John Robson

John was a long-time resident of Quadra Island and Campbell River and he passed away peacefully in Kelowna, BC. He leaves behind and will be forever missed by his loving wife, June, children John Glenn Robson, Kevin (Roni) Seeley, Craig Seeley, and Colleen (Rick) Tillapaugh along with 7 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his mother, Laura McLean, of Quadra Island.

John spent his working years as a logging truck driver in many camps along coastal BC and enjoyed reminiscing about the good old days. Upon his retirement, John & June moved to the sunny Okanagan. His kind, gentle manner, sense of humour and bright smile will be missed and he left his family and friends with many good memories to cherish.

Special thanks go out to Dr. Bystrom, John’s cancer care team, and the Central Okanagan Hospice House.

In lieu of flowers donations may be sent to the Canadian Cancer Society.
