ROBBIE MacIAN MILNER Passed away in the circle of love at his home after a sudden illness at the age of 55. Robbie lovingly joins his devoted parents Ian and Tessie (nee Mask) Milner whom he has missed dearly since 2007 and 1991. Robbie is sadly missed by his little sister Heather Campbell (Haya) and brothers Brian Milner and Barry Milner and wife Patricia Watson and is fondly remembered by his niece Alicia (Baby Campbell) and her fiancé Mark Vrieswyk and by godparents Marcia Kylie and Doug Milner. Robbie, who was born with Down Syndrome, led a rich full life, filled with ability, thanks to his devoted family and caring neighbours and friends. Robbie was born with special gifts that enriched and touched the lives of many; his capacity to love and be loved, his determination and his sweet and devilish nature. Robbie was a special gift to us and was loved. His family at Community Living Kingston will always be remembered for providing Robbie with a kind, loving, supportive and independent home life right until his last day. Lena, Rob, Krista, Kevin, Lisa, Dee, Claire, Krystle, Jasmine, Denise and Felicia, Joe, Jessica, Scott, Kristy, Tina, Karen and his housemates Mary, Bob and Glenn lived each day with fun and laughter. Robbie also had a special affection for Trees who returned his love. Robbie enjoyed family vacations at Casa T and in Muskoka and enjoyed fishing adventures with his best friend Ken Logan where Robbie always caught the biggest fish. Robbie participated in Special Olympics, bowling, Leisure Connections baseball, floor hockey and Scouts with his many special friends and attended Crescent Day Program. Robbie was blessed to have outings with his best buddies, most recently Jessica Alverez and Brock Powell. Robbie was fond of the Kingston Access Bus which provided his last trip home and was a big fan of policing. Robbie was always the life of the party would dance the night away. The moments you have really lived are the moments you have done things in the spirit of love. Family and friends will be received at the Gordon F. Tompkins Funeral Homes - 435 Davis Dr. (Taylor Kidd Blvd. and Centennial Dr.) on Friday, March 23, 2012 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, 490 Days Rd., on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at 11 a.m. Funeral Mass and committal with prayers will follow at St. Martin of Tours, Whitney, Ontario in the late Spring 2012.
