Serving the Community Since 1960

Visitation: 5:00 - 8:00 p.m., Wednesday, January 6, 2021

Location: Weymouth Funeral Home

Robin Childers sadly and unexpectedly passed away on Sunday, December 27, 2020 at the young age of 56.  He was born in Alabama, grew up in Newport News, Virginia and was a life-long resident.  He attended Menchville High School and Christopher Newport College. Robin had a successful 30-year career at Anheuser-Busch InBev where he was well respected and loved. He also provided EMT services and training and was able to save a handful of lives because of his training, dedication and influence in health and wellness. Family was everything to Robin and he lived his life daily by following his creed - “Faith, Family, Honor.”

He was preceded in death by his father, James Franklin Childers. Robin was engaged to marry Tina Manglicmot, truly the love of his life.  She brought out the best in Robin and they were looking forward to spending the rest of their lives together. He is survived by his loving mother, Tae Ok Childers; his treasured sons, Spencer and Miles; daughter-in-law, Katlin and soon to-be grandson and namesake, Cooper Robin Childers; his cherished sister, Susan Childers North and his brother-in law, Christopher North and his nephew, Colt North.

Robin was so loved, and he will be desperately missed by his family and friends.  He will be remembered as the life of the party and a man who never met a stranger.  He made happy hour happier, he put a smile on everyone’s face and was quite the dancer.   He had a signature gregarious personality which could charm anyone.  Robin was a perfectionist in the care of his home, car and dashing good looks but more importantly he applied the same level of perfectionism in his personal relationships with everyone around him.  He doted on his mother whom he adored and was so proud of his family’s accomplishments, but especially his son, Spencer’s frequent military promotions, his sister, Susan’s professional accomplishments and most importantly his upcoming grandbaby.

A walk-through visitation will be held from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 at Weymouth Funeral Home.  Guests will only be permitted to walk through 10 people at a time with a mask and observing a 6-foot social distance policy. Due to COVID restrictions, a party to celebrate Robin’s life will take place at a venue and time at a later date. 

The family appreciates the myriad of expressions of heartfelt shock and sympathy.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to An Achievable Dream, 10858 Warwick Boulevard, Newport News, VA 23601, or at www.achievabledream.org in memory of Robin Childers. Arrangements by Weymouth Funeral Home.

We have many great memories of Robin. Strawberry Banks, Mill Point, MidWeek at Oyster Point, Mariner's Museum, Port Warwick and Bone Fish. Always a argument as to who would buy drinks for who. He would always want to buy a round even if you were getting ready to go. He always had an easy smile and a positive outlook. Great times hanging with him. He will be missed. Condolences for his family and fiance. Rest in peace...love to you.

Robin and I worked together at AB. When I first started there he helped me in so many ways when I was trying to learn the job. He was always willing to help when he could and always had a smile on his face when he did. I will miss his smile, laughter, and kindness and wellness to help others.

Robin should have been signing my guest book back in 2015 but thankfully, I lived. I had not seen Robin since 2017 and truly regret not making an effort to visit him. I know he will be missed by practically everyone who knew him. He was a great friend and co-worker. I truly enjoyed working with him. I firmly believe in the bible's promise of a ressurection at John 5:28-29 and look forward to seeing Robin, restored to good health, on earth! Jesus said of his friend Lazarus that he "...has fallen asleep." His disciples thought he meant that he was literally sleeping because he was ill. Jesus finally explained, "Lazarus has died." (John 11:11-14) So Jesus likened death to a deep sleep. Soon, he will call all those, including our dear Robin, in the grave to wake up! I can't wait to see that dynamic personality again! My thoughts and prayers for his mother, sons, in-laws and special thoughts for his fiance and most of all, his grandchild.
