The family of Edward “Robbie” Lloyd Robertson is saddened to announce his passing on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at the Rose Villa at the age of 89 years.

Robbie was born on April 18, 1928 at Sec 12-Tp 31-Rge 14 W3rd. He was the eldest of three children, having two younger sisters. Robbie married Marjorie Weir from Leney on April 7, 1949. They lived in Zealandia and he was the local milkman for several years. He then took up farming, moving to the farm full time around 1958. Robbie loved animals of all kinds; especially horses. You could usually find an assortment of ducks, bantams, sheep, pigs and cows on the farm. Mix in there three children, and the critters were complete. In the winter, Robbie played hockey. He played with the Milden Mintos when they won the Provincial Championship and he also played with the Zealandia Zippers. As the kids grew, he took his turn as a hockey coach and a 4-H leader. Robbie took up chuckwagon and chariot driving for a period and was fondly named “Racing Robbie”. Retirement meant a move back to Zealandia. Of course, the animals moved with him (a smaller number) also adding Guinea hens and his fainting goats. Later in life, he and Marj did some travelling that had them seeing Canada from coast to coast, a couple of bus trips to the USA, a trip to Hawaii and cruising a few times. In April of 2014, Robbie and Marj moved into Rosetown to the Oasis.

Robbie is survived by his wife of 68 years Marjorie; son Dan and friend Rick of Surrey B.C.; son Robin of Saskatoon; daughter Roberta (Wayne) Russell of Rosetown; granddaughters Ember (Jon) Kellington – children Jake and Heidi; Jodi (Jon) Kadler – children Ella, Quinton, Macie and Robbie; Bobbi (Byron) Gaetz – children Solina and Lincoln; sister Cec Robertson; brothers and sisters-in-law Dorothy Jamison, Bob (Fay) Weir, John (Joy) Weir and Bea Cole as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was predeceased by his parents Ed and Margaret Robertson, sister Shirley McFaull, brothers-in-law Field McFaull, Fred Jamison and Jim Doyle, mother and father-in-law Tom and Ethel Weir, nieces Debbie and Susan and nephews Tommy, Tim and Colin.

A Memorial Service was held on Monday, August 21, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at the Rosetown United Church with Reverend Jo-Ann Hills officiating. Donations in memory of Robbie may be made to the Rosetown & District Health Centre Foundation Inc. P.O. Box 653, Rosetown, SK, S0L 2V0.

Dear Marj and Family:

Marg and I were sorry to receive Deanna's telephone message about Robbie's passing. We have fond memories of our conversations at the last Robertson reunion we attended. I think that was in 2007.
You and the family are in our prayers.
Love, Marg and Dave Robertson, Lindsay, ON.

We're sorry to hear about Robbie, who was my dad's cousin (Donald Robertson, also sometimes called Robbie, son of Bill and Frances.) We enjoyed meeting him and Marj on a trip to Saskatchewan before the reunion and again for the reunion and hearing the stories about the family.
