In loving memory of Robin Victor Oliver who sadly passed away on 25th June 2020, aged 68 years.

Robin will be forever missed by his loving wife Carol, sons James and Adam, daughter Jenna, family and friends.

Floral tributes may be sent to arrive by 10.15 am on Thursday 16th July 2020, c/o John Weir Funeral Directors, 130-132 High Street, Rainham, Kent, ME8 8AR, or if desired, donations in memory of Robin may be made online via this site for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

Robin chose the Royal Marsden for charity donations in his memory as they provided him with the most amazing care over the last 6 years. They are the most caring people, who always remember you and speak to you as friends. The many treatments Robin received were always done with the utmost concern and consideration. Helping them to continue their work is a really worthwhile cause and was close to Robin's heart.

Robin wanted a celebration of his life rather than mourning of his passing, and we plan to organise this for when it is possible to do so.

We will however be raising a glass in his honour on Thursday 16th of July so please feel free to join us where ever you may be.

Robin was born in Lambeth and lived his early life in Surrey Docks, with his parents Victor and Alice, and two younger brothers, Stephen and Colin. The family moved to Rainham during Robin’s last year of school.

Robin and Carol met on holiday at the Riviera Lido in Bognor Regis, and were married 2 years later. They went on to share nearly 42 years of happy marriage, and had 3 children: James, Adam and Jenna. He then went on to become a grandfather to four grandchildren, Harrison, Annabelle. Lilian and Emilia who he loved very much.

Sport was huge part of Robin’s life. He was a life long Millwall supporter and played football, tennis, cricket and was a keen golfer. The other great love of Robin’s life was music and he enjoyed going to the West End, eating out and going on holiday with Carol and friends.

Robin was most at home surrounded by friends and family. He had a tremendous sense of humour and when he laughed, it came from deep within and it showed; he laughed a lot, and it was often the first sign that he had arrived in the building. His jokes often left a little something to be desired, but they were always well-intentioned. Robin was very good at putting people at ease, starting conversations out of nowhere, and making friends wherever he went. He was full of love and life and enjoyed bringing people together.

One of the best descriptions of Robin was that he was always two Whiskeys up on the rest of the world.

I always thought Robin was a Gillingham supporter. I didn't realise he was a fellow Millwall fan. R.I.P cousin you will be missed.
