It is with heart-filled sadness that the family of Robin Thompson announce his passing on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Hawaii held a special place in Robin’s heart, particular Maui, to which he and Ruth would travel every winter, and in his early years scuba dive amongst the reefs. For those who knew Robin, he was a loyal friend and while he may be gone from our lives, his memories will last for all eternity with those he loved and those that loved him.

  1. Ralph Hodgins :

    It was with shock and sadness when I read that Robin had passed on. It was in 1965 that Robin was my Best Man at our wedding. I had flown to Vancouver to be Robin’s Best Man when I was urgently called home due to the death of my Father. Although we did not have the personal contact over the last few years, we did have many wonderful years of friendship through activites at the church we attended and at the home of his parents.
    My wife and I extend our sympathies to Lisa and family and know that the wonderful memories you have of Robin will be yours forever .

    With Sincere Sympathy
    Ralph and Gwen Hodgins

  3. Dear Ruth, Lisa and Family
    I was shocked and saddened to hear of Robin’s passing.
    For ten years, Robin’s office at Shell was next to mine and I enjoyed our chats and friendship. Robin was part of our group of retirees who have met for lunch once or twice a year for the past 20 years. He will be missed and remembered.
    Cherish your memories of a great man, soul-mate, Dad and Grandpa.
    My Sympathy, Sandy Riley
