May 9, 1949 – Nov. 29, 2020. “And into the field I go to lose my mind and find my soul” James Kenneth “Jamie” Robb of Point Clark, formerly if Ilderton, died unexpectedly, at the Kincardine hospital, Sunday, Nov. 29, 2020, after a brief illness. He was 71. Greatly missed by his loving wife of almost 50 years, Rebecca (Brand) Robb. Loving and proud father of Jennifer (Dwain) Marrinan, and Michael Robb and his partner, Jen Hardy. Poppa loved all his boys, Aidan, Tristan, Evan, and Landon. Missed by his fur kids, Gunner, Clementine, Nora, and Cashew. Dear brother and brother-in-law of Joe Marshall, Gayle and Paul Bycraft, Diane Robb and Dick Campbell, Edward and Karen Robb, Carolyn and John Blewett, Bonnie Neely, Peter and Bonnie Brand, Alan and Shirley Brand, David and Terry Brand, Beth and Tom Marshall, Sallie McFarlane, and Cindie and Mike Solway. Fondly remembered and missed by his nieces, nephews, and the many friends he made along the way. Predeceased by his parents, Ken and Jean (Evans) Robb; Rebecca’s parents, Howard and Vera (Casemore) Brand; and his sister, Mary Marshall (2020). Jamie was a proud three-generation farmer, working and living on the family farm in Lobo Township. He logged many hours in the barn and in the fields, and took what spare time he had left to volunteer as a hockey coach, or playing “500” on the lawn with his kids in the summer and then to “the hills” to toboggan in the winter. For the past 20 years, Jamie and Beckie enjoyed life at the lake in Point Clark. Even though he didn’t have a farm of his own, he was warmly welcomed by the Lowry family, and was quickly put to work. Once a farmer, always a farmer. If you ever met Jamie, you instantly had a friend for life. No matter where he was, if people he knew lived close by, they were guaranteed a visit. Keeping with Jamie’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A private celebration of his life will be held Friday, Dec. 4, 2020. Though the celebration is private, the family invites you to join with them for words of remembrance that will be held at 1 p.m. Stream the service live or watch as you are able at another time by visiting In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer Society of London and Middlesex, in memory of Jamie’s mother, Jean Evans, and his sister, Mary Marshall, would be appreciated by the family. “It isn’t the farm that makes the farmer; it is the love, hard work and character”
