Subject: Obit: John Robinson (aka JohnInKansas) Apr2014
From: Stilly River Sage
Date: 15 Apr 14 - 12:13 PM

I've had a shock from my friend Phil Doubleu who wrote to tell me that his friend John Robinson, who so many of us rely on as resident techie JohnInKansas died suddenly on April 10 from an apparent heart attack. I am heartbroken to lose this tower of tech information and not infrequent wit.

Just to let someone active at Mudcat know, my friend John Robinson (JohnInKansas) died, presumably of a heart attack, on April 10. I looked on Mudcat this evening and didn't see anything about his passing. No funeral services are planned. Plans for a wake this year at Winfield are being discussed.. - Phil


Here is a link to JohnInKansas posts.

We haven't heard much from Lin in Kansas in a long time, but we're here if she needs us.

He had his own personal book scanning project going that sounded fascinating. I hope all of that work is preserved, I'm sure there was a method to that madness. I think he had scanned hundreds of them that hadn't turned up anywhere else.

Aww, man...another of the folk who was so good for this "place" in every way: all the reams upon reams of technical knowledge generously shared, but none of it quite as valuable as the good-natured tone and the laughs that he contributed.

Thanks for all of it, John; say hello to Kat for us.

I enjoyed his posts a lot -- this was not the sort of surprise I wanted today (or any day, for that matter).

It's all been said before...wisdom and common sense, a strong willingness to help people and offer useful advice, and a lovely sense of humor. Kindness above all -- a trait sorely lacking in too many,.

He will be very much missed here at Mudcat.

My deepest sympathy to his wife, family, and friends.

Didn't read this thread but I will. Saw SRS's news on Facebook and tried to log into Mudcat... a number of times to no avail. I assume it's traffic overload regarding this tragic news.

I always relied on him to answer damn near any question. He was a cool guy, too. When he opened up, his sense of humour was well appreciated. I certainly will miss him. RIP and thanks, JiK. Yer one a the good ones.

Shocked and very saddened. Like so many others have already said, he added much to our community, and well beyond his patient technical advice. Wisdom, no-nonsense kindness, patience and tolerance, a subtle and droll wit. As Mick notes above, insightful and well thought out in all he posted. A builder here, in this community.

My heartfelt condolences to Lin, his family and all who loved him.

If an obituary gets posted somewhere (I've looked but haven't found one) hope some one will post a link.

I'll miss you, John, like many others.

let me share with you, this very sweet letter from John, I hope I sent him an album as requested. he'd just helped me import an address book into my new computer;-

Sorry to take so long to reply, but I've been out doing the family grocery shopping.

No rewards really necessary. Hearing that the problem is solved is reward enough.

We do like to hear good music, though - and especially by 'catters we can't get around to hear in person.

If you're inclined to distribute one of your recordings, we're at:

John A. Robinson
404 Courtleigh
Wichita, KS 67218

(USA, of course)

Should you be inclined to send something, be sure to include your contact info. We can try to play it in the few campgrounds we get to and someone else might want to place an order.

I don't know much about what Int'l postal rates are like, so urge you not to feel obligated if that meter runs up too far.

John
