Life Story for Forrest Daniel "Frosty" Robinson
Mr. Forrest Daniel "Frosty" Robinson, age 84, of Bennington, Indiana, entered this life on July 23, 1933, in Cordova, Kentucky, the son of the late, Buford Robinson and Dorothy (Jacobs) Robinson-Creech.

He was employed for Randall's Textron in Vevay, Indiana, for 10 years and for Whitney Chair Factory in Rising Sun, Indiana. Frosty was a self-employed mechanic most of his life and was employed as a mechanic for Kings Island in Mason, Ohio. Forrest enjoyed sitting on his front porch and waving at everyone that drove by. He also enjoyed driving through the country side with his good friend, Earl Morris and his companion: Kathy Scudder. Most everyone that knew Forrest knew not to ask him what he thought because he would sure tell you whether you liked it or not! Sometimes you didn't even ask and he would still tell you! Forrest always spoke his mind and will be deeply missed by his loving family and friends. Forrest entered into rest at 4:09 p.m., Monday, January 15, 2018, at his residence in Bennington, Indiana.
