Mr. Robinson was 69 and a lifelong Bridgeton area resident. He was born in Bridgeton and was the son of the Everin 'Chick' and Minnie Faison Robinson.

Tex also was a star on the track, baseball and basketball teams. He matriculated at Temple University in the ROTC program and was an immediate star on the football field. At left halfback, he twice led Temple in rushing and scoring and also played 'both ways.' He received the prestigious Maxwell Club-Bert Bell Award twice and was named the Brooks Irvine player of the week 'for clean sportsmanship and excellent play.' Always a gentleman both off the field and on, he was inducted into Temple's Hall of Fame in 1980.

Two years later he became the school's first head varsity football coach. Two years later he became the school's athletic director, a capacity in which he served for nearly ten years. He later served as an assistant football coach under his longtime friend, Jon Wuzzardo. His career in teaching started as a health and physical education teacher. He taught both health and physical education at Cumberland Regional and in January of 1997 he retired.
Known as arguably the best athlete to ever come from the Bridgeton area, Tex was a member of the Bridgeton South Jersey Sports Hall of Fame, the South Jersey Coaches Hall of Fame in Addition Temple University's Hall of Fame. In December of 2001 he was part of the first class of inductees onto Cumberland Regional's Wall of Fame.
