John A. Robinson

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of John Albert Robinson. John passed away unexpectedly at his home in Phoenix, AZ on May 31st, 2019.

John was born on February 15th, 1941 in New York to Joseph and Bertha Robinson, the youngest of eight children. John married Jacqueline Dochterman on August 27th, 1966 in Queens New York and had four daughters. John was preceded in death by his parents Joseph and Bertha, his wife Jacqueline and his daughter Dawn. John was a baseball fan who loved the Mets and Diamondbacks. He was quick with a joke and a smile and loved his family. John’s most treasured times were watching his grandkids grow and being a part of his daughters lives. He was a devout Catholic and was a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. John’s passing will leave a hole in the hearts of those who knew him, but he leaves behind a legacy of love for his family to strive to follow.

John was my father in law. I was privileged to call him that. John was one of the finest fathers I have ever met. He loved his family above all else, and no matter what happened he wanted their happiness above all else. I hope that one day my family will say that I lived up to John’s standard. I never told him but I loved him like a father and I will miss him immensely.

Rest In Peace, John.
