Lion Jim Robinson

February 27, 2021

James Edward (Jim) Robinson: Peacefully at OTMH on February 27, 2021, in his 86th year. Predeceased by his loving wife, Bette (Pinkham). Beloved Brother of Alf Robinson. Proud father of Jamie (Christine), Jeffrey (Jennene) and Scott (Angie). Papa to the 5 best Grandchuckers Lindsay, Jim, Jeffrey, Grace & Jordan. Also lovingly remembered by Mike, Jaimie, Thomas, Zack, Eliza & Izzy. Uncle to his many beloved nieces and nephews.

Proud member of the Oakville Lions Club for many years. Treasurer of the Westwind Club in Bahamas until 2020.

Jim started his career at Imperial Oil, servicing Esso stations in the 1960's. In 1967 Jim and Bette opened a small service station in Oakville at Lakeshore & Trafalgar. Later they moved to Burlington at the corner of Guelph and Mountainside where they started Mountainside Auto Tech. From there the business grew and eventually in 2005 Jim's wish of having all 3 boys run the business came to be. Over the years Jim stepped back and became the best shuttle bus driver until his recent retirement.

Jim will be missed dearly by his many friends and family in Oakville, Burlington & Bahamas.

Many thanks to Williamsburg staff for their care over the past year and the Doctors and Nurses at OTMH.

Every year, all Lions of our district elect the Cabinet Officers of the Incoming Lion Year. They are the Zone Chairpersons and the Region Chairpersons.

The Incoming District Governor looks for Lions who are interested in holding District Committee Chairpersons as well.

The next step after your presidency is to be involved at the district level for the continuance of your Leadership Development. Discover the new world of how you could apply the knowledge, experience, and skills you acquired at the club level. You are now prepared and ready to assume a more challenging position at the district level.

Similar to the feeling when you were elected president of your club, you might think working in the district is too much work and responsibilities. Actually, it is challenging but it gives you the opportunity to face and overcome some challenges you do not encounter at the club level.

We encourage you to join the District Management Team to learn more on how our organization works at a higher level.

Your sacrifices in helping our organization grow and realize our mission are most valued.

As a Past President, you are qualified to be a Zone Chairperson and a District Committee Chairperson or a member of a District Committee.

For the elected position of a Zone Chairperson, you need to fill up the 2021 DistrictNomination and Endorsement Form. The deadline for the submission of the Nomination and Endorsement Form is on March 16, 2021, which is 30 days before the opening of the District Convention.

For those Past Zone Chairpersons who would like to run for the office of Region Chairperson, please use the attached Nomination and Endorsement Form 2021, as well. The deadline for the submission of the Nomination and Endorsement Form 2021 is on March 16, 2021 which is 30 days before the opening of the District Convention.

For the District Committee Chairpersons, all you need to do is contact the following:

  • - Incoming District Governor, Lion Year 2021-2022  
  • - Global Leadership Team Coordinator  

We will be delighted to hear which of these opportunities catches your eyes and imagination.

Stay safe and healthy.
