Adrian was born September 22, 1905 at home on a farm near Grenada, MN, the fourth child of John and Emma (Schweppe) Robinson. In the fall of 1915 his family moved to a farm on the Government Road east of Rush City and Adrian spent the remainder of his life in the area. He graduated from Rush City High School in 1925 and then took over the management of the family farm until he opened a Fairway Foods grocery store in town. He joined his father and brother, Kenneth, in Robinson’s Hardware, a well-known name in east central Minnesota.

During an active life he served several years on the Rush City village council, 20 years as president of the Chisago County Agricultural Society, was a founder and director of Plastech, chairman of the Airport Commission, a director of the Black and White show, a breeder’s association, as well as founder and past president of the Rush City Development Corporation and director at First State Bank. After helping start the “Hardware Hand” chain, he served several years in Minneapolis on the board of directors and finance committee at United Hardware Distributing Corporation, its parent corporation. One of his proudest achievements was being able to serve 46 years, retiring in 1988, on the board of directors for East Central Electric Association (now East Central Energy).

Adrian was also a member of First Lutheran Church in Rush City, a past member of the church council, past member of the deacons and the trustees, and former assistant Sunday School superintendent. He and Evelyn were also members at St. John’s Lutheran in Rush City for several years.

On August 3, 1935, he married Evelyn Victoria Larsen, a first grade teacher in Rush City. He always said he was just as much in love with Evelyn now as when he proposed and in August they would have celebrated 65 years of marriage. Adrian and Evelyn adopted two daughters, Karen and Beverly, and were very instrumental in the adoption of their beloved granddaughter, Vanessa Adrienne, born on her grandpa’s birthday in Honduras.

Adrian will be remembered for many things but his devotion to God and his family were first. He lived as he died, quietly and humbly, at home surrounded by those he loved.

He was preceded in death by his brothers, Ray and Milt, and his sisters, Hazel and Mae.

He is survived by his wife, daughters, granddaughter, and his brother, Kenneth.

In lieu of flowers the family requests memorials to the Adrian Robinson Fund at First Lutheran Church in Rush City or to Crossroads, an adoption agency in Edina (4640 West 77th Street, Minneapolis, MN 554345).
