Brent D. Robinson, 76, of Morgantown, passed away on April 8, 2024, at his home surrounded by loved ones. Brent was born in Moundsville, WV to the late Donald and Clarice (DeLille) Robinson on July 8, 1947. Brent attended Moundsville High School and graduated in 1965. After a year at West Virginia University, Brent enlisted in the US Army and served 3 years with the 101ST Airborne, including fifteen months in Vietnam. During his service in Vietnam, Brent received several decorations including the Bronze Star. Brent married Mary Catherine (Cathy) Lenevich on January 2, 1969 and they were married 51 years until Cathy's passing in 2020. Upon his honorable discharge from the US Army, Brent worked as a prison guard at the West Virginia State Penitentiary in Moundsville, while he attended college. He received a bachelor's degree from West Liberty State College and a master's degree from Wheeling College. Brent joined S.R Snodgrass & Company. One of his proudest accomplishments was passing the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) exam on the first attempt, and being named a partner at 27 years old, after only 2 years with the firm. Brent joined Mercantile Banking and Trust in 1978 and would go on to have a very successful 30 year career in the banking industry, working through numerous mergers including Mountaineer Bankshares, One Valley Bank, and BB&T.
