To Dr. Robson’s family and friends, on behalf of the United States Submarine Veterans (USSVI), I offer our sincere condolences on John’s passing. You and your loved ones are in our thoughts and prayers. We are forever grateful for Jack's service to our country in the United States Submarine service during WWII. He served aboard the USS (SS-0) and the USS Ray (SS-271).

May you find kindness to warm you, sympathy to comfort you, and cherished memories to bring peace to your heart. To our Brother of the Phin we say, “Sailor, rest your oar. We have the watch. May you rest in peace and may God bless your loved ones who remain. Thank you for your service to our country."

“Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way.”
2 Thessalonians 3:16.

Robson, John , ETMC(SS), US Navy, Now on Eternal Patrol -- Fair Winds and Following Seas to our departed shipmate.

John’s record is posted online in the Eternal Patrol file on the USSVI website.
