David Robinson Obituary, Death – Our hearts were overwhelmed with unfathomable anguish when we learned that one of our members had passed away shortly after we received the news. David Robinson. Over the past 41 years, David has focused a considerable portion of his attention and efforts on the sport of swimming. In 1979, when both of his children started taking lessons at the Mildenhall and District Swimming Club, he decided to sign up as a member of the organization. In spite of the fact that he was never a competitive swimmer himself, he participated in a variety of volunteer capacities at the club, county, and regional levels.
In addition, as part of his profession as a referee, he was frequently present poolside at a huge number of competitions. He was a member of the ASA in Suffolk County for a total of 35 years before being elected as one of the first board members to serve on the governing body of the East Region in 2005. During the period that he was associated with both the club and the county, he held a number of positions of authority, including those of team manager, secretary, chairman, and president. In addition to his work as a national referee and a trainer of officials, he served as president of the East Region in 2011.
He has also held the positions of masters manager and records officer for the East Region, secretary and treasurer of the Fenland Swimming League, and vice president of the Mildenhall and District Swimming Club. In addition to his work as a national referee and a trainer of officials, he has also served as president of the East Region. Additionally, he has held the position of president of the East Region in the past. David was honored with the Swim England Alfred H. Turner Award in the year 2020 in recognition of his many accomplishments in the swimming world. Everyone in the world of swimming will miss David very much, and during this trying time, our thoughts are with his family and the other people who were close to him.
