Frank W. Robinson, a retired insurance executive and longtime volunteer, died Thursday at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. The Towson resident was 87.
Mr. Robinson worked for Maury, Donnelly & Parr, a Baltimore insurance firm, for 49 years. He began as an office boy and retired in 1978 as a vice president.
Born in Baltimore, Mr. Robinson was raised in his early years in Accomac County, Virginia. His family later moved back to Baltimore, and he graduated from City College.
Mr. Robinson met his wife, Edna J. Wernsing of Baltimore, at a dance. They married in 1940. Mrs. Robinson died in 1990.
Mr. Robinson was a member of several business organizations. He was secretary and president of the Binders Club and a member of the Insurance Roundtable and the 33 Club. After his retirement, he volunteered as a driver for Meals on Wheels for 18 years.
"He was very proud of doing this," said a daughter, Barbara R. Dixon of Timonium. "He was a very giving person."
Mr. Robinson was an avid photographer and rode his bicycle into his 80s.
He was a member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Roman Catholic Church, 8501 Loch Raven Blvd. in Baynesville, where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered Tuesday at 10 a.m. Burial will be at New Cathedral Cemetery.
In addition to Mrs. Dixon, survivors include a daughter, Mary Joyce Pansini of Towson; four grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
