Trucking pioneer killed in avalanche

A member of the trucking pioneer family that founded RTL Robinson Enterprises was killed Jan. 29 near McBride, B.C. by an avalanche, according to the B.C. Coroners Service. The avalanche hit a group snowmobiling in a gully, killing 55-year-old Ricky Robinson and four others from Alberta. Robinson had been residing in Spruce Grove, Alta. after the family sold the business a decade ago. Richard Robinson, Ricky's father, started the trucking business in Yellowknife in 1968. Today's Trucking reported a service to remember Robinson was to be held today in Stony Plain, Alta.
