I met Robin the very first time October 1966 on Mt. Baker, on a ski outing with the Whistler Mountain Volunteer Ski Patrol. What followed was an association with Robin in conjunction with that group for many years. Robin impressed me as a thoughtful person full of good ideas and never shied to offer a helping hand.
I extend my condolence to his loved ones.
