It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Kevin Michael Robins at Leduc, AB at the age of 67 years.
Kevin will be lovingly remembered by his family, his friends and the community which he was so passionate about building. Kevin was born in 1954 to parents Paul and Ruth Robins in Barrie, ON. He grew up in Barrie with his parents and his two sisters, Gayle and Alison and twin brother Christopher. Kevin was married to his adoring wife Rose for almost 50 years and built their life in Leduc with three beautiful children, Tammy (Darrell), Daniel (Tara) and Erica (Cory). Kevin proudly boasted about his grandchildren Alex (Fernanda), Sydney, Josh, Stephen, Gabby, Maya, Ben, Jacob and Arianna. Always at Kevin’s feet looking for snacks are his two dogs, Normie and Nelson.
Kevin’s career was long but most notably included 25 years with the City of Leduc starting as being the youngest and first full-time Fire Chief in 1982 and finishing as the City Manager for 12 years. Kevin was instrumental in so many pivotal and innovative developments making the City of Leduc what it is today.
