Robin Lee Nystrom

July 26, 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, Alberta and was raised by his Granny in Wetaskiwin, Alberta. He was a builder eve 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 Grande Prairie till the early 70’s then moved 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 build many beautiful homes and met some good friends. He met his buddy – Bonnie and they married in 2006. Robin was well known at A&W, where he looked forward every morning to having coffee with the guys. Robin’s 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) of Nelson, Shelly (Gerod) of Kelowna, 6 grandchildren Jenna, Judi, Jill of Kelowna, Erik, Kate, Kari of Nelson, Stepson Brad (Tiffany) of Calgary, step daughter 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. MacKay and staff, Dr. Malpass, the Homecare Staff you are beautiful people, we are so blessed to have people like you. Robin has requested no funeral service, just remember who he was.
