Robin Nathaniel Hamilton, 53, a lifelong resident of Jackson County, passed into the loving arms of Jesus at his home with his parents by his side on July 15th, 2021. He was loved and treasured by all who knew him.
Robin was born November 6, 1967, to his parents Rev. Johnny and Maxine (Basford) Hamilton. Robin, born with cerebral palsy as a result of an automobile accident that occurred during his mother’s pregnancy, has been an inspiration to all who met him.
Most recently he attended Jackson County Adult Program at Sunland. He was a1990 graduate of Hope School. His favorite activities were shopping trips with his mom and sister, trips to town with his mom and dad, and long talks with his Dad and brothers about current events. He always looked forward to going to his brother Tim’s house and helping Annette do work around the house. He loved to have people come visit him. He enjoyed his television shows, especially cooking shows, Bob Ross and the Brady Bunch. Robin always made sure the van had gas and there was milk in the fridge.
Throughout his life he inspired many with his smile, bright blue eyes and sense of humor. He was a member of Dellwood Baptist Church but attended many churches over the years as his dad was a pastor in the area.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Lorinza “Renzie” and Susie Basford; paternal grandparents, Evelyn and Charity Hamilton.
