It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father, partner, uncle and friend Robin Stuart Young on May 10th 2023 at Royal Inland Hospital. He was 63 years old. Robin is survived by his children Rory and Anna, partner Kim and her daughter Emily as well as many extended family members and friends. Robin was born to mother Marjorie and his father George on April 26th, 1960, in Victoria BC.
The first few years of his life were spent in Victoria and on Salt Spring Island before moving and growing up in Delta. In 1978 he graduated from South Delta Secondary School where he played on the rugby team and enjoyed being a part of the community in Tsawwassen and at the beach in Boundary Bay. Robin was blessed with his two children Rory and Anna from his first wife Merrilea; and in 1996 moved to their home in Adams Lake BC. He spent the rest of his life at his lakeside home in Adams Lake where he had a tugboat and marine construction business to keep him busy. Robin was an avid sports fan both on the field and cheering his kids on from the bleachers in rugby, baseball, and volleyball. He enjoyed years of skiing and working as a ski patroller both in Kimberly and at Sun Peaks Resort.
In 2005 Robin met Kim and another 18 years of adventures began. These two were always off going to different golfing destinations, travelling, spending time at the coast, and discovering new culinary experiences. Combining their respective circles of friends, Robin and Kim were thankful for the time they got to connect with all of them.
Anyone who knew Robin knew that he loved just hanging out over a cup of coffee, or margarita, and genuinely cared about how you were doing. Everyone in the family always felt his support.
Although his health started to fail him, he stayed positive through anything that was thrown his way. He will be remembered for his generosity, his ability to see the best in someone, and a personality as big as he was. Robin will be greatly missed by all.
The family would like to thank everyone who did something to help Robin in the last couple of months, small gestures added up to big things, and he appreciated all of them.
Travel safe and rest easy superman.
