Obituary Overview

In Loving Memory


It is with great sadness the family announces the sudden passing of Robert Toupin on April 19th, 2022 in his home. Robert will be remembered as a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, and uncle.


Robert had a great impact on many lives beyond his family as a friend, coach, and mentor. Coaching and his athletes were his life long passion; the impact he left on each of them will stay with them forever. After coaching, Robert enjoyed golfing with family and friends, skiing and biking with his grandchildren, and was very active in the community. At home, Robert was famous for his barbequing and smoking talents along with his dedication to his vegetable garden.


We lost him much too early and hearts are breaking everywhere. With this devastating loss, our lives will never be as full. A celebration of life will be held in Robert’s honour on Wednesday April 27th, 2022 from 2pm-5pm at Kelly Funeral Home, 2370 St. Joseph Blvd. Orleans.

Nancy, I am so sorry to hear of Robert's death. He was the coach that every parent wanted their child to have: helping them to be their best, while also helping them to maintain perspective and remember the role that sport was playing in their development into responsible, strong adults outside of the pool. I'm so glad you two found each other, and so sad that your time together has been cut far too short. Hugs, Donna

Nancy, I am saddened to hear of Robert's sudden passing. During the time I knew him as the East York Swim Club's Head Coach, he always impressed me with his energy and drive. He expected the best from his swimmers but also could be kind and compassionate ( but never admitting to that). My sincere condolences to you and your family.
