TuGo Announces Passing of Patrick Robinson

(Richmond, BC, Dec 1, 2023) - It is with deep sadness that TuGo announces the passing of Patrick Robinson, former CEO, on November 28, 2023.

Patrick is survived by his wife, Gabriela, daughter, Daisy, mother, Georgina, brother, Jay, sister, Kathy, and other members of the Robinson/Starko family.

Patrick, who many fondly knew as Pat, will be missed by his extended TuGo family, which he leaves with many lasting memories.

In his nearly 30 years at TuGo, Patrick guided the company’s strategic direction and was integral in TuGo’s 2015 rebrand from Travel Underwriters. Together with his sister, Kathy Starko, and other Executive members, Patrick led the company to many prosperous years. He was also a well-known Travel Health Insurance Association (THIA) member.

Patrick courageously battled cancer for a number of years, before his passing, at the age of 62.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Step Forward Health, an organization supporting mental health that was very important to Pat: https://stepforwardhealth.ca/ways-to-give/.
