Obituary

Sydney (Sandy) Robertson
BORN: NOVEMBER 15, 1944 - DIED: MARCH 24, 2020

Sydney Alexander Robertson, who is known to family and friends as "Sandy," passed away on March 24, 2020 at St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg, Manitoba. At his bedside were his loving wife Tracy (nee Goertzen) and his brother Bill Robertson. Sandy is also survived by two sons in New Brunswick: Clayton (Jessica) and Ryan (Metaxia) Robertson, and his other son Brock Kerr in New Hampshire.
Sandy was born in Saint John, New Brunswick on November 15, 1944, to Lil Fenton and Sydney William Robertson. He became an accomplished artist who began his career in his hometown where he later opened an art gallery, Alexander Robertson Art, on Prince William Street.
In 2000, Sandy married Tracy and they lived together in Saint John for ten years before moving to Altona, Manitoba. Within a few months he opened a new gallery in the studio behind their home called Alexander Robertson Art Gallery, where it remains today.
Sandy was a gifted artist even before he chose painting as a primary profession. His loving mother Lil, who was also a well-known artist, raised him in an environment surrounded by the sights and scents of watercolors, oils, and acrylics. He was further influenced by artists such as, Fred Ross, and Ted Campbell, during his study years at Vocational School.
After a formal education in architectural drafting, Sandy furthered his career by gaining design and drafting experience in Vancouver, British Columbia, Sept Iles, Quebec and Toronto, Ontario. After returning to New Brunswick and following exhibitions in local galleries, commercial centers, Copely Society of Art and various institutions, Sandy worked on a variety of commercial design projects. He then decided to advance his education at UNB Fredericton where he obtained a Bachelor of Education Degree. Sandy enjoyed teaching part-time; it also helped enable him to focus on turning painting into his primary profession.
Sandy lived a colorful life. He was blessed with many friends and liked for his sharp wit and robust sense of humour. Early in his teens he was in air cadets, played the guitar, and excelled at swimming and track and field. In his late teens he enjoyed rugby, driving fast cars, (especially his 1970 Camaro) and playing an electric guitar in a local rock 'n' roll band; the Flames.
Sandy was always a spiritual person and spent years searching for the meaning and purpose of life. In 2001 he began studying the Bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses and was baptized in 2003. He began attending meetings at the Kingdom Hall with his wife Tracy and together they enjoyed helping others learn about the Bible. He loved explaining to others what he had learned. Sandy was forever grateful to his spiritual teacher and mentor Cecil Vibert (Saint John) for his guidance, friendship and support for the past 19 years. His other close friends are too numerous to list, but they know who they are.
Sandy & Tracy were inseparable during their life together and enjoyed many different activities through the years such as traveling, boating, hiking, gardening, writing and painting together. Sandy often played the guitar while Tracy sang along quietly. They both felt strongly that even if death should separate them, they would see each other again in a future Paradise and be reunited forever.
In view of the present circumstances, a celebration of Sandy’s life will be determined at a future date/time.
Memorial donations in memory of Sandy may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

Wow!! I can't stop thinking of what I heard today, Tuesday, May 26, 2020. My long time friend has left to be with his Mom and Dad and I wish we could have reunited after he left his NB home. What a great friend to grow up with - such a talent as well as a "special friend". It was always a delight to be in his presence. Miss you Brother!! Lots of memories. RIP Sandy. from Stephen (Sonny) Mosher of Saint John, NB.

Remember the time he took it upon himself to repair my camper. He was very intent to repair my failing seals which caused the windows to blow open while being driven. The artist in him insisted on repairing. Itnwas such an act of kindness. Especially as We had only just met half an hour earlier.

Some of my favourite memories of Sandy are the times when he would stop in at my studio on Main Street in Emerson and talk about Art for an hour or so. We both agreed that our lives had been incredibly enriched by Art and we tried hard to pass that enrichment onto the societies in which we lived. Sandy was an excellent judge for our Art Shows, because of his vast knowledge of styles and skill levels. His wit and charm will be greatly missed. Deepest sympathy to you Tracy.
