last few years was his cat Josephine, the light of his life.
Harold was blessed with the opportunity to be part of Benchmark Senior Living of Woburn for the past 4 months. He had the opportunity to meet new friends and have some exciting experiences thanks to the wonderful staff.
Harold will be remembered for his steadfast faith in the Lord, his zest for learning, his wonderful sense of humor(yes, even his silly jokes!), his appreciation for a good home cooked meal(especially seafood), his obsession with "retro candy bars", and last but not least his love for the "classiest team ever"....the Yankees!(Dont kill the messenger!)
Relatives and friends are invited to attend Harold's visiting hours on Wednesday morning, August 17, 2022 in The Carr Funeral Home, 220 Bunker Hill St. Charlestown from 8:30 A.M. to 9:30 A.M. followed by his Funeral Mass at 10 A.M. in St. Mary's Church, 55 Warren St. Charlestown. His burial will follow at Mayflower Cemetery in Duxbury.
