At 4, he is well aware that his time on Earth will end soon and so he has come up with a unique bucket list of things he wants to accomplish before passing. The final item on list could only be accomplished recently, on his funeral. Family and friends said goodbye to Jack in a unique Star Wars-themed funeral, the final item on his bucket list.

Jack’s parents. Terence and Marie Robinson wanted to celebrate their son’s life and passions by completing his bucket list for him.
Jack’s white carriage was covered with floral tributes, including one that says “Jedi” as well as lightsaber-shaped wreaths and ones that look like Yoda and R2-D2. Other Star Wars fans dressed as Stromtroopers and acted as guards of honor.
Later on at the church, a brass band played the film’s The Binary Sunset song, which is known as Luke Skywalker’s theme. The order of service also read: Master Jack Robinson, joined the force 1st April 2014.
In an interview, Jack’s father was quoted as saying, ” Jack was a special boy, he was unique and brought everyone together. We needed to give him a unique send off, and the brilliant sunshine that came out for it was Jack looking down on us.”
Jack was also a massive Doctor Who fan. Matt Smith, the show’s star, has sent a lot of personal messages from the United States, as well as sang the Doctor Who theme tune for him be fore he passed away in the hospital.
