In loving memory of Jacques (Jack) Joseph Armand Robinson born on July 20, 1958 in St. Paul, AB and passed on June 30, 2020 in Brooks, AB. Jacques was born to parents Henri and Pierrette Robinson and was the 3rd eldest child of a family of 9 children. His siblings being Laurette Perren (Mark), Jean, Gerald (Wendy), Lorraine, Lucie, Lise, Line and Marc. Nephews- John, Ryan, Samuel, Daniel, Marshall, Jordan, Nigel and Joel. Nieces – Chantal, Maria, and Ashley. Jacques grew up on the family farm near Lafond, Alberta and enjoyed the wholesomeness that came from his upbringing. Jacques had many talents; he had many artistic abilities and loved to draw and paint in his earlier years. He had a passion for music and loved to share with anyone who would listen. Jacques was an entrepreneur and had the pleasure of growing a one-acre market garden on the family farm where his mom and brother Jean helped in planting, weeding, and harvesting. Jacques was not a stranger to hard work, he worked in the oil patch, picked fruit in Osoyoos, BC and hauling it to Alberta to sell in the St. Paul area and worked in the plumbing and draining industry. Jacques’s bond with his mom was strong and special. He phoned her every Sunday and always came to Alberta to celebrate Christmas and her birthday on July 1. I guess he wanted to join her in Heaven for her birthday this year. Jacques was drawn to the mountains and had made Vancouver home. Jacques attended and volunteered at Potter’s Place Mission in Vancouver. At Potter’s Place, Jacques truly had experienced a healing journey of pain, suffering and tears: from death to new life in Christ Jesus.
Jacques was predeceased by his father Henri, his mother Pierrette and his brother Jean-Marie. Jacques will be dearly missed by his siblings, his nephews and nieces, and great nephews and nieces, aunts and uncles, and numerous cousins and friends.
Those who wish to make a memorial contribution in Jacques’s memory can make it to Potter’s Place Mission, 21 Hastings St E, Vancouver, BC V6A 1M9 or Haying in the 30’s Cancer Support Society, Box 35, Mallaig, AB T0A 2K0.
“Eternal rest grant onto him O Lord and may perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, by the mercy of God, rest in Peace, Amen!”
