The Progress, Friday, March 1, 1918, p. 1:


Death has again visited his heavy hand in our midst and taken one of our best loved and most God fearing citizens. Bishop Almon D. Robison, as he was affectionately called by everyone here, having been bishop of Fillmore Ward for 5 years before he was released on account of ill health, always had a good word for everyone, and many there are who will miss his kindly ministrations, as he had the poor always with him. Besides having held the office of bishop of this Ward, Mr. Robison was vice-president of the State Bank of Millard County at the time of his death, which occurred in a Salt Lake Hospital on Saturday evening last, the cause of death being pleural pneumonia and an abcess of the left lung.

He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Adelia Robison and three children all of Fillmore, they are his son, A. Dee Robison, and two daughters, Evangeline and Hilda, and also by the following brothers and sisters:- Mrs. Birdie Black, of Fillmore, Mrs. Zina Kirkham of Salt Lake, and Mrs. Rose Hinckley of Hinckley, Utah, Mr. Joseph Robison of Garrison, Mr. Bert Robison of Hinckley and Dr. J. C. Robison of Salt Lake City.

Mr. Robison was born December 10, 1869, making him 48 years old at the time of his death.

The funeral took place from the L. D. S. Chapel on Wednesday the speakers being John Cooper, James A. Kelly, Christian Anderson, Joseph D. Smith, and Bishop Day all of whom spoke in glowing and loving terms of the sterling character of the deceased both as a churchman and as a business man.

The opening prayer was offered by Wm. Rasmussen, and the Benediction by Jesse J. Bennett, bishop of Meadow during the services a solo, "Resignation," was rendered by Mrs. Stella Day and a Violin solo by Mr. Thomas Whatcott in a very praiseworthy manner. The children of the Seventh grade showed their love and respect for the deceased by marching to the funeral in a body. The grave was dedicated by Mr. F. Alonzo Robison.

Not only will his family miss him in the many years of loneliness to come, but he will be greatly missed by the host of friends and other relatives he leaves to mourn his loss. But these may be comforted in the thought that he has gone to a far better place than this earth of ours could ever hope to be; that he is not dead but sleeping and on the last Great Day when the Angel of the Lord sounds his trumpet, Bishop Robison will be found in the front ranks of those who are admitted into the presence of the Holiness of the Lord. May his Spirit rest in peace.
