William Dominic Robinson was called to eternal rest on April 23, 2023. He was born on October 19, 1959 in Florence, South Carolina to the late Arthur Joseph Robinson and the late Maye Thelma Robinson. He was the oldest of four children.
Dom, as he was affectionately called, was educated in the District of Columbia school system and graduated from Wilson High School in 1977. After high school, he attended the University of the District of Columbia.
Dom accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at a young age and was baptized at the Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church in Washington, DC in the early 70s, by the late Reverend Sidney T. Yancey.
Over the years, Dom has never shied away from hard work. He was employed with People’s Drug Store, Lionel Toys, Capitol Nissan, Hechts, Verizon Center and FedEx Field. For 35 years, he proudly served as a letter carrier with the United States Postal Service.
In 1981, he met the love of his life Tracey Proctor and they were married on June 25, 1983. From this union two children were born, Jamar and Ashley. Dom was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, family member and friend.
Whether you called him Dominic, Dom or Neek, his vibrant spirit and infectious smile always made you feel like family. He often had gatherings at his home where all were welcomed. He hosted an annual summer barbecue, as well as the family Christmas dinner. It took Dom a week to put all the Christmas decorations in the yard. He would add 2 or more decorations each year and it was tradition to find the new ones.
When it came to sports Dom was a true Washingtonian. From the Wizards to the Nats and the Caps he loved them all but his true loyalty was to the Washington Redskins (Commanders). He coached his son’s county basketball team and he enjoyed watching sports with his family and friends in his Redskins man cave.
Dom often escaped from the hustle and bustle of daily life with his wife to the mountains of Massanutten. They enjoyed traveling domestic as well as international. But his true passion was cruising. They set sail upwards of 20 times to the Caribbean, Alaska and Mexico.
Left to cherish his memory is his loving and devoted wife Tracey Robinson of 40 years; his son, Jamar Robinson (Annette); daughter Ashley Robinson; grandchildren, Parker and Paxon; three sisters, Sharon Robinson, Sandra Gorham and Shawne Hicks (Gregory); mother-in-law, Hester Proctor; sisters-in-law, Patricia Carter, Elaine Dukes (Larry); one uncle, Bernard Robinson, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Dom will forever be loved and truly missed.
Family and friends will gather for visitation on Tuesday, May 2 from 9:30am, until time of service, 11:00am, at Briscoe-Tonic Funeral Home, 7 Industrial Park Dr., Waldorf, MD 20602. Interment will be private.

Gone way too soon. Dominic has shown me so much love, and I experienced so many firsts because of him, My first baseball game, my first Tailgate party, inviting me to join him and Jamar for their annual Fathers Day tradition at Ole Ebbits Grill, my first Heavyweight Championship fight, where he got us better seats than we purchased. You will be missed.
I’m sorry for your loss
