It is with a heavy heart that I write this post to inform those who may not yet know that Billy Robinson, a forefather for Catch Wrestling in the modern era has passed away at the age of 75.
Jake Shannon, close friend and biographer of Robinson and founder of Scientific Wrestling broke the news yesterday via Facebook.
I am unbelievably sad to report that my very good friend Billy Robinson passed away today. I hadn’t heard from him in days so I contacted his apartment complex to check in on him. When I called back for a progress report the apartment manager put the police on the phone, it seems he passed peacefully in his sleep. He was a lion of a man, bigger than life in so many ways, my wife and I named our youngest son, Lliam in his honor. You will be sorely missed, my friend. Thank you so much for living the life you did.
Catch Wrestling United would like to offer our condolences to the friends and family of Billy Robinson, who is survived by his son, a Colonel in the US Army National Guard.
