It is with heavy hearts that we an­nounce the pass­ing of James ‘ Jim’ Bryson Robin­son, 90, on Tues­day, July 21, 2015, at his home in Glace Bay, sur­rounded by his lov­ing fam­ily.

Born in Glace Bay, Jim came from a proud fam­ily of min­ers and con­tin­ued that tra­di­tion, work­ing in the mines for over 40 years.

Dur­ing the Sec­ond World War, he served as part of the Cana­dian Air Force, serv­ing over­seas in In­dia, Egypt and Eng­land.

Jim’s great­est joy came from spend­ing time with his closeknit fam­ily. He was hap­pi­est when the house was full.

He is sur­vived by his ded­i­cated and lov­ing wife Sadie Robin­son (MacLeod); his daugh­ters Eve­lyn(Glen) Smith, Joan ( James) McNeil, Jean (Lewellyn) Robin­son, Mora (Michael) Dev­ereaux, Bar­bara (Kevin) Ruel­land, Brenda ( Jack) McMullin, Lisa Robin­son; and sons, Al­fie ( Joan) Robin­son and Ken­neth (Ce­cilia) Robin­son; 17 grand­chil­dren 11 great-grand­chil­dren; his sis­terin-law He­len Stewart; and many close nieces and neph­ews.

Jim was pre­de­ceased by his par­ents Jean and Charles Robin­son, his brother Al­fred Robin­son, his sis­ter Kay Ol­ford, his sis­terin-law Martha Robin­son and his broth­ers-in-law Nor­man Ol­ford and Hugh Stewart.
