Robin Lee Nystrom

1942 – October 16, 2014

Robin passed away peacefully at home with his wife Bonnie beside him. While battling cancer he was determined to keep on going.

He was born in Edmonton and raised by his Granny in Wetaskiwin, Alberta. He was a builder ever since he was 5 years old always building and creating something from nothing. He married and had 2 children Rob and Shelly. They lived in Grand Prairie till the early 70’s then moved on to Kelowna in 1976 to raise their family and kept on building.

Robin moved on then and came to Nelson in the 80’s where he built many beautiful homes and met some good friends. He met his buddy Bonnie they married in 2006. Robin was well known at A&W where he looked forward every morning to have coffee with the guys. Robins passion was his cars and always thinking of what he could make or fix. He will be sadly missed but not forgotten by his children Rob Jr (Brenda) Nelson, Shelly (Gerod) Kelowna, 6 grandchildren Jenna, Judi, Jill of Kelowna. Erik, Kate, Kari of Nelson. Stepson Brad (Tiffany) of Calgary. Stepdaughter Kym and Step granddaughter Tika of Nelson, and his best buddy Bonnie of 20 years. We’ll remember Robin for his creativity and nothing stopped him from trying. “there’s always a way” he would say “Just let me think about it first”

We would like to thank Dr McKay and staff and Dr Malpass. The homecare staff, your beautiful people we are so blessed to have people like you. Robin requested no funeral services just remember who he was.
