Alexander Allison Robertson

October 25, 1937 - February 24, 2017


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dad Alex. Born in Linwood, Scotland, on October 25, 1937, he died in Powell River on February 24, 2017, at age 79. He was predeceased by his wife Janet, his heart never truly healed. He was also predeceased by parents Robert and Margaret, brothers James, Robert and Tommy, sister Betty and his eldest son Bryan. A tragic loss for our family, forever leaving a hole in our hearts.
After emigrating from Scotland, Dad settled his family in Powell River and they were happy to call it their home. He gave his working years to the mill and was rewarded with lifelong friendships and respect. He loved that mill and it was hard for him to step down when it was time. Between shifts were countless soccer games, family holidays and get-togethers. Our dad was a prankster, a comedian, a hardworking man and a friend to all. Dad was a proud member of Royal Canadian Legion, where he felt honoured to be of service whenever needed and loved his afternoons around the table.
After losing Mom in 2015, and with his own health declining, he heard Janet calling his name and went to be with her. As hard as it is for us, we are grateful for all they were when they were here and are comforted knowing they are together again. Left to feel their everlasting love are Stephen and Lisa (Alex, Kyra and Jack), Allison and Bruce (Charmaine, Lee-Ann and great-granddaughters Kyla and Cassidy), and Jennifer and Adam (Kyle, Haley and Marissa). Dad also leaves countless favourite nieces and nephews, who adored their uncle Alex.
At dad's request, there will be no service. In the spring we will plant a tree in their honour and lay them together with Bryan. A very special thank-you to all those who looked out for Dad during some especially tough times; our appreciation is eternal as are his thanks to you.
To remember our dad, please consider a donation to Powell River Royal Canadian Legion Branch 164 in his honour or to a charity of your choice.
Thanks for the memories, Dad, you were one of the good guys and will be deeply missed every day.
