Kevin William Robinson
June 7, 1969 – February 24, 2023
Kevin was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and grew up in Prince Albert, Regina and Saskatoon. Kevin loved being outdoors. He started cross-country skiing as a Jackrabbit and grew into racing and coaching. His favorite winter holidays were at Silver Star, trying to surpass his previous vacation’s mileage. He made lifelong friends through marathon canoe racing. Summer vacations were spent canoe tripping on the Churchill River system. He earned an MBA through the University of Saskatchewan with a goal of combining his business knowledge and his passion for outdoor sports. Owning Eb’s Source for Adventure was a perfect fit. He wanted his customers to share his joy in playing outside, so made a point of providing tips to people buying their first set of outdoor equipment. Whether on the south shore of Lake Athabasca, on the train from Lillehammer after skiing the Birkenbeiner, or at a rest stop on the Dempster Highway in the Yukon, he would be greeted with, “Aren’t you Kevin from Eb’s?” Kevin believed work and life should be fun; he laughed a lot. His distinctive laugh had an old friend searching the aisles of a grocery store in Whitehorse even though she didn’t know he was in town. Kevin’s love of the outdoors was equalled by his devotion to his family, including the 4-legged members, and to his friends. He was “blown away” by the support, kindness and generosity family and friends offered to him and Cathy during his illness. He was also very grateful for the care he received at Royal University Hospital. A celebration of Kevin’s life will be held on Tuesday, March 7, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. at the Western Development Museum in Saskatoon. Lunch to follow. Please wear Eb’s gear if you have it. The service will be livestreamed at www.schuler-lefebvrefuneralchapel.com. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Royal University Hospital Foundation (103 Hospital Drive, Saskatoon, SK, S7N 0W8), or New Hope Dog Rescue (8B-3110 8th St. E., Suite 530, Saskatoon, SK, S7H 0W2).
