In Memory of Jack Robinson

It is with both sadness and joy that we announce that our long-time friend and brother in the Lord, Jack Robinson, has now gone to be with Him.  “Jack  has lost his battle with pancreatic cancer and passed away last night.  Please pray for his wife Sandy and his family for their loss.  We know he is in a better place, and no longer suffering.  Many softball players and managers knew Jack, as he has been a pillar of our church softball league for the last 56 years!  I always referred to him as the patriarch of our league.  He was as fine a christian man and brother as there is.  Jack was 83 years old, and played in our league until he was 72.  For the last 11 years he has been only managing the Gray team from First Baptist of Melbourne. In 2004, we started a new award at our softball awards banquet in honor of Jack, called the “Jack Robinson Award”.  In the coming days, I will upload to the website a section devoted to Jack and his involvement in our church league.”                                                                       –Gary– <><
