Robertson; Robert Norman of Markdale in his 58th year resting at Fawcett Funeral Cremation Reception

Posted by on February 14, 2018

Robertson; Robert Norman


Bob passed away suddenly at his home in Carnaville, Markdale on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 in his 58th year with his loving partner of Linda Chevrier by his side. Beloved son of Ruth Robertson of Shelburne, John(Deb Currie) Robertson of Markdale and step mother Marne Robertson. Loving father to Michelle Chevrier of Vaughn. Dear brother to John Jr. of Toronto, Frederick(Nancy) of Orangeville, Carrie(Cory Lafonte), James(Dawn) all of Markdale and step sisters Andrea(Dean) Archdekin and Chrissy Currie(Brett Coates) all of Wasaga Beach. He will be remembered as cherished uncle to John, Elizabeth, Jeffrey, Allie, Jassie, Ward, Jackson, Grace, Paige, Skylar, Daniel, Dezeray, Zack and Madison. He will be missed by his many great nieces, great nephews, cousins and friends in the carnival industry.
Bob was born in Newmarket on January 30, 1961. He grew up in Bolton, Niagara and Scarborough. He would spend his summers with his dad at the carnivals and once he was of working age he dove right into the family business. He later got his mechanics license and did all the inspections on the trucks. He quickly learned the trades and was a born entrepreneur; starting up his own business at a very young age. This came easily to Bob, which is probably what made him the best concessioner there ever was; everyone wanted to play his games. He thoroughly enjoyed snowmobiling, working on his dune buggy and Star Wars, especially the music. A real comedian, mostly stand up, he loved to make you laugh. But nothing was better than his own child-like laugh. Bob was a fair person who never took sides. He was very methodical and would often sit and take everything in before speaking. He was tidy and neat and it nearly droving him crazy, but these qualities are what made him such a perfectionist and so good at his job. Selfless in every way. So many will miss their time spent with Bob, but no one as much as the children. He loved to spend every moment he could with his nieces and nephews; reading to them and playing games.
The family will receive friends at the Fawcett Funeral Cremation Reception, Flesherton on Sunday, February 18 from 2:00-4:00 and 7:00-9:00pm. Funeral service from Annesley United Church (82 Toronto St. S, Markdale) on Monday at 11:00am. Interment Markdale Cemetery. Memorial contributions to Heart and Stroke Foundations or OSPCA would be gratefully appreciated. Online donations and condolences at www.fawcettfuneralhome.ca 88-924-2810

With deep sadness, we wish to communicate the passing of “Doug” Hines – a long-time resident of the GTA, also known as Papa Smurf, Wee Dougie, Cowboy Doug and Big “D,” in his eighty-fourth year.  In his final moments, at Etobicoke General hospital, Doug experienced the profound joy of having his loving children, grandchildren and great grandchild by his side.   He will be greatly missed by his children Michael Hines, Catherine (Betsy) Hines, and James (Jamie) Hines; grandchildren, Sarah Hines, Alex Hines, Hudson Hines, Christen Latham, Rebecca Laffrade, James Wimpory, & Ashley Hines, and great grandchildren, Wynter Zuch, Charlie Laffrade, Carter Laffrade, and by countless extended relatives and friends.  Doug was pre-deceased by his parents Catherine Hines (nee McClelland) and John Hines, sister Marilyn “Sissy” Ball (the late Karl), and is survived by his sister, Jeanne Fry (Allan) and nephew Jeff. Doug loved his family with his entire being and had tremendous pride in his heart for his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.  We are eternally grateful that Doug has left us a legacy of love.
Doug enjoyed the outdoors, but only from his horse or a convertible, or by the BBQ. His love of dogs and horses were his passions, along with his great love of sports – auto-racing, hockey and football, in particular. We will all miss those special times with him while he enjoyed and shared his passions & his great love of unique comments & profanity not just while watching sports but reading the paper and especially while driving.
Friends and family are invited to email celebratingdoughines@gmail.com for information regarding a Tapenade and Caesars celebration in toasting Doug on Saturday, November 25th, from 2pm-4pm. These were his favorite weekend specialties. Anyone who knew Doug, was also aware that he had an enormous passion for horses.
