Kenneth, Arthur ROBINSON

Kenneth Arthur Robinson

1928 – 2017

Ken was born in Birkenhead England and moved to Canada at six months of age. After marrying Elizabeth Kennedy they raised their children in Kelowna and North Vancouver. In the 1970’s Ken returned to UBC attaining a teaching degree.  He and Beth retired to Salt Spring Island in 1992 and enjoyed gardening and travelling. Ken was involved with the Royal Canadian Legion where he enjoyed the meat draws, cribbage, bridge and socializing, acquiring many new friends.  Ken’s interests were diverse including travel, pottery, painting, photography and the computer, he was an avid reader.

Thanks for the memories Dad from your children, you gave us all our sense of humour, a  love of reading and a respect for knowledge. Ken leaves his children; Garth, Garnett (Anne), Chris (Dori), Corlis (Patrick); grandchildren Leigha (Brad), Carly, Alana (Brett), Colin, Elisa; and great grandchildren Elise and Adele.

In Ken’s memory have a cup of Earl Grey tea or a glass of single malt, a dish of ice cream and read a book.

We would like to express our thanks and gratitude to Ken’s friends and neighbours for their support and friendship; to Dr Beaver, to Sarah and the staff at Beacon Community Services, to all the amazing staff at Lady Minto Hospital, and to all the other support people.  Your caring made the difference over the past few months.

A memorial service will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, February 15th from 1-3 p.m.  In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choosing
