Legendary Vancouver DJ Red Robinson passes away at age 86
Red Robinson — the legendary Vancouver disc jockey for decades — has passed away.
In a Twitter post Saturday evening, the family said: “With deep sadness and broken hearts, we bring the news that our beloved Dad, Red Robinson, passed this morning at 8:15 am after a brief illness. We’re so glad we got to spend his final moments with him, and having his brother Bill there made it extra special, Kellie and Sherrie Robinson posted.
“Most people knew our Dad as a rock ‘n’ roll DJ, a TV personality, an ad agency owner, a spokesperson, or through his philanthropic work. He was larger-than-life in a lot of ways, but to us he was a devoted father and grandfather, a loving husband to our late mom Carole, and a loyal friend to everybody.”
“Red’s departure leaves a huge hole in our lives, as well as the lives of everybody he touched in the worlds of radio, TV, music and entertainment.”
