Obituary for Robin T. Norwest

Robin T. Norwest, Age 55, passed away peacefully on Monday, December 17, 2018, at Willamette Valley Medical Center in McMinnville, Oregon. He was born July 24, 1963 in Newport, Oregon to Marce Norwest and Pauline Barney-Norwest. He spent his first few years in Lincoln City, Oregon. Around 1966 he moved to Quesnel, British Columbia with his mom and brother, Pauline and John Norwest. His grandparents, Calvin and Wynonna Barney had already resided in Quesnel with brother, Skipper Norwest. They all lived on a ranch until it was sold around 1975. After selling the ranch they all moved to Salmon Arm, British Columbia where they stayed. In late 1990’s he then moved to Chillowack, British Columbia and started working with his brother, Skipper Norwest at Kedco Construction Inc. where they built gas stations together for a few years. In 2000, Robin and Skipper moved to Grand Ronde together to start working for Spirit Mountain. They ended up working side by side for a few years more and smoke signals did an article on them about being two tribal members and brothers working together in security. Robin worked the last 18 years in Security until he retired in August of 2018. Robin truly loved life to the fullest through simple pleasures; taking care of his dogs by feeding them McDonalds Cheeseburgers and giving them belly rubs as he called it, chatting with friends and family, going fishing with his brother, Skipper, spending time with his nephew, Trevor, and spending time with his brother, John, by going on little trips to casino’s. Robin had a real way of reaching people with his joking and loving personality. He is survived by his brothers, Skipper and John Norwest; Sister, Jackie Brown; Nieces, Amanda Brown and Watonda Brown; Nephew, Trevor Norwest.
Services will be held on Thursday, December 27th, at the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Gym, with a reception following at the Elder Center.
