ROBINSON, LEONARD  
LEONARD ROBINSON Leonard Robinson passed away peacefully the morning of Nov. 24, 2016. On a day of giving thanks, those who love him are grateful for all of his 84 years. Born Oct. 21, 1932, in Deadwood, S.D., to Freda (nee Addison) and Clifford Dewey Robinson, his humble beginnings were reflected in the ways he always championed the underdog. He earned his undergraduate degree from Black Hills State College and a master's degree from Northern Arizona University. He served in the U.S. Army for two years at the Presidio in San Francisco. It was there he met his lifelong friend, John Foley, who encouraged his move to Nevada. He began his career as a teacher and later became a principal in the Clark County School District. His first principal assignment was at Matt Kelly Sixth Grade Center, where he was never too far from the students he so enjoyed. His "Tweety Bird" tie was always a hit and his singing on the bullhorn during recess was tolerated. He finished his career as principal of Clark County School District Juvenile Court Schools, once again championing those most in need. Active in politics, he was a founding member of Teachers in Politics (TIP) and he lobbied for education issues in the Nevada state legislature both as a member of the Clark County Teachers Association and the Nevada Association of School Administrators. Governor Richard Bryan declared the day of his CCSD retirement "Leonard Robinson Day" in the state of Nevada. He was preceded in death by his parents; and granddaughter, Kaitlin Robinson. He is survived by his wife, Marjorie Robinson; daughter, Melani Robinson; son, Craig Robinson (Dana); his beloved granddaughters, Morgan Miller, Chelsea Miller, Kristin Robinson and Sophia Robinson; as well as his brother and best friend, Loyal "Corky" Robinson (Ruth). He loved life, enjoyed every moment and laughed as often as possible. He touched so many with his kindness and compassion. At the age of 70, Len had the honor of being a torchbearer in the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Olympics. When asked (given his age), if he would walk instead of run, he replied, "I've got one shot here and want to get it right." Anyone fortunate enough to have known him would agree that he lived all of his life with that goal and there is no doubt, he got it right. The family is planning a memorial service and celebration of Leonard Robinson's life.

PERRIN, VIRGINIA  
VIRGINIA PERRIN Virginia Louise Perrin went to Heaven Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 24, 2016. She was 81 years old. Virginia was born Sept. 13, 1935, in Phoenix, the daughter of Floy Belle and James Krumtum, and sister of Kenneth Krumtum. Virginia was preceded in death by her husband, Frederick Lee Perrin; and and granddaughter, Sarah Anne. Virginia was the beloved mother of five children, Regina Sardina of Las Vegas, Douglas Wells and his wife, Linda, of Brentwood, Calif., Dayna McGregor and her husband, Donnie of Grass Valley, Calif., David Wells of Las Vegas, and Nicole Perrin of Las Vegas. Virginia is also survived by 10 grandchildren, Anthony, Jack, Nick, Jessica, Colin, Melissa, Kyle, Cole, Gage and Evan; and three great-grandchildren, Taliyah, Satiyana and Daisy. Virginia spent the earlier part of her life growing up and starting her career as a telephone operator with the Mountain Bell phone company in Phoenix. She later relocated to San Diego, where she continued to work at the Pacific Bell phone company until she retired in 1995 and moved to Las Vegas. Virginia will be remembered as an independent and hard-working woman who had a cute sense of humor. She was well-known to appoint her family members with silly and loving nicknames. You could often find her hanging out in her pajamas and watching her favorite movies or reading the Enquirer while drinking a Coke and enjoying some black licorice. She loved her doggies and grandbabies and always spoke to them in her own made up silly language. She wore blue jeans and big sunglasses, swore by Pond's face cream and chose going barefoot over wearing shoes. She was a beautiful woman with few wrinkles even at 81 years of age. In her younger years, she participated on a bowling league and later discovered gardening as a hobby in her retirement. She was one of a kind and will be missed dearly and remembered fondly. Cremation service was Friday, Dec. 3, at McDermott Funeral Home, 2121 Western Ave., in Las Vegas. Celebration of life service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 7, at Mt. Charleston, a place she enjoyed.
