Robin Wearing died suddenly from an aortic aneurysm in his Montreal home on November 23, 2017 surrounded by family. Robin is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Esther (Mingay) Wearing , his son Ben (Jenn) and daughter Alison (Mathieu) and his five energetic grandchildren, Paige, Charlotte, Xavier, Evelyn and Lukas. Rob leaves to mourn his brother Rick of Huntsville and his sister Daphne of London. He is predeceased by his father (Morris) and mother (Jane).
Rob was born in Toronto and grew up in London, Ontario. His love for the outdoors was cultivated from his experiences at Camp Ahmek where he spent most of his summers as a camper and counselor. A talented athlete, Rob played a variety of sports but particularly excelled at football, which he continued to play during his years at the University of Western Ontario where he was a proud Mustang.
In 1973, Rob moved to Montreal to work at Selwyn House School where he spent over 33 years as a teacher, coach and retired in 2006 as Director of the Senior School. He was notoriously known for rooting for the underdog and always had the student's best interests at heart. His guidance and influence are his legacy.
There will be a celebration of Rob’s life at the Mount Royal Cemetery (1297 Chemin de la Forêt Outremont, Quebec H2V 2P9) on Sunday December 3rd at 11am, followed by a reception at the Atwater Club (3505 Atwater, Montreal, Quebec H3H 1Y2).
