Hugh Levi Robinson was born on November 11, 1958 in Melita, Manitoba. He was the first child of Fred and Ruth (nee Kurtz) Robinson. Hugh grew up on the family farm south of Tilston, Manitoba. He was always helping with the farm growing up. Hugh attended Tilston School and later Pierson School for his high school education.

Hugh met the love of his life Pamela Parley at a social. Pamela was attending Brandon University studying for her degree in education, so many trips back and forth to visit her in Brandon, Manitoba soon followed. The two were wed November 27, 1982. The newlyweds rented a trailer down the road from the family farm which Hugh worked on, they lived there with Pamela’s beloved cat Whiskers who Hugh came to care for deeply.

They later bought Matilda and George Phillips farm across the road from the family farm. This is where they welcomed their first child Nicholas on September 15, 1988. They later built their house on the farm in 1993 and welcomed their second child Ashley on December 24, 1993.

The two lived a great life together with Pamela unfortunately passing away in a car crash on January 9, 2003. Hugh then spent his life working on the farm and raising Nicholas and Ashley. Hugh passed away on September 13, 2022 at St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg, Manitoba following a battle with heart failure.

Hugh enjoyed playing hockey in his younger years, playing goalie with the Tilston Flames and later Ruin’d Bruins. He also enjoyed following his favourite hockey team, the Winnipeg Jets, watching all of their games and coming into Winnipeg to attend games with Ashley.

Hugh enjoyed hunting over the years. Deer hunting every fall around the farm, spending winters elk hunting at the family cabin near Rossburn, Manitoba and bear hunting in the fall and spring there in the later years.

Hugh is survived by his son Nicholas, daughter Ashley, father Fred, mother-in-law Margaret Parley, sisters Wanda Currie and Rosalie Robinson, brother Edward, brothers-in-law Brian (Julie) Parley and Gord (Cindy) Parley, nephews Adam Parley, Brendan Currie and Braden Parley, nieces Darcie Parley, Lauren Parley and Madison Parley, and his cat Scout.
