ROBERT CHRISTIAN DONALDSON
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 Ross mere 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.
