Robinson, Charles Frederick 'Charlie'

It is with profound sorrow that I announce the passing of Charles Frederick Robinson on Tuesday, June 8, 2021, at Grey Bruce Health Services in Meaford, following a brief but fierce battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 80.

Left to mourn are his wife Sharon (nee Peever); his children Kevin Robinson, Terri Staples, Nancy Liznick (Daryl), Michael Robinson and step daughter Erin Blouin.

Left with precious memories are his grandchildren Bradly Liznick, Jennifer Liznick, Robbie Staples, Steven Staples, Ian Emans, Stephanie Kotowich (Marc), Kelsey Blouin and Jayme Blouin. He will also be truly missed by Sharon’s siblings; Mel Peever (Caulleen), Bud Peever (Carole), Sheila Ross (J.R. “Chucker”) and Bill Peever.

Charlie retired as CEO of the Meaford General Hospital after working for many years in health care at hospitals throughout Ontario.

When he wasn’t at work, he was volunteering and working tirelessly for the North Shores District Health Council, the Huntsville Hospital Board, Rotary Club, Lions Club, Food Banks, Fish restocking, Animal Welfare and the Condo Board.

A few of Charlie’s favourite things were parades, marching bands, steel drums, poker games, puzzles of any kind, babies, animals, coaching his Maple Leafs from his lazy boy chair and ice cold beer.

Charlie lived a long life, full of travel, adventure, fun and lots of love. His outgoing and cheerful personality, plus his mischievous dimples will surely be missed by many.

Private family arrangements at this time.

    Two years ago Charlie and I went fishing down the Mettamagi River.
    Being with Charlie and seeing 4 Moose (including a momma and her 2 week old baby ) was a thrill of a lifetime that will be with me forever.
    Rest In Peace Chas

    My condolences Sharon to you and your family. I remember fondly working with Charlie, he truly loved his work and the hospital he served. Charlie ensured that Meaford and its neighbours could count on accessible quality health care for many years to come. Charlie will be greatly missed but his legacy lives on.

    We will truly miss seeing and talking to Charlie, our smiling neighbour from across the street. Many a time, we have looked out the front door to see a new pocket book on the window ledge. The street and the entire neighbourhood will not be the same without him. He was a true character in all of the best ways and will be deeply missed. Our sincere condolences, Sharon.
