ROBINSON, Kenneth Edward (Kenny) "Smokey" "Papa Kenny"



It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the unexpected passing of Kenny from natural causes at home on Sunday, June 6, 2021 in his 64th year.  

Loving and devoted father of Amanda Kelly (nee Currie)(Chris).  Proud papa of Kaleb (Papa's "Little Man").  Amanda, Chris and Kaleb were Kenny's world as everyone who knew him would know. Cherished son of Irene and the late Cecil Robinson.  Beloved and treasured brother of Cecil Jr. (Tammy), Rick (Alyson), Brian, Wayne (Colette) and Marie.  Special uncle of Staci (Cale), Tyler (Sheila), Cody, Ian, Aaron (Lindsey), Nicole (Brock) and Ryan (Emma).  Great uncle of nine.  Super special great uncle of Adrianna and Sonny.  Lifelong friend of Anna and the Currie family, Mike Schoch, Darin Warnock, Johnny Yukich and Marylou and Ed Kelly.  Kenny will be missed greatly by many aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family members on the East Coast and in the United States.

Kenny was one of those people who made you feel welcome and left a lasting impression on everyone he met.  He was always willing to lend a hand, cheer you on or give you his last dollar if you needed it.

Kenny was a valued long term-employee of Avery Construction.  His positive attitude and strong work ethic were admired and will be incredibly missed by all.  He was also a long term member of the Labourers' Union Local 1036.  

Amanda would like to send a special thank you to Wayne Scott and the Labourers' Union 1036 and the Avery Construction family  for their generosity, support and caring.

A private funeral service will be held on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 at Arthur Funeral Home - Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington St. E. 705-759-2522).  Rev. Lana Grawbarger officiating.  Memorial contributions to the Alzheimer Society or Kenny would like donations towards a trust fund for Kaleb's education would be appreciated.  Please visit to leave a message of condolence as a keepsake for the family.
