Keith Douglas Robinson of San Diego, Calif.

Keith Douglas Robinson, 46, dedicated husband, father and beloved brother, passed away on June 9 in San Diego, Calif. 

Keith was born on Oct. 22, 1965, in Lebanon, to Charles David and Betty Lou Robinson. He was the youngest of six brothers, Stephen, Scott, Michael, Mark and Kevin.

Keith spent his early years in Zionsville, attending grade school there before graduating from North Central High School in in Indianapolis in 1984.

Keith was proud of his service to our country, joining the Navy in 1992 at aged 27 where they always referred to him as the ‘Old Man’. At the time of his death, Keith was an Aircrew Survival Equiptmentman at the Navy’s fleet Readiness Center – Southwest. While boastful about his Naval dedication, he was humbled by those who preceded him; regularly attending services for Pearl Harbor veterans and visiting those battle torn in the Naval hospital.

His Naval career began Dec. 8, 1992 and completed his basic boot camp Feb. 11, 1993. During his extensive years of Naval service, Keith served on the USS Dwight Eisenhower, USS Kitty Hawk and USS Independence. He served his country and Navy in various leadership roles over his almost 20 years of Naval Aviation. Keith supervised and prepared the finest aircraft our military has in its arsenal. His positions included not only overseeing millions of dollars of Naval aircraft like F/A 18 A-F Jets, but also the men and women who worked cared for the air crafts and crews.

Petty Officer Robinson branched out beyond Naval Aviation and reported to SPECIAL BOAT TEAM TWO ZERO (SPECBOATU 20) on April 2, 2000 at Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, Norfolk, Va. There he qualified and served as a Joint Airdrop Inspector and Aircraft Load Planner supporting the training and deployment of Naval Special Warfare Operators, resulting in 1,500 mishap-free parachute jumps overland and overwater, in support of exercises, contingency operations, and clandestine operations in the Europe, Middle East, Asia and South America.
