STRUMP, Robin Iain Patrick September 13, 1950 - May 8, 2018 On Tuesday, May 8th Iain took his last bike ride on the Trans Canada Trail near Shawnigan Lake, B.C., passing suddenly at the age of 67 while on the trail. He was the loving husband of Sandra and cherished father of Reade. Iain's sister Pamela, sister-in-law Laurie (Craig), and mother-in-law Grace Reade, will miss his unconditional support and presence. He was the ultimate Uncle Iain to Aimee, David, Leif, Cole, Jonah, Paisley, Chase and Troy and many friends of Reade. Iain graduated with a MBA from The University of Western Ontario. He joined the TD Bank Group in 1974, leading a distinguished 35 year career with postings in Toronto, Los Angeles and Calgary. Known for an aggressive, get-it-done style, he cared deeply for his team and customers alike. He finished his banking career as Senior Vice President, Prairie Region retiring in 2006. Retirement took the Strumps to Arbutus Ridge on Vancouver Island to live by the ocean, close to family, while enjoying golf, cycling and touring around in Iain's fast vehicles. Iain was a challenged golfer, yet an ardent ball retriever. World travels and California winters made many more opportunities to make wonderful memories with family and friends alike. Iain was a Husband, Father, Uncle, Friend and Banker like no other. Iain possessed a keen wit, sharp sense of humour and had a way with words that certainly kept us entertained! Though he has left us unexpectedly, the love, laughter and memories will live on forever. A private service was held Sunday, May 13th on a favourite biking trail. The family invites the many friends and family to celebrate his life as he lived his, surrounded by many and raising a pint to a life well lived. Condolences may be offered online at
