ROBERT CHRISTIAN DONALDSON
(ROBB)
January 14, 1968 - June 7, 2019

Robert passed away on Friday, June 7, 2019, due to a horrendous, random act of
violence.
Robert was born on a Sunday at the Women's Pavilion Hospital. He grew up in East Kildonan. Robert attended Angus McKay, John Henderson, Miles Macdonell Collegiate, and Kildonan East Collegiate. He was an
extremely athletic individual throughout his childhood. Robert's passion for sports had him being a 5-Pin Bowler at Rossmere Lanes, hockey player at Bronx Park C.C. and North Kildonan C.C., football player at Chalmers C.C., and baseball at Melrose C.C. and North Kildonan C.C. In recent years, Robb was coaching football at Valour C.C. while his son, Christian played on the same team.
Robb was also an entrepreneur, as he owned "CC Windows & Pools".
Robert was the best person you could ever meet. He brought joy and laughter and
beautiful children to this world. He knew how to make you smile and he was there if you needed a hand. Robert was kind and loving and even though he isn't with us physically anymore, he is in our hearts no matter what. Nothing will be the same without him, but I know he is watching down on us.
Robert will be missed by his parents, Carol and Mitch Mitchell, Amber (daughter),
Christian (son), Darianna, Justice, Kimberly and Mika (daughters), partner Jessica,
(sisters), Regan and Ryon (brother-in-law Ryan), Megan and Linda (aunts), Jordan
(nephew), Irish (niece), Josh (nephew), Nicole (cousin), and numerous cousins, extended
family and friends.
Robert is predeceased by his father Walter Donaldson Jr., both sets of grandparents, Phyllis and Earl Brisco, and Annie Belle and Walter Donaldson Sr., and Mumford Devine (uncle).
We would like to thank the Good
Samaritans, First Responders and HSC staff for all their efforts to keep Robert alive in spite of his injuries.
A Celebration of Life will be held on
Sunday, June 30, 2019 at Bronx Park C.C. (720 Henderson Hwy.) at 3:00 p.m. led by Pastor Bruce Martin. Viewing will be held one hour before the celebration beginning at 2:00 p.m. In honor of Robb, we ask that people wear their favorite sports jersey to his celebration. Please no flowers!

  • I have known Robb for many years, he was someone special. Robb made a difference in this world. One of my favorite things about Robb was his laugh, I hear it when I think of him and I will cherish that for ever. My deepest condolences to his children and family during this difficult time. He was taken far too soon. - Posted by: Darlene Davidson (Friend) on: Jun 24, 2019

  • There are no words to express the sadness and the senselessness of what has happened. Robert left a legacy with his children, both his own, and those he coached. He was a supportive and caring individual. Remembering the good times: the beautiful smile, the warm tones of his laughter, the light within. Through time, may Peace Be With You All.

  • My sincere condolences are extended to Carol and Mitch and entire family. I have so many great memories of Robert - from the first time he came over when the boys were in kindergarten, his "curls" sticking out of his hockey helmet and of course that wonderful smile he would flash are just a few. I am so grateful I got to see Robert a few weeks ago and gave him a great big hug. - Posted by: June Jones (Family Friend) on: Jun 22, 2019

  • Dear Carol, Mitch and family: I have so many fond memories of Robert as a young boy and as a teenager hanging around our house with Brian and the rest of the gang. He was such a great kid. In particular I remember the times we share as families with the kids when they went to Saskatoon to participate in the national YBC bowling competition. I'm not sure the boys appreciate their crazy mothers hooting and hollering but...that's what mothers are for - Isn't it? To embarrass their kids. I share in your sorrow in his passing but will always have a picture in my mind of his gorgeous but mischievous smile. XXX Mary Field - Posted by: Mary Field (Friend) on: Jun 22, 2019
