Husband of the late Shirley Brown (2014) for 19 years. Father of Larry & Justine Brown of Quebec, Isaac & Lyndsay of Russell, Owen & Mariah Brown of Brantford, and step-father of Samantha & Lee Owens of Delaware USA, Norman Shannon of Lucan, Todd Shannon of London, and Christy Shannon & David Wardell of LaSalle.
Robin was the grandfather to Marie, Noah, Elya, Nathalie, Cohen, step-grandfather to Darcy Shannon, and Myles Owens.
Robin was born in New Brunswick and raised in Gaspé, to parents Burnett and Helen and growing up in a family of 6 with his siblings Christopher † "Kit" (Shirely) Brown, Wayne † (Anista) Brown, Barry (Laurel) Brown, Rowena (Mahobir) Singha, and Lynn (Patricia) Brown.
Robin spent his working days as a skilled crane operator, proudly working with IUOE 793, but when he wasn't working, Robin was strumming on his acoustic guitar. It didn't matter where, Robin played from the East Coast, through to Ontario, with pick up bands or at family get-togethers. Country Blue Grass music was in his soul and he was ready to share the joy with all in his presence. Robin and Shirley would travel together to different Blue Grass Festivals and car shows as well, always with groups of friends, enjoying company and comradery.
Robin was a talented and skilled man, always up for a good time, ready with a joke, and the gift of storytelling. Though absent, you are still loved and missed. Go where the guitar takes you, drift into the sounds of our hearts.
The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Dr.'s, nurses, and volunteers at Erie Shore Hospice as well as Joe Perry for playing his guitar for Robin, A celebration of life will take place at a later date. Donations can be made to Erie Shores Hospice in Leamington
