Captain Robin Lamb (ret.) died peacefully at his home in Point Roberts, Washington on May 18. Born in Tisdale, Saskatchewan in 1945 to Bob and Hazel Lamb, Robin was passionate about aviation from a young age.
    Intelligent and universally interested, he earned a B.Comm. and a B.A. in Economics at the University of Saskatchewan before joining Air Canada where he spent three decades as a Commercial Pilot, stationed in Toronto and Vancouver.  His passion for flight lent itself to a natural love of travel and a vibrant curiosity about other lands and people.

    In 1996, Robin moved from Vancouver to Point Roberts where he purchased an overrun air strip. Over the next years, with great perseverance and enthusiasm, he transformed the property into the Point Roberts Air Park [1RL], today a busy public-use park.
    Noted for his friendly demeanour and his wide range of interests, he was highly regarded as an interesting companion, and as a beloved son, brother, father, uncle and partner. His family has great memories from Kipabiskau Lake - wakeboarding, picking berries, fishing and roasting marshmallows.
     Robin is survived by his mother Hazel, sons Josh and Thomas (children of Susan Louise Buchanan), sons Noah, Micah, and Daniel (children of Manninagh L'Abbe), and sisters Susan and Marsha Lamb.
