It is with heavy hearts yet appreciation for a life well lived, that the family of Alan “Buzz” George Robinson announces his peaceful passing which occurred on Sunday, March 11, 2018 at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Born 1946 in Moncton, he was the son of the late Shirley (McBrady) and Clarence Robinson.
