    Default Sad Member News To Report

    I'm the son of this forum member and am sad to report that John C. Robinson passed away at 11:35 last night after a two week stay in the hospital. My Dad had battled health problems for many years and this latest round was too significant for him to bounce back from. Three days ago, he made peace with the inevitability of his passing and one of his requests to me was that I let everyone here know. You all probably had a feel for who he was, but above his love for his Corvette and the motorcycles he had, he was a great father and a husband of 51 years. He enjoyed this forum immensely for the camaraderie, the information and the ability to share what he learned. Thank you for being one of the many things that gave my Dad great pleasure during his life. I know he'd want you all to go out and think of him the next time you bury your right foot. -John J. Robinson

    Thanks for posting John. Your Dad was a frequent-posting asset to the CAC. He may be gone, but he won't be forgotten by the CAC community.

    Let's all take a moment to reflect.....

    John was a true gentleman in every sense of the word.

    I was honored to be able to call him a friend of mine.

    I was able to spend time with him and his son. I will never forget his caring, wit & intelligence.

    John loved Corvettes and was always happy to lend his knowledge to those in need.

    I will miss you, John.

    May God bless your soul and may you rest in peace.

    This wave is just for you, John!

    John J, I can only echo what others have said about your father .... He was a man of reason and it was easy to see from listening to him and seeing his posting here at the Action Center that his words were always meant as an inspiration and encouragement to those of us here and in his life.

    RIP JOHN...

    I like that line a lot.

    I will certainly think of him the next time I get the '82 out and bury the pedal.

    My condolences to the Robinson family. As a fellow C4 owner your Dad helped me with several problems I had with mine.

    Seems like we are losing a lot of good forum members this year. I hope the trend does not continue.

    John,

    We appreciate your dad's contribution to our favorite topic. I am sadden for you and your family, for it is hardest on surviving family members, but I hope you find peace in the fact that your dad is in a better place now, and we best honor our departed loved ones by at least preserving and perpetuating one quality he had that you appreciated or at least found honorable. We then realize how much a greater part of them we really are.

    Thank you for honoring his wishes, and I will certainly think of him when I press the gas pedal in my Vette.

    Default Sorry for your loss

    Hi John,

    Sorry to hear about your loss. I also lost my father this year. Sounds like your dad was as passionate about corvettes as mine I'm a new member of the CAC and thankful for all the supporting words of so many members. It was truly the starting point of my healing and hope the same for you.
