Robert Wayne “Postman” Poulson, the sixth child born to the late Judson Garrison, Jr. and Lucille Poulson, was born on June 23, 1956 in Painter, Virginia. He departed this life on Saturday, October 3, 2020 at Shore Health and Rehab Center in Parksley, Virginia.

Robert was reared and educated in Accomack County, Virginia. Upon graduation from Central High School, he entered the workforce at Exmore Foods and later at Perdue Farms.

On December 25, 1982, he married Valerie Rogers and their union was blessed with two children, Wayne P. and Robert. His children and family were always a priority for him.

Robert had a passion for painting, cooking, drawing, dancing, and having a good time. He was truly a jack of all trades; there wasn’t anything he couldn’t do, he always got the job done. Robert created beautiful works of art with his paintbrush, which he shared with many. This was his gift from God. He gained the nickname “Postman,” because he always delivered a job well done. He was loved by all, not just for the work he did, but for whom he truly was.

Robert was outspoken, caring, loving, dedicated, a true friend, and so much more. He was also a protector; he made sure no harm or danger came to his children and family. Robert was known for his stylish attire. He often completed his look with sunglasses to make him look extra cool and smooth.

In his youth, he would frequent the local juke joints, enjoying friends and other good company. Robert was a master at playing pool, he knew the game like the back of his hand. Cooking was another pastime, his favorite dish was fried chicken, which he ate everywhere he went. Robert loved to watch his favorite football team, the Dallas Cowboys. He lived his life to the fullest, and that’s on the “Real Real,” as he would say. In later years, he continued to work side jobs, including: Exmore’s Antique Emporium and doing odd jobs with two of his special friends. He could always be counted on to get the job done. His work ethic made “Postman” a true hustler.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his siblings, Judson Garrison, II, Deloris Garrison-Justice, Emerson Poulson, William C. Garrison, Randolph Gunter, Corine Helen Clark, and Kenneth Gunter.

He is survived by his wife, Valerie Poulson; eight children, Kenneth Cutler, Kevin Cutler, Wayne Poulson, Wayne Kellam, Robert Poulson, Ryshekia Smith, Rykeem Smith, and Rykesh Smith; thirteen grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; four sisters, Frances Titus, Vanessa Poulson, Lucille Duffy, and Rebecca Gunter; eight brothers, Leonard Poulson, Larry Poulson, Louis Poulson, Charles Gunter, Avon Garrison, Allen Gunter, Curtis Gunter, and Ned Gunter; three daughters-in-law; and a host of other relatives and friends.
