Peter Kenelm Robinson of Point Clark, died at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre, Kincardine, Monday, Dec. 28, 2020, in his 80th year. Cherished husband of Patricia (née Saxton). Deeply loved by his daughter, Belinda; and his 'adopted' daughter, Shirley Saxton, and her family; brother, Kenneth and family; and sisters, Susan and Angela, and their families. Survived by his daughter, Wendy. Peter will be forever missed by his grandchildren, Jennifer Robinson, Naomi Yonick, and Calum and Rhys Davis. Predeceased by his parents, Jack and Jessie (née Simpson) Robinson; sister, Maureen; and brother, David. Peter's family wishes to especially recognize the following people for their valued friendship and support: Joye Hunt, Sue and David Young, Deborah and Georgia Morris, Margaret and Stan Day, Carol and Tony Clark, Derek Gladding Jr., Deborah and Gabriel Caira, Cherie Hunt-Johnson, Dave Jury and family, Michael and Annetta Bandura, Tony and Rose Davis, and the Thursday morning breakfast crew. Born in Rotherham, Yorkshire, in 1941, Peter was in his late 20s, when he and Pat and their two young children emigrated to Canada where he spent his career as a nuclear operator at Ontario Hydro (now Bruce Power). Peter loved the outdoors – fishing, sailing, and diving – and he was an accomplished carpenter in his spare time. Following his wishes, cremation has taken place.
