Tribute & Message From The Family

Paul Lyles Robertson of Murray, Kentucky passed away Tuesday September 7, 2021. Paul grew up in Murray and graduated Murray High School in 1976. His love for baseball was apparent to all and he was an excellent athlete. Upon graduation he went on to play baseball as a pitcher and short stop for Paducah Community College. He transferred from PCC to Murray State University where he obtained his bachelor's degree in Engineering in 1992. In between his time at PCC and Murray State he obtained an Electronic Engineering degree from the Institute of Electronic Technology in 1986. Paul worked for Murray State University for many years until he accepted a job in Reidland, KY with Camco Technologies. At Camco he used his vast electrical engineering knowledge to build and design batch control panels for companies all over the world. One job even taking him all the way to Australia where he earned the appropriate yet quirky nickname "Sparky". In the early 2000's he decided to open an office closer to home and Automated Industrial Solutions was founded. Paul continued to service the relationships he built while at Camco and performed work for regional barge companies as well.

Paul was an avid Cardinals fan. Every year he would celebrate opening day and avidly followed his favorite team as they progressed through each season. He thoroughly enjoyed music throughout his entire life and especially loved attending music festivals and concerts. His love for classic rock and blues was well known by all. His love for music was passed down to his daughter and grandson. Paul loved the outdoors. He loved camping and spent numerous summer days at his favorite spot the Hillman Ferry Campground. He loved being outdoors, jet skiing, biking, and enjoying a good campfire. He also loved INDY and NASCAR races and often enjoyed several weekends a year attending races with his friends who he loved as family. Paul loved his friends and family deeply.

In addition to his parents, Flavil and Lillian Robertson, he was preceded in death by his brother John and a sister Karen Ann.

Survivors include his children Alecia Howell (Justin) of Jackson, TN and Brian Robertson of Frisco, TX, his sisters Lesa Robertson, of Dallas, TX, Rosetta Todd, of Murray, KY, his two grandchildren Brooks and Greyson of Jackson, TN and several nieces and nephews.
