Scott “Scotty” Christopher Robinson

1981 – 2016

Our beautiful son and brother passed from his earthly home Wednesday night from an accidental prescription drug overdose.

If you haven’t dealt with someone battling an addiction you may not understand and might judge. We need to speak up about the epidemic tearing apart families and destroying our communities. Our family is not alone in this.

Scott loved Mother Teresa quotes and gave me a sheet of them long ago. This is one for this situation: “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”

Scott was handsome, intelligent, and enjoyed writing poetry. He was raised in a loving home and loved both his work and co-workers. His inner struggles and later a back injury turned him to prescription drugs. Our love wasn’t enough to save him from the true addiction he could not overcome.

To all children, turn to those who love you if you are struggling. To all parents, watch your children’s behavior, and be aware of and try to avoid putting your children on prescription drugs.

Scott’s battle has ended. He was a baptized Christian who knew the Bible. God knew his struggles and his true heart away from his addiction and has allowed him to enter his new home in Heaven. He is at peace.

Scott loved to help others and wrote these words on his way to work last August thinking of his patients. “There have been times that I’ve wondered why God doesn’t send his angels to help us when we need them the most. But I realized today that sometimes you just have to be one.” – Scott Robinson

Scott leaves behind his loving friend, Leah who always loved him no matter what. His father Don, mother Janet, and brothers Brandon and Nick Robinson.

A service Celebrating Scott’s life will be held Thursday, March 31, 2016 at 7:30 pm at the Paquelet-Falk Funeral Home in Louisville with Pastor Ryan Rasmussen officiating.  Scott’s family will receive friends Thursday from 6-7:00 pm at the funeral home.  Condolences and special memories may be shared online at www.heritagecremationsociety.com.

    You will forever live in my heart, Scott.

  2. Linda Roth-Harless says:

    God in heaven hear my prayer, keep Scott Christopher Robinson in thy loving care. As He Promised, He Will Do
    John 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”
    Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

  3. Deborah Jusi says:

    Robinson Family, I’m so very sorry for your loss. Thank you for your openness on prescription overdose. Any kind of addiction is an incredibly hard monster. It tears the heart and soul out of not only the person afflicted, but family & friends as well. In your honesty and love, please know that you have/are & will help others in the fight. I hope knowing that can bring you a little peace. Blessings to you all, again, I am so very sorry for your loss.

  4. Sue Heppner says:

    You do not know me nor did I know Scott. I just wish to pass along my appreciation to the family and friends of Scott for the honesty of the cause of death in the newspaper. You will never know how many other families you may touch because of it. Some fine, fine people have been lost to not so fine causes. My sincere sympathy for the loss of your loved one. May memories bring you comfort.

  5. Susan W. says:

    I agree with the two previous writers expressing my condolences, and gratitude for so bravely sharing Scotty’s addiction struggles with the public. My heart raced while reading your description of Scotty’s life as it sounded so familiar. My brother died three years ago from a life-long problem with alcohol – his situation was not the same, but the outcome was. It caused heartache for all involved – including him. Please continue to speak out as an advocate for all those who cannot speak for themselves. May his memory be a blessing to you all.

  6. Cathy Heid says:

    Robinson Family, I am very sorry for your loss. I was one of Scott’s patients. He was always kind and caring. I am deeply saddened by his loss, even more so today as I had my first appointment without him. Thank you for your honesty about his addiction, his struggles, and for your words to both families and children. I will miss him.

  7. Anonymous says:

    What a truly beautiful and heartfelt obituary. I applaud your courage to share the truth. My deepest sympathy to the entire Robinson family.

  8. Mark August says:

    I would like to give my condolences to the Robinson family and apologize that I am unable to make the funeral tonight. Scott was a good friend of mine he always had great words to say to me when I was down. He was very good with his words and could easily make a bad day into a very good one. We lost a very good human being and it saddens me. I would like to tell Brandon I’m very sorry and if you would like to get ahold of me he can. My phone number is 330-309-0218. Scotty will always hold a special place in my heart and he was a true friend.
