June 11, 1956 – August 22, 2019

Mr. Robin Jardine, age 63 years, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, August 22, 2019.

Robin was born in Kenora, ON on June 11, 1956 to Colin and Madeleine Jardine. He was raised and educated in Labrador City, Nfld and Sherbrooke, QC. In his teenage years, Robin loved to ski and he raced downhill competitively in Labrador City and Lennoxville, QC. He also coached a ski team (summer training camps) in France and Chile, South America. He moved to Kenora for a short period and worked in construction. Robin then moved to Thunder Bay, where he attended Lakehead University and completed his degree in Mechanical Engineering. He also enjoyed cross-country skiing, camping, fishing and most recently, traveling to the Philippines. In addition, Robin made numerous road trips with his daughter (whom he loved so dearly) including many trips to Quebec, so she could spend time with her grandparents. Bryce (his grandson) was his greatest joy and pride and brought him so much happiness. He enjoyed sharing his knowledge and expertise in home renovations with his son-in-law, Kevin.

Robin went on to self-employment as a skilled tradesman in the areas of carpentry, plumbing and electrical work in Thunder Bay and then went on to Kingfisher Lake First Nation. He worked in the community for a number of years, gaining trust and much respect of the people and making a difference in the lives of many community people while working there. He will be sadly missed by the people of Kingfisher Lake First Nation. Robin was a kind and hard-working man who took great pride in his work and accomplishments.

During his time in Kingfisher Lake First Nation, Robin brought out over one hundred stray dogs to Thunder Bay so they could receive care and find loving homes. He was a very caring man who always put others first. 

Robin built his home in Kaministiquia including building a cabin (sugar camp) for his father as his father was in maple syrup production. His father owned land in Rock Forest, QC where he planted numerous maple trees to produce the syrup.

Robin is survived by his beloved daughter Vanessa (Kevin) Moody; grandson Bryce and granddaughter on the way as well as his wife Rose. Also surviving are Vanessa's mother, Julia Jardine; grandpuppy Rex; two sisters and two brothers; numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and in-laws.

He was predeceased by his parents; brother Dave; nephews Tyler and Isiah and his faithful dog, Logan.

Cremation has taken place. A private immediate family service was held and interment will take place at a later date. Arrangements have been entrusted to the WESTFORT CHAPEL, 420 West Gore Street at James.

If friends so wish, donations made in memory of Robin to the Thunder Bay and District Humane Society would be greatly appreciated.

Dad, You are Forever in our Hearts.

I am so sorry to hear of Robin's passing. I grew up across the street from Robin's family in Labrador City and I have really fond memories of them when we were kids. I also spent weekends at Smokey Mountain skiing. Robin was one of the best skiers and he would give me great ski tips. He was always kind even as a child. I have a very vivid memory of the Jardines that I still laugh about. One evening when the Jardine kids were supposed to be in bed, unbeknowst to their parents, an upstairs window opened and the boys all climbed out onto the small roof over the front door, but not before handing little Suzie down to one of the boys, already on the roof. It was hilarious. I can't remember whether they did this on a regular basis or not, but it sure was funny. I can still remember them laughing.
Robin was such a good person and a real athlete. I always imagined he would end up on the National Ski team, and I see from his obituary that he carried on skiing for many years. It really amazes me that he was also a big animal rescue person, as I too have been intimately involved in animal rescue over the years. Knowing that he helped so many animals in need fills my heart with respect for him. The world will be a lesser place without him. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends. May you take comfort in great memories.
