Obituary of Maurice Patrick Robinson

Please share a memory of Maurice to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

August 29th, 1946 - February 24th, 2022

 

In the early hours of Wednesday February 24th, Maurice Robinson of Linden, Alberta passed away peacefully at the age of 75 while listening to “Life is Like a Mountain Railway” with his wife Flo by his side.

 

Maurice was born on August 29th, 1946 and spent his youth in Delson, Quebec with his parents Maurice Sr. and Buddy (Vida) Robinson, and his brothers Jim and Steve.  In the 70’s, Maurice moved to Calgary and held various  jobs such as farm hand, brewery worker, baggage handler and driving truck.  Eventually he owned his own trucking company, doing work for hire. 

 

Maurice met his wife Flo in the mid 80’s and together they moved to the Acme area.  Maurice was a wonderful friend, partner and husband to Flo and a loving father to John and Wendy.  In 1987 David came along to complete the family of 5.   In the 90’s Maurice and Flo moved to Linden where they ran Acme Cleaning Services, the Linden Mobile Home Park and Linden Coffee Talk.

 

Maurice loved his family, trucks, cars, trains, chocolate, music and drawing.  He had a quick sense of humour and loved to laugh.  Maurice was an excellent problem solver, mechanically talented, and a beautiful singer.  He loved to travel.  He also loved to have a coffee in his favourite place, Global Grounds, which he helped to build with Wendy in 2002, then owned with Flo from 2007-2014.

 

Maurice was diagnosed with Dementia 12 years ago.  For 10 years he stayed at home, being cared for by Flo, family, caregivers and also by the Linden community, who would keep an eye on him around town.  Maurice spent his last 2 years in the Horizon (Dementia) ward in Ponoka and his final week in palliative care at Westview Care Center (Linden Nursing Home).  His family are grateful for the care he received while in Ponoka and feel very blessed that Maurice was able to come home to Linden before going home to be with Jesus.

 

Maurice is survived by his wife Flo Robinson, children David (Teresa) Robinson, John (Julie) Hillis, Wendy (Todd Taylor) Hillis as well as grandchildren Felix, Freja, Isabel & Rosemary, also his brothers Jim & Steve Robinson.

 

While no service will be held at this time, a celebration will be held in his honour on his birthday this summer, with a party and visit around a fire.  Donations can be made in Maurice’s honour to the Westview Care Center, who went above and beyond to help during this time.  Like Maurice, their compassion and generosity was an incredible blessing and will never be forgotten.
