John was born on July 23, 1940 to his parents, Blanche Estelle and Thomas Hubert Robinson in Fort Worth, TX. John “Ronny” proudly served in the United States Army and from there chose a career as a machinist. He worked many years for General Dynamics (LHM) and later retired from Thacker Industries.
When he was not working, he enjoyed going hunting, fishing, music and cooking. Once retired he still enjoyed doing those things, but adding his grandkids and great grandkids into the mix was the highlight of it all. He was able to teach some to hunt and fish, while teaching some of the others to cook and make jelly. He also tried to show them all how to play the banjo and appreciate bluegrass music. He absolutely loved watching his granddaughter play softball and grandsons play football.
He will be truly and greatly missed by many. He will always be remembered for his corny jokes, singing in every tune but the right one and dancing around like a crazy cowboy. Mostly by how much he loved us.
John “Ronny” was preceded in death by both parents; sister, Mary-Ethel Robinson and brother, Tommy Robinson.
