Martin Larry Robinson, Sr. also known as BIG M & COWBOY grew up in Jacksonville, Florida and is the son of Samuel Robinson and Ruby J. Clayton-Daniels. He grew up with his beautiful cherished queen and sweetheart Mary Louise Cox, he soon married her and they were together for over 56 years. They were both baptized as Jehovah's Witnesses in the early 70s. From their union, 8 children better known as (Martin's ducks), were produced.
Martin was a man determined to raise all his children which he did successfully. They both named all their children with the initials which matched theirs (MLR) which is something they both were very proud of. He was a successful husband, father, mentor and business owner. He was truly a dedicated family man.
He received his education in the Duval County public school. His passion was painting which he did consistently until he was no longer able to do so. He was well known and respected for his Artistry as well as his sense of humor. No one was a stranger to him; he was a straight shooter and a great friend. He will never be forgotten. As mentioned by one of his sons, “It's like Dad and Mom hid a different kind of jewel in all of us, Love is the very definition of our wealth”. If you can still hear him in your heart, he is not a lost. In the words of Martin Robinson, "We're out! Jacksonville on 4!”
