McArthur, Robin Malcolm

July 28, 1953 - July 26, 2014

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Robin Malcolm McArthur. Robin passed away peacefully in his sleep early Saturday morning at Cascade Hospice in Chilliwack, BC. He is now reunited with his parents, Edward Joseph McArthur and Susan Jane McArthur along with his brother Dalton Craig McArthur and father in-law Edward Chernask. He will be greatly missed by his wife Lori Alyn (Chernask) McArthur and his two children Stephen Craig McArthur and Sheena Alyn McArthur (Darrell) along with his brother Stuart McArthur (Lorraine), sisters Ruth McArthur, Kim Haslebacher, Diane Louise Bekker (Ben) as well as 10 nieces and nephews and 15 great nieces and nephews. Robin was born in Penticton but lived most of his life in Hope. He worked for many different companies doing mechanical work, specializing in wiring, finishing his career working for himself at All 4 Services. He was honored to be a member of Hope Volunteer Search and Rescue for 39 years. He spent a few years as the metalwork and mechanics teacher at Hope Secondary School and also really enjoyed his time working with the Discovery Channel on Highway Thru Hell. Robin loved everything that included family. He was a real family man. We would like to thank Dr. Shan, Dr. Brown, Dr. Bull and all the staff at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre and Cascade Hospice. We could never have made it through this journey with Dad if it wasn’t for all of you. In lieu of flowers, we encourage donations to the Pancreatic Cancer Society. Don’t forget to have a Budweiser with “Hollywood” at beer o’clock! A procession will form at 1060 5th Ave. at 3pm on Saturday, August 2 and proceed to the Hope Curling Club for a Celebration of Life at 4pm, followed by a potluck dinner and gathering of his family and friends.
