Greg was born to W. Thomas and Lorena Robinson in Peru on February 28, 1964. Greg grew up on his family farm in La Salle. He enjoyed helping on the farm, trapping, hunting, fishing, riding horses, 4H and hanging out with friends. After high school, Greg went through the electrical apprenticeship, while going to night school for his associate degree at IVCC. After becoming a journeyman electrician, he followed Phyllis to Northern Illinois University where he received his bachelor’s degree in marketing in 1989. Following his degree, Greg accepted a position with Steiner Electric, where he proudly served for nearly 32 years as a successful account manager. On November 25, 1989, Greg married his wife Phyllis Marie Sale in Peru. Greg and Phyllis moved to Sycamore in 1990 and were blessed with two children, Brandon Gregory, and Catie Lynn.
Greg was a rock to everyone in his life. He was the hardest working, most caring and loving person anyone could hope to know. Greg had a love of outdoor adventures including hunting, fishing, skiing, snowmobiling and hiking. He shared that love with his wife and passed it along to his children. Greg and Phyllis acquired a cabin in Wakefield, MI in 2007 where they enjoyed all of these passions as well as frequently entertaining friends and family.
Greg was preceded in death by his father W. Thomas Robinson.
Greg is survived by his wife Phyllis (Sale), his Son Brandon (Emily) Robinson of Brooklyn, WI, his daughter Catie (Ryan) Stoos of New Lenox, IL, his mother Lorena Robinson of La Salle, IL, his brothers William Robinson of Zionsville, IN, James “Barry” (Lorraine) Robinson of Westlock, AB, CA, and Richard (Elaine) Robinson of La Salle, IL.
