Will miss his constant smileRIP.

The life of Fred Turner Robinette Jr. is being remembered in Boone this week by many who were fortunate to have known him and his wife, Priscilla, during their years of residency and dedicated service to the community.

Robinette died peacefully on Saturday, Jan. 25, in Bermuda Run following a valiant battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 69.

His many accomplishments include helping found the Yosef Club, the Ambassadors Program, the Annual Fund, the Alumni Travel Program and the local alumni chapters. He led many successful fundraising campaigns for the university and retired as the Associate Vice Chancellor for University Advancement.
