South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Obituaries -

It is with great sad­ness that the fam­ily of John Robin­son an­nounces his pass­ing. John Robin­son of Laud­erdale-by-the-Sea passed un­ex­pect­edly on Novem­ber 20th, 2018 at the age of 85. John was born July 24, 1933 to Ray­mond and Jean Robin­son in Lon­don, On­tario, Canada. He moved to Pom­pano Beach, Flor­ida where he raised a fam­ily and started his busi­ness, E-Bond Epox­ies, be­fore mov­ing to Laud­erdale-by-the-Sea.

John was a pi­o­neer in the epoxy in­dus­try and worked closely with the De­part­ments of Trans­porta­tion in Flor­ida, Kansas, Michi­gan and North Carolina, as well as pri­mary in­dus­trial com­pa­nies.

John was graced with wit, charm, gen­eros­ity and an ad­ven­turer’s lust for life. He spent much of his free time cruis­ing the world and en­joyed shar­ing his love for cruis­ing with his fam­ily. John co­or­di­nated sev­eral large fam­ily cruises over the years, of­ten coin­cid­ing with his birth month. His fi­nal voy­age was just 4 months ago, with 23 fam­ily mem­bers join­ing him in Alaska to cel­e­brate his 85th birth­day.

John is sur­vived by his wife. He will be sorely missed by his daugh­ters, Cathy Ridge, Patti Miller and her hus­band Barry, Lori McHale and her hus­band Scott, Jen­nifer Swenty and her hus­band Brian and step­daugh­ter Fabi­ana Le­nis. He was par­tic­u­larly fond of his grand­chil­dren Chris­tena Perry, James Ridge, Joshua Miller, Rachel Schott, Re­bekka Miller, Jes­sica McHale, Ryan McHale, Emma Swenty, Ale­jan­dro Le­nis, Se­bas­tian Le­nis, Is­abella Botero and great grand­chil­dren Brylie Miller, Brody Miller, Lu­cas Ridge-Lavoie and J.J. Ridge. A Me­mo­rial gath­er­ing will be held on Wed­nes­day Novem­ber 28th from 2-5pm with a me­mo­rial ser­vice from 5-6PM at Kraeer Funeral Home, 200 W. Copans Rd, Pom­pano Beach, FL 33064
