John Robson

26 June 2013

As many of you will now be aware John Robson sadly passed away last weekend after a sudden and fatal stroke.

“Robbo” as he was known to us was a lifelong member, Vice President of the Club, former long standing Committee Member and ever present in the umpiring volunteer rota. He will be greatly missed by us all.

“Robbo” was and will remain in our hearts and thoughts as a Richmond man. He was always ready willing and able to offer support guidance and assistance to everyone from the top to the bottom of the Club and did not shy away from uncomfortable or tricky discussions particularly at Committee level. During the writers time at the Club “Robbo” served both the Deerstalkers and more recently the Redoubtables with the commitment and dedication that one would expect from a lifelong servant of the Club and can hope for from future members.

Details of the Service of Thanksgiving are set out below and we are invited back to the Orange Tree afterwards.Service_of_Thanksgiving_Directions-page0001
