ROBINSON LAWRENCE

ROBINSON, LAWRENCE (LARRY / GUS) JAMES

Born October 10, 1937 in Berwyn, Alberta and passed away on January 24, 2015. Predeceased by his parents Orville and Velma Robinson. Larry was raised in Ocean Falls, B.C. and also met his wife May there. They were high school sweethearts and married on June 28, 1957.  They raised 3 children, Dean (Sigi), Rhonda (Gary) and Audrey (Donna) and have 4 grandchildren, Brittany, Zach (Morgan), Amy (Rob) and Gare. They had just celebrated the birth of their first great grandchild, Benjamin. He was also survived by one brother Lloyd (Agnes) Robinson in Abbotsford, BC. Dad was a proud father, father-in-law and grandfather. He supported his children and grandchildren in every endeavour and dream that they had. He was always our number one fan. Larry loved to tell jokes and had an incredible sense of humour.  His integrity and strength of character is evident in the amazing number of friends he has left behind. Larry worked in the pulp and paper industry in Ocean Falls, BC, Campbell River, BC, Prince George, BC, Mackenzie, BC, Prince Albert, SK and Whitecourt, AB. He retired from the mills in 2002 and then he and May embarked on another career, owning and operating a taxi business in Whitecourt. In 2007, they moved to Kelowna, where Dad could finally dedicate his full attention to his passion of golf.  Larry’s love of the West Coast of BC never waned; he loved to talk about Ocean Falls, the life-long friendships that were forged there and of course the “fishing tales.”  Rest easy, Dad, go fishing, play a round of golf…  Condolences may be sent to the family by visitingwww.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.
