Bennell D'shun Robinson was born May 2, 1978 in Greenville, SC to the late Kenneth Robinson and Amanda Gail Cook. He is named after the late Ben Wright (great uncle) and the late Nellie.
He was the biggest baby in the nursery at the hospital as he weighed in at 10lbs 2oz.
As a child he was very active in sports and in church.
In 1983 he received his first trophy for being the bat boy of his uncle’s tee ball team.
He was inspired to go on playing baseball, football, and basketball as a youth. Also at an early age he joined Friendship Baptist Church where he served on the youth usher board and choir. His love for music drew him into taking piano lessons.
In 1996 he graduated from Carolina High School. His wife Kelia Robinson graduated the same year. He went on to Knoxville College to continue his football dream, but from there he decided to come back home and attend Greenville Tech. Bennell realized school wasn’t for him at that time. So he became an employee working various jobs. But he always kept one. He came from some hard jobs paying that paid very little. His most recent work was at Baldor Dodge where he was a CNC operator. He was paid more to do less.
Bennell is a husband to Kelia Robinson and a proud father of four. He realizes that only by the grace of God is he here. He gives all the praise to God for all he has done and will continue to do.
Bennell is a proud husband to Kelia Robinson and father of four beautiful children Shanell, Cameron, Elijah and Naomi.
