Jericho Elias Robinson, 14, went home to be with the Lord on Sept. 17, 2016.

Jericho was a freshman at Ocean Lakes High School and a former student at Corporate Landing Middle School. He enjoyed playing drums with the school bands. Jericho was also a faithful member of London Bridge Baptist Church.

Jericho was preceded in death by his grandfather Eugene Wiggins, and grandmother Rose Alcorn.

He is survived by his mother, Michele Welch, his father, J. Fred Alcorn, and his stepfather, Robert Welch; his grandparents, John and Sylvia Robinson, and Elizabeth Robinson. He left behind six siblings, China, James, Bobby, Trinity, Bella and Jude, as well as very special uncles, Robert Robinson, Danny and Randy Harris, numerous other special loving uncles, aunts, cousins and friends who loved him dearly. All of them contributed the masterpiece that he was.

We will all miss Jericho so greatly. He had a free-spirited and loving heart, that beat to his own rhythm.

A memorial service will be held Saturday Sept. 24, 2016 at 2 p.m. in the sanctuary of London Bridge Baptist Church.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the family, in his name, to the London Bridge Baptist Church Youth Ministries.

H.D. Oliver Funeral Aptartments, Laskin Road Chapel, is handling arrangements. Condolences can be sent here.
