Reginald Reg Robson

June 1, 1933 - April 17, 2011


Reginald Frederick Robson (June 1, 1933 – April 17, 2011) passed away peacefully on April 17, at the age of 77, with his devoted wife Eunice at his side and surrounded by his loving family, at Moog and Friends Hospice in Penticton BC. Reg was predeceased by his parents Frederick and Mary Robson of Dauphin Manitoba. He was born in Dauphin and raised on the pioneer homestead farm settled by his ancestors in the 1800’s. Reg met Eunice, the love of his life at a high school dance. Together for 57 years, they raised their three children in Manitoba where Reg led a successful career in Public Service, beginning in Forestry, working as the Assistant Deputy Minister of Northern Affairs, retiring from Municipal Finance in Winnipeg. Reg and Eunice retired to BC where he enjoyed golf at Fairview Mountain, playing pool at the Oliver Legion, gardening and travel with his wife and many good friends. Reg will be remembered for his exceptional generosity, his fine sense of humour and his commitment to family and friends. Reg lived his life with dignity and integrity, recognized by all who knew him as a man of his word, who was always willing to lend a hand to help others. Reg was proud to volunteer in recent years as a driver for the Masonic Cancer Car Program. Cherished as a loving husband, father and grandfather, Reg leaves to mourn his wife Eunice Robson, his children Christine Robson of Winnipeg, Craig Robson of Burnaby, Alanna Robson and her husband Michael Pierce of Maple Ridge, his grandchildren Kelsey and Brandon Pierce of New Westminster BC. Reg is survived by his older brother and best friend Walter Robson and his wife Doreen Robson of Dauphin, a younger brother and two sisters, many nieces and nephews.
Great appreciation is extended to the caring physicians and nurses of Penticton Hospital, the Penticton Renal Clinic, and Moog and Friends Hospice. Respecting Reg’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will take place at the Oliver Legion Hall at 2:00 P.M. on Thursday April 21, 2011.
Our family’s chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same.
As God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Reg’s memory to Moog and Friends Hospice in Penticton, BC or to the Okanagan-Similkameen Hospital Foundation, or the Masonic Cancer Car Program.

Eunice and family, I was saddened to hear of the passing of Reg. I was fortunate to have worked with Reg for several years and I always felt that he was one of the persons most responsible for my career in municipal government. Reg (along with his friend George) provided with the opportunity to advance in municipal government and I shall be forever greatful for it. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.

Relation: Friend and colleague

Eunice, please know that Hollie and I hold you and your family in our thoughts at this difficult time. I have so many very good memories of Reg, mostly during our time working together in Municipal Affairs. He was a great support to me in the workplace and also a good friend, whether on the golf course, the curling ice, or even cutting firewood in the forest. I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing.

From: Charlie Houston
Relation: Fellow employee - Prov. of Manitoba

So sorry to hear the news of your dear husband, Reg. Just read the obituary and what caught my eye was , “Reg lived his life with dignity and integrity.” -How true! I always respected these two traits of his. A straight shooting fellow. Always forthright. You always knew where you stood with him. He will be missed by countless people. A true friend. My prayers are with you, Eunice.

From: Elsie Reid
Relation: worked with Reg

I worked with Reg for many years in municipal government. He was very supportive and convinced me that I had chosen the right career. Without his support and confidence in my ability I would not have had such a great career. Reg was a great person and will be missed. My prayers are with you all.
