Uncle Phil Obit: John Robinson aka JohnInKansas Apr 10, 2014 (114* d) RE: Obit: John Robinson aka JohnInKansas Apr 10, 2014 16 Apr 14

I'm sorry that more of you didn't get to meet John in the "3D world". I've been reading through this thread and see that JohnInKansas was known as a friendly, extremely well-informed and endlessly helpful Mudcatter. My 3D world friend John Robinson was all of those things and much more. He was a delightfully irascible, cantankerous, opinionated old fart, forever curious about everything and forever busy with some project or another. John was my spirit guide to the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas -- he had been going to Winfield for over 3 decades - where he rarely, if ever, went to the stage shows. He loved hanging around the campground with friends and working on campsite improvements with the trailer full of tools he brought to camp. I thought I was a tool junkie until found out that John had a drill press as part of his camping gear. John missed Winfield last year, though Lin did come down for a day. It wasn't the same without them. I hope the plans for a wake for John at Winfield work out. He would love it.

John, Lin and I have posted hundreds of photos of Winfield over the years. Out of those hundreds of photos, the only he ever asked for a copy of was this one...
