Robin was born in Vancouver on March 6, 1923, passed away on October 6, 2012 with his wife Jean by his side. Robin grew up in Vancouver with his much loved parents and joined up in World War II and was wounded in Italy. After the war his choice of career had changed- his first love was cars and that became his career for 25 years. In 1970, he moved with his family to Kelowna, B.C. where he enjoyed 41 years of birding and hiking. His knowledge of identification by sight and sound of birds was extensive as was his knowledge of cars. His patience to listen to people was a rare gift and he always saw his friends to the end. He leaves his wife, Jean; son David; daughter, Jennifer Saastad (Wayne); grandchildren, Sondra (Kelly), Jeremy, Timothy; great grandchild, Maddox, brother-in-law-David Ebeling and many cousins and relatives in Britain. A family only funeral was held on October 15, 2012 at the Sylvan Lake Funeral Home.
