It is with great sadness that we, John’s family, announce his passing on June 24th 2015, after losing his battle with cancer.
He is survived by his loving wife of forty seven years, Mary, along with his three children; daughter Jean Bertrand (Rob), sons Alan (Tammy) and Stephen (Crystal) and granddaughter Lenaya. He is also survived by his brother Len Robinson of Chemainus, BC and sister Nancy Whysker of Victoria, BC, and many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his parents, and his two sisters Queen Savard and Georgina Robinson.
John was a passionate gardener who was on the Garden Tour several times and was well known in Campbell River for his lovely yard with many native plants. He was an avid lover of nature in all its forms, great and small and spent many happy hours taking in its beauty with family and friends while fishing, boating, camping, and hiking all over British Columbia.
John was an enthusiastic, proud Canadian and a great supporter of Canadian sports with a special love for his Vancouver Canucks, BC Lions and Toronto Blue Jays.
At John’s request, there will be no service held, however donations may be made in his memory to the Greenways Land Trust. Donations can be made online at www.greenwaystrust.ca (Beaver Lodge lands).
