August 1, 1937 – December 1, 2016
Trevor was born in the small town of Kellits, Jamaica to Reginald and Louise Robinson. He earned a scholarship to the prestigious boarding school, Munro College, to which he was inducted into their Hall of Fame in 2016 for his contribution to echocardiography. While studying in Buffalo, New York, Trevor met the love of his life, Ranga, who had travelled halfway across the globe from Madras, India. In 1966, Trevor and Ranga were married and in 1973, Trevor joined the cardiology staff at St. Michael’s Hospital. In 2008, Dr. Robinson received the lifetime Achievement Award from the Canadian Society of Echocardiography. Dr. Robinson, known as ‘TR’, devoted countless hours to the treatment of his thousands of patients until his retirement in December 2015. For over 50 years, Trevor and Ranga remained inseparable. Trevor was most proud of his two children, Lisa (John Aquino) and Rohan (Sylvie) and his three grandchildren, David, Laurel and Kate. They sorely miss their Appa but know that he will always be watching over them. Trevor also leaves behind a brother, Barry, and two sisters, Hope and Joy. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to all of the staff at Toronto General Hospital for providing Trevor with such phenomenal and compassionate care to the very end.
