Randy Robinett

Robert "Randy" Andrew Robinett, 76, completed his earthly journey to be with God on July 7, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Mr. Robinett was born in Norfolk, Virginia, to Marshall E. and Ruth Robinett on Nov. 26, 1942.

He graduated from Tennessee High School in Bristol, Tennessee, and received a scholarship to play football for Virginia Tech University. He graduated from East Tennessee State University. 

After 36 years in the automotive aftermarket industry, he retired from the Dana Companies. He served on the deacon team and was a member of the Barnabas Sunday School Class at Brentwood Baptist Church.

Randy was an avid sports fan and loved to take cruises. He thoroughly enjoyed his Mapco Coffee Club, the Legends Ball Picking Crew and being a papaw.  

He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Sandy Robinett; daughter, Traci (Brian) Calhoun; son, Bert (Chantel) Robinett; grandchildren, Gabe and Genevieve Robinett, all of Brentwood; and sisters, Marshall McCorkle and Betty Robinett of Virginia.

There will be a private burial for the family, the F and M deacon teams and the Barnabas Class at Williamson Memorial Funeral Home.

All are invited to honor Randy’s life at Brentwood Baptist Chapel, where Gayle Haywood will conduct his service at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 9, 2019. Visitation will begin at 12:30 p.m., and a celebration of his life with an ice cream social will immediately follow.

A special thank you is offered to Dr. Natalie Spradlin, the team from Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center and Alive Hospice. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude’s Childrens’ Hospital and Brentwood Baptist Church’s Hope for the World Fund.
