Obituary

Cuba City, Wisconsin

Thomas H. "Jack" Robson, 94, of Cuba City, Wisconsin, died Saturday, February 9, 2019, at Southwest Health in Platteville. Services will be 10:30 a.m. Thursday, February 14, 2019, at Casey Funeral Home & Cremation Services in Cuba City with Pastor Calvin Hughes officiating. Burial will be in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery with military honors accorded. Friends may call from 3-7 p.m. Wednesday and 9-10:15 a.m. Thursday at the funeral home. The family would appreciate if you wore your favorite sports team apparel for both the visitation and service.

Jack was born on December 2, 1924, the youngest of eight children, to Templeton and Jessie (Wright) Robson. At the age of eight his father died leaving his mother to raise the family during the depression. Jack always looked up to his older brother, Bill, as a father figure. Jack was a great athlete growing up. In September 1942 at the age of 17, Donald Birkett, Clifford Steinhoff and he left school and walked to Platteville and enlisted in the war effort. He laughed about having to walk both ways. Jack was awarded his diploma some 60 years later. On his 18th birthday he found himself in a fox hole half way around the world on the South Pacific Island of Paleliu. He said the farthest he ever traveled from home was Madison one time. After the war he came back to Cuba City and married the love of his life, Patsy Birkett. They were married 63 years before her death in 2009. He went to work for John Deere Tractor Works. His first job there was roofing one of the original buildings and he stayed on for 37 years. Jack loved to hunt and fish. He played fast pitch softball on several local teams. Jack met his second true love when they opened Cole Acres Golf Course. He could be seen as the first one on in the spring and the last one off in the fall. He had six holes in one and at least four more that he didn't count. He was a true blooded Cuban Fan. If he was poked he would have bled gold. Pat and he could be seen at all sporting events, home and away. The weather didn't stop them. After Pat's health failed, he still attended all of the home events. The last few years he got to follow his great-grandchildren's sporting events. This made him young again. Jack had a special place in his heart for his two cats, Duke and Kitt. Jack was a member of the American Legion Henry Pinch Post #104, Cuba City VFW Post #8318, the Cuba City Fire Department, U.A.W. Local 94 and a charter member of Cole Acres Country Club. To Jack family always came first. He said you are a rich man if you have a good family.

Left to cherish his life are a son, Tom (Mary) Robson, Hazel Green; a daughter, Susan (Tom) Straub, McFarland; grandchildren, John (Renee) Robson, Rodney (Lynee) Robson, Hillary (Eric) McAuliffe, Scott (Lori) Straub, Spencer (Angie) Straub and Andy (Marcie) Robson; thirteen great-grandchildren, Kelli, Katelyn and Thomas Robson, Blake, Drew, and Shayne Robson, Nick Leathy, Macie, Cody and Brooklyn McAuliffe, Julian Straub, Karolyn Straub, and Josie Robson; a brother-in-law, Paul Birkett; and a sister-in-law, Margaret Birkett.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Pat; parents, Templeton and Jessie; a special grandson, Sam Straub; sisters, Virginia Hieser, Edna (Guerdon) Snider, Isabelle (Joe) Bowman, June (Robert) Fox, brothers, Clifford, William "Bill" (Helen), Templeton, his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Homer and Lois Birkett; a sister-in-law, Mary Ellen Birkett; and a brother-in-law, Ronald Birkett.

Jack had a saying, "Life is like the game of golf. The Good Lord will let you borrow it, but he won't let you keep it."

Robson family, I was deeply saddened to hear of Jack's passing. I have fond memories growing up on the fairways of Cole Acres where I played many rounds with Jack. He truly had a heart of gold.

Dear Robson Family
I had full intentions of coming to the wake service today, but the flu bug has had me down for a couple of days, so I thought I should stay away. Just want to take this opportunity to express my deepest sympathy in the passing of a wonderful man. I will always cherish the times that we played golf together at Cole Acres every morning in the summer. He was a pleasure to be around. Sue I know I told you this once, but want to share it again with everyone in your family. One day I was playing terrible (most days) and I said to Jack, "Can you give me some advice?" and he said sure, "Next time you go to Dubuque take your clubs with you, stop on the bridge and through them in the Mississippi River and quit." He told me that God could not help me. I loved that guy!! Every time I would officiate a Cuba City basketball game he would hunt me down the next day at work and commence to telling me I only missed about 5 or 6 calls. Again my deepest sympathy to all of you and may one of the greatest guys I have ever met RIP
