Biographical history

Kenneth Allison Roblin was born in 1896. He was known as Kenneth "Kayo / K.O." Roblin, and his wife's name was Myrna D. Their son, Paul K. Roblin, graduated from West Vancouver High School in 1958.

The family originally camped in West Vancouver but eventually bought a lot at 26th Street and Marine Drive in the early 1930s. In 1937 the Roblin family lived at 2862 Highbury, and moved in 1941 to 2613 Mathers Avenue. Kenneth worked for the Province newspaper as a salesman and wrote a small publication for the campers in West Vancouver during the Regattas. He was also a member of the Pacific Coast Militia Rangers from 1942 to 1945. Kenneth Roblin died on September 22, 1978 at the age of 82.
