Obituary for Wayne Charles Robinson

It is with sadness we announce the passing of Wayne Charles Robinson on December 9th of Covid-19. Wayne was born on July 21, 1939 to Bill and Verna Robinson. Wayne grew up on Norah Street with his family, attended Isabella Street Public School and then Fort William Collegiate Institute. Wayne was very hard working and took on many jobs in his youth. He attended the University of New Brunswick and earned a Degree in Forestry. He started working for Great Lakes Forest Products, which kept him in bush camps and often not at home as much as he liked, but he truly loved being in the forest. In 1965, he married his high school sweetheart, Sharon Smith and together they had two children Cherie (Kok) and Jeffrey. When Cherie was born, a snowstorm kept him away from being at her birth and as the children grew, he decided he needed to take on employment closer to home. He took a Woodland Management position with MacMillan Bloedel and was involved with their operations in Thunder Bay and Nipigon for the remainder of his career.

Wayne enjoyed the family camp at Amethyst Harbour mainly in May, June, September, and October, when the campers were not there. He enjoyed fishing in the summer and hunting in the fall. He was ahead of his time, when it came to conservation and recycling, always looking for new ways to compost or recycle. Wayne got involved with Jeff and Cherie’s life even if he had no experience. He coached soccer not knowing anything about the sport, became a swimming official for swim meets, and learned to ski as an adult so the family could do an activity together. He took the time to be involved, even though his job kept him away from home at times.

Wayne suffered from dementia in the last several years and lived the last 4 years at Roseview Manor. We would like to thank the front-line workers who took care of Wayne, especially during his final days under some very difficult and challenging circumstances. Wayne is survived by his sister, Cheryl Holt of Pembroke and will be missed by his children and grandchildren Cherie (Patrick) Benjamin, Abbie, and Callie Kok and Jeffrey (Eleanor) Jordan, Oliver, and Justin Robinson. A private celebration of life will take place at a later date. Wayne would be happy knowing you planted a tree or donated to EcoSuperior (

Dad, grandpa, papa, you were loved dearly and will be sadly missed. Enjoy your real retirement with mom.

Your parents were a very big part of our lives. We loved your father's very quick, dry wit and your mom's effervescence. They were quite a pair!

Cherie and Jeff and families, our most heartfelt condolences on your Dad's passing. What a year you kids have had. I have many fond memories of your Dad and me fishing, the time we spent together on the boat was fantastic, many good memories, and although we were apart the last few years, he will always have place in my heart.
