BUCKSPORT - Jeffrey G. Robinson Sr., 70, died July 16, 2012, surrounded by his loving family in Bangor. Jeff was a caring husband, father, granddad and friend that lost his brief battle to lung cancer. He was born June 7, 1942, in Bucksport, son of Norman Robinson and Barbara Harper (Powers). Jeff was married to the love of his life, soul mate and "best friend," the former Nancy Turner for 52 years. He attended Bucksport schools graduating in 1960 from Bucksport High School. He worked several years at Braun's and at Western Auto. Jeff retired after 32 years with Bucksport Water Co. - Aqua Maine, working with Winnie, Clyde, Dave and many others. Jeff volunteered with many organizations and groups, including Bucksport Booster Club during the 1960s holding several offices, and 20 years with Bucksport Area Youth Little League coaching, officiating, and performing clerical duties and grounds keeping.

Jeff enjoyed the early morning coffee sessions with the "boys" at "Micky D's." He also enjoyed playing golf, which he referred to as "taking his clubs for a walk," with the guys. Jeff was a people person; he had a very unique sense of humor and always had a joke or a story to tell.
