Hampton High School Class of 1962

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

   There is still more sad news today. 
  Robin Lynch Johnson, Hampton High School Class of 1962, wife of Jimmy Johnson ('60) of VA, and sister of Gail Lynch Bradley and of the late Carole Lynch and Bryan Lynch, passed away in Hampton on Thursday, March 23, 2017 just eight days before her 73rd birthday.

 From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 03/26/17, 10:06 AM:

I just wanted to inform (you) that the wife of our (1960) classmate, Jimmy Johnson, passed away on Thursday, March 23, 2017. Robin Lynch Johnson was a beautiful girl and I knew her in college as she was most popular and a cheerleader. My first two years were spent at Chowan College (University) where I became acquainted with her. The obituary is in the Daily Press Saturday, March 25. She graduated from Hampton High School in 1962 and Chowan in 1964. Chowan College was a two year school at that time. Her funeral will be tomorrow, Sunday, March 26 at Grace Baptist Church in Hampton (805 Todds Lane) at 4:00 p.m. with the visitation prior, at 03:00. There was no picture of her in the newspaper, only the obituary.

Best Regards,

Fred Mays of Newport News, VA

   Oh, Fred, I'm so sorry. I had read Robin's obituary, but did not make the connection. My sincerest condolences are extended to Jimmy and his family.

High school days together were so joyful, safe, and secure. You have once again reached a beautiful place. Run free and rejoice in your freedom from all cares as you are reunited with loved ones in The Almighty's kingdom.
With sympathy to your earthly family until you shall all meet again.

Thine Be the Glory

Words by Edmond Louis Budry
(30 Aug 1854 - 12 Nov 1932)

Music by George Frideric Handel, 1747
(23 Feb 1685 - 14 Apr 1759)


Thine be the glory, risen, conq’ring Son;
Endless is the vict'ry, Thou o’er death hast won;
Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
Kept the folded grave clothes where Thy body lay.
Thine be the glory, risen conq’ring Son,
Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won.

Lo! Jesus meets us, risen from the tomb;
Lovingly He greets us, scatters fear and gloom;
Let the church with gladness, hymns of triumph sing;
For her Lord now liveth, death hath lost its sting.
Thine be the glory, risen conq’ring Son,
Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won.

No more we doubt Thee, glorious Prince of life;
Life is naught without Thee; aid us in our strife;
Make us more than conq’rors, through Thy deathless love:
Bring us safe through Jordan to Thy home above.
Thine be the glory, risen conq’ring Son,
Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won.
