ROBINSON K. John Robinson, beloved husband of Colleen Robinson, passed away suddenly on June 3, 2008 at the age of 63. John was born February 19, 1945 in Cobden, Ontario and spent his summers growing up in Tangier, Nova Scotia with his many relatives whom he loved dearly. John and Colleen met in Ottawa in 1972, married in 1975 and together they found adventure and happiness in the N.W.T., Alberta, Saskatchewan and BC. John worked for the federal government in various locations from India and Pakistan to Swift Current, Kamloops and Lacombe. In earlier years you would find John playing fast ball or out on the golf course. He loved remodeling homes and was a great gardener and landscaper. John fell in love with Mexico in 2000, again in 2007 when Rayna and Marty were married and for the last time this January when he discovered the city of his dreams, Alamos. John is survived by his wife of 33 years, Colleen, his step sister Claudette (Paul) Halliday, his two daughters Jennifer (Andy) Thomas and Rayna (Marty) Davis and his two beautiful grandchildren Amber and Logan Thomas. He was predeceased by his son John, whom he will finally meet again at last. John's pride, sense of humour and laughter will be fondly remembered by his family and the many friends he gathered over the years.
