Troutman Pepper Strategies mourns the passing of our friend and founding chairman, Pete Robinson. Diagnosed with bile duct cancer in early June, Pete passed away July 1 at MD Anderson Cancer Center. A partner and friend since 2002, Pete also served as managing partner of Troutman Pepper’s Atlanta office. He will be deeply missed.

Pete was a highly respected leader in Georgia, and finished his career as President Pro-Tem of the Georgia Senate. Gov. Brian Kemp remembered Robinson as “a great friend and a dedicated public servant to the Columbus area and our state.”

“Pete’s decades of leadership in his local community, the General Assembly and various roles since, played a significant role in making Georgia a better place for all who call it home,” the governor said.

A memorial service will be held in Columbus on Friday, July 9, at 2 p.m. at St. Luke United Methodist Church, with the Reverend Thad Haygood, senior pastor at St. Luke, and Elder officiating. Visitation will follow the service in the St. Luke Ministry Center.

In lieu of flowers, the family would welcome donations to the Mike Sabbath Student Support Fund at Mercer Law School via the Office of University Advancement, 1501 Mercer University Drive, Macon, GA 31207. Pete established the fund to provide resources for law students who have a change of circumstances that causes financial distress and potentially affects their ability to remain enrolled.

Donations would be welcomed to the Muscogee County Library Foundation Endowment Fund, c/o Community Foundation of the Chattahoochee Valley, during COVID at P.O. Box 1630, Fortson, GA 31808-1630 or via cfcv.com.
