Billy Joe Robinson


Billy Joe Robinson, 79, longtime resident of Bradley County, passed away on Sunday, Dec. 13, 2020.

He was born in Louisville, Ky., on July 25, 1941, to the late John Thomas and Hilda Mae Hall Robinson.

He was of the Baptist denomination and enjoyed blacksmithing, woodworking and collecting many antique blacksmith and woodworking tools. He was a quiet, caring and generous person who loved his family dearly. He was always willing to help others in need, and he often never took credit for what he did — preferring being in the background. He was a true gentleman.

In addition to his mother and father, he was preceded in death by several brothers and sisters.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory his loving wife, Marie Robinson; son, Jody Robinson (Joanie); daughters: Joy Aisthorpe (David) and Kim Crisp (Tim); sister, Helen Helton; grandchildren: Ethan Robinson and Kayla Crisp Hooker; great-grandchildren: Eli Robinson, Nolan Hooker, Nova Robinson, Bria Robinson, Nollie Robinson and Silas Hooker; and many nieces, nephews, and close friends. 

A Celebration of Life service will be held later. 

You are invited to share a memory or a message of comfort with the family at their online memorial at

Companion Funeral & Cremation Service and the Cody family are honored to assist the Robinson family with these arrangements.
