John Morgan "Nemo" Robinson, a retired operator of a Chesapeake Bay summer resort and decorated World War II veteran, died Saturday of a heart attack at Anne Arundel Medical Center after undergoing brain surgery a week earlier. The Severna Park resident was 90. Born and raised in Catonsville, he was a 1938 graduate of Catonsville High School and spent another year at Polytechnic Institute. He gained the nickname Nemo as a child because he had long blond curls like a lion in the "Little Nemo" comic strip.

Heads turned as John Robinson drives his diminutive Smart car along U.S. 1. Is it a shrunken minivan? An oversized Hot Wheels? The University of Maryland professor pulls up alongside a sport utility vehicle, and lengthwise, the Smart was about a third of its size. A construction worker gazes so intently he almost walks into a moving crane. Another driver whips out his cell phone camera to shoot the tiny vehicle. Robinson smiles. He seems to enjoy the attention generated by his car - which at just over 8 feet long is 4 feet shorter than a Mini Cooper - so much so he no longer bemoans that it took seven years to secure one to use in this country.

Thomas F. Robinson looked quite at ease in his red plaid suit and top hat as he tickled the piano keys. And he always seemed to get a few chuckles when he told his jokes, many with but marginal humor.But he was an entertainer, and if just one person who saw or heard him laughed or relaxed or forgot their troubles for a few moments, he was happy."He tried as best he could to always make everyone happy," said his daughter, Christine Peery of Severna Park. "And he was usually able to do it. He got in front of people and performed as best he could."
