After a courageous battle with cancer, it is with profound sadness that we wish to announce the passing of our beloved father Walter Sylvan Robbins, 81 of Edmonton, AB surrounded by his family on July 11, 2021.

Walter is survived by his daughter Abby (Colin) Matthews, son Kelly (Barbra) Robbins, son Trent Robbins, daughter Tracey Robbins, brothers Larry (Loretta), Donald (Linda), Brian (Sandie), Darcy (Wendy) and many loving grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family. Predeceased by his mother and father (Carolyn and Sylvan ) and his daughter Carol Woodward. Walter was a loving father, grandfather and friend to all.

Walter was in building construction for the most part of his employment and chose to share his expertise and knowledge with customers and staff while working at Home Depot in his senior years. He loved baseball, hockey and golf. In his earlier years you could not pry him from the ball field and in his latter years he was seen playing golf. Walter was always there to help friends with carpentry projects or whatever else they needed him for.

A special thank you to the Grey Nuns Hospital in Edmonton for the loving care and support. Also thank you to Trinity Funeral Home and Evergreen Funeral Home for all the arrangements.

Interment Services for Walter will be on July 17, 2021 at 10:30 am at Evergreen Funeral Home and Cemetery. Donations can be made to your favorite charity in lieu of flowers.

    • Catherine……..did not that Wally had passed on in 2021. You see, I grow up with him in the early days in Edmonton…….the late 60s to early 70s. I believe that he was married to Vivian and she had a daughter from a previous marriage. Her name was Tamara Berg. She would be in her late 50s fifties…….I guess. Wally had a daughter named Abby from his first marriage. I new Wally as he was my foster mothers daughter’s husband. Vivian was the eldest of 4 daughters in the Mc Quade family. I was a foster child growing up in The McQuide house hold that Wally had frequently visited over the years.

  2. RIP Wally and thank you for 50+Years of Friendship. God Bless Wally’s Family and Friends. 🙏 🥇
