On Thursday, June 29, 2023, following an extended illness, Chief Danny L. Robinson Sr., resident of New Albany, passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his loved ones. Rev. Jeff Lawrence will officiate a memorial honoring Danny on Sunday July 2, 2023, at 2PM in the Memory Chapel of New Albany Funeral and Cremation Care. Visitation will be from 12 Noon until time of service.
Danny was born June 19, 1957, in New Albany, Ms. and was the son of the late Lee Burton and Dovie Barnes Robinson. He received his education from the Tippah County School System and later graduated from the North Mississippi Law Enforcement Training Center.
On August 31, 1974, Danny married the love of his life Elizabeth. Together they started a family that he so cherished. Danny never missed an opportunity to let his children and grandchildren know how much he loved them and how proud he was of them. He was grateful for his loving wife, who stood by his side and cared for him even when he could no longer care for himself.
For many years Danny was known as "Chief", serving as Chief of Police in Blue Mountain and Sherman, MS. Danny also served Tippah County and Blue Springs as a deputy and officer. He touched many lives during his years of service and left a wonderful legacy for those he leaves behind.
One of Danny's favorite places to visit was the mountains. He never was one to say "no" to a planned or impromptu trip to the mountains. He would often joke with his granddaughter, friends and other family and ask when they were taking him.
Those left to cherish his memory include his loving wife of almost 49 years, Elizabeth Pannell Robinson, two sons, Danny Jr. (Christy) of Myrtle, and Mark (Leslie) of Ripley, his beloved grandchildren Monica, Mark Jr., Isabella, Bethany, and Piper, and his great-grandchildren Brisa, Aiden, Braxton, Gatlynn, Carlie, Easton, and one on the way.
Danny is also survived by his four sisters, Helen Jordan, Shirley Joshlin, Sue Leslie, (Jack), Bonnie Garrison (Charles), one brother Robbie Moore, numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. He is preceeded in death by his parents and eight siblings: Kenneth, Joann, Betty, Benny, Billy, Jimmy, Ricky, and Lisa.
Pallbearers will be Chief Chris Joshlin, Chief Brandon Clayton, Benjamin Yarbrough, Brandon Robinson, Anthony Douell, Dakota Stokes.
Honorary Pallbearer will be Mary Lee Robinson.
