Ken Robinson was born in an Eastern Ontario farmhouse in 1927. Following World War II, he served for a short time in the RCAF as an instrument technician and then as a chaplain’s assistant, receiving his commission in 1952.
He graduated with a BA from Carleton University and an MDiv from McGill University and was ordained into the United Church of Canada ministry in 1956, serving congregations in Ontario, Quebec, and Nova Scotia. A few years ago, Ken was granted a Doctor of Divinity honoris causa by United Theological College, Montreal.
Ken has published a book titled, What Ever Happened to the Original Gospel?
Ken married Florence McDougall in 1955. They are proud of their three children and four grandchildren. Flo and Ken gave voluntary leadership in United Marriage Encounter for some twenty-five years, assisting couples to improve their communication.
He has been an avid gardener, determined genealogist, willing volunteer, and fix-it enthusiast. Music has been a strong interest for Ken from Jew’s harp and kazoo in childhood to trombone in his youth, singing the bass line ever since. Theological reflection is a stimulant he enjoys.
Flo and Ken have been retired for many years and now reside in Ottawa.
