It is with profound sadness we announce that, after a courageous battle, Donald Frisbee Robinson passed away surrounded by loved ones on April 8, 2022.
Don will be lovingly remembered and missed by his wife Carolyn Barr; daughters Christine (Nick) Ingersoll and Amanda (Richard) McCoy; Step-sons Aaron Barr and Cale (Lindsay) Barr; and his grandchildren Alyssa, Lucas, Liam, Alex and Max, who brought him great joy. Also mourning his loss are: sister Deborah Edwardsen; brothers Doug (Mary Ellen) Robinson, David (Mary) Robinson, Duncan (Debbie) Robinson, Dale (Donna) Robinson, Dean (Harriet) Robinson, and Denton (Stacey) Robinson; his Aunt Olive Roeckner; and Donald’s extended family, nieces, nephews and friends. Donald was predeceased by his parents Doug and Dorothy Robinson, and his wife Agnes Robinson.
Don was a member of Eastgate Lodge No. 192 (Ancient Free and Accepted Masons) where he made lifelong friends. He had a huge heart and touched many lives with his generosity, kindness, and accepting nature. He always had a smile for everyone.
Don enjoyed being active at home and afar with daily walks, camping, and when traveling, adventures like swimming with whale sharks and climbing ruins. Don had a
passion for travel and barely got back from one trip before he was planning the next. Carolyn and Don packed many years of memories into their time together, living life to the fullest. He loved dancing and would often pull her in for a quick impromptu dance in the kitchen.
Family was of the utmost importance to Don. He bragged often about his daughters, grandchildren, step-sons and their families. When he and his seven siblings got together, the laughter was constant and the stories became more embellished every time.
Don was born in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, on May 17, 1948. He lived in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Alberta, traveled to BC for University and graduated from UBC with an Education Degree. During his life he became involved in the family business and spent time in banking. He finished out his career working in property management and development in Morinville.
Don was very loved and will be missed by many. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. There will be a private
celebration of life held May 15th.
