We are heartbroken to announce the passing of Lee Robinson, our amazing and loving husband, dad, brother, papa, family member and friend. Lee passed away suddenly at the young age of 68 in Victoria BC on Nov 5th. Lee suffered a massive stroke and passed away only days later in the arms of his one and only true love, little Lu Lu.
He is survived by his wife, Lucrezia, children Leah, Melanie and Trevor, six grandchildren. Siblings, Jan, Jim, Richard, Ken and Blair. Numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Lee was born in Salmon Arm, but most of his childhood into his teen years was spent in Comox BC. Lee and Lu spent most of their lives in Salmon Arm and Enderby where they raised their three children. Lee was heavily involved in the community, from the ball parks to the hockey rink and everything in between. He is remembered by many as one of the best coaches around! Lee retired from the District of Salmon Arm in 2009. Lee and Lu moved to Victoria this past year as Lee had always dreamed of moving back to Victoria with his wife and best friend as they had lived in Victoria in 1970 and he always dreamed of moving back to live by the ocean. During their short time in Victoria, Lee and Lu enjoyed every moment together, spending time walking, laughing, talking, just being with each other. Lee also played slow-pitch in the Men’s Sr League in Victoria, he participated in the Men’s Sr. provincials in Vancouver and had the time of his life doing one of things he loved most, playing ball.
Lee also known as, Mr. Lee, Coach, papa, Uncle Lee and dad touched so many lives and all would agree he is one of the kindest, most generous people you could ever meet. Whenever Lee was around you could guarantee your day was made a whole lot brighter. His infectious smile, laugh and kind heart will forever be missed.
Please join us for a Celebration of Life for Lee on Nov 15th, 11AM at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Salmon Arm, BC (90-1st Street SE). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation in his memory.
