Robertson, John Stanley

Obituary

Robertson, John Stanley was called to his eternal home on September 24, 2020.  The treasure that he was to his family, and the witness for Christ that he expressed daily, cannot be easily put into words.  Outside salvation by our King, our greatest gift was to be able to call him our dad and granddad.

He was born to the late John K. Robertson and Minnie Mae Flippo Robertson on June 4, 1933 in Comanche County, Texas.

In 1951, Stan joined the United States Air Force. It was there he learned the value of discipline, while also discovering his talents in business administration, and as a leader.  All of that would serve him well in his future endeavors.

But God had even more in store for Stan.

It was in the Air Force that Stan met his late best friend in Ned Brown.

Ned was a follower of Christ, and Stan was not.  God began using Ned to teach Stan about his need for a Savior, and in 1959 Stan entered into a relationship with Christ.  That relationship would be Stan’s foundation, and it began a lifetime of service and dedication to the church, and the Lord he worshipped.

Stan’s work career spanned many ventures, from working for Lamar Hunt; to Whittle Construction Company; and many positions within The City of Dallas. His career culminated in 1985, when he became the Director of Streets and Sanitation for The City of Dallas.  As a testament to his business administration talents, the last 3 positions he held required MBA’s, but Stan did not even have a high school diploma!  He loved working with and bettering people and was a major asset to the citizens of Dallas during his career. He retired in 1989, to live a life of golf, traveling, and spending time with family.

God’s greatest earthly blessing to him was his wife of 53 years, Bernay Robertson (Cash). Beyond his personal relationship with Christ, nothing meant more to him than family; and together with Bernay, he was always active in pursuing deep relationships with them.  They were as wonderful of grandparents as has ever been known.  Their faithfulness and dedication to each other, and God, set the example for all their family to see.

Stan was preceeded in death by his wife, Jewel Bernay Cash Robertson; his brothers Garland Robertson, and Gerald Robertson; and his sister Sharon Maxine Robertson Minchew.

Stan is survived by daughter Regina Robertson Meynig (Mark) of Van Alstyne, TX; son Phil Robertson of Gunter, TX; grandson Kirk Meynig; granddaughters Liza Meynig, Elaina Meynig Bryant (Christopher), and Erin Robertson; and great-grandson Noah Meynig.  He is also survived by his sister Carole Robertson Markel; 1 brother-in-law; 1 sister-in-law; 6 nephews; 3 nieces; and numerous cousins.  All were loved by him.  Thank you, our Heavenly Father, for the gift that was Stan.  We anxiously await our reunion with him and our mother.

The family will be receiving visitors on Wednesday, September 30, 2020 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the North Dallas Funeral Home, 2710 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch, Texas 75234.

Mr. Robertson will be interred at the Dallas Fort Worth National Cemetery in private services.

In lieu of flowers, gifts can be made to Gideons International, and First Baptist Church at The Fields.

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

    What a wonderful friend Stan was. Seeing and talking with Stan regularly when he played in North Texas Senior Golf Association golf tournaments was always enjoyable. I’m glad I was able to visit with Stan at his apartment in early March before visitations became restricted. Suzy always enjoyed running into Stan at the grocery store where they exchanged small talk. You were a good man, Stan. You’ll make a fantastic angel. You will most definitely be missed. Rest in peace buddy…

    I met John when we both worked at the City of Dallas. He was a very good friend of mine and I am very sad to learn of his passing. But we will all see him again one day in a place where there is no disease, suffering or pain. If I don’t miss my guess John will be admiring those streets of gold and trying to figure out how to improve them. Condolences to his wonderful family whom he loved very much.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
