While pursuing his undergraduate studies, he worked first in a greenhouse, next as a math and science tutor, then as a hospital based pharmacy technician.  Upon finishing undergraduate studies, he worked in hospital laboratories in Indiana, New Mexico, and Alaska.  After that, he worked in industrial settings in Indiana.

 

John was the eldest of four sons who also loved hiking and goats.   John is survived by his parents, John Robertson Sr. and Tammy Robertson, both of Berrien Springs; and his younger brothers, Dr. Timothy Robertson of Knoxville, Tennessee, Tobias Robertson of Knoxville, Tennessee, and Phillip Robertson of Berrien Springs.
