It is with great sadness to make known that Mark A. Robbin, MD, 60, of Avon passed away at home on Saturday, (August 24, 2013) after a short illness. Mark is survived by his wife Carolyn, a son, Perry, and two step children, Suzanne and Alex Hoerle, sisters Barbara Silverman and Dana Robbin and brother Peter Robbin. Mark graduated from Tufts University and UCONN Medical School. He was a longtime primary care physician in private practice in Simsbury from 1986 to 2012 when he joined Hartford Healthcare Medical Group, Avon. He was a member of the Hartford Hospital Medical Staff since 1985 and had hospital appointments at St. Francis and John Dempsey Hospital. Among his appointments were medical director/industrial medicine at Ensign Bickford Industries, McLean Home, Avon Nursing Home, Brightview Nursing Home, Governor’s House, Meadowbrook Nursing Home. Mark was truly dedicated to his patients and to the art and science of patient care. Mark was kind, loyal, engaging, generous and known for his quick wit, with a joke on hand to lighten moods. He spent long hours working to assure his patients’ needs were met often at significant personal expense. Among his enjoyments were his love of golf, art, reading, travel and spending time with his wife, children and Labradoodle Willa and of course his daily crossword puzzle. He was predeceased by his parents Harriet (Cartin) and Joseph Robbin.
A private memorial will be held at the convenience of the family. Donations can be made in Mark’s name to Hartford Hospital, ATTN: Fund Development, 80 Seymour Street, P.O. Box 5037, Hartford, CT 06102. To sign the guest book for Mark, please visit online at www.weinsteinmortuary.com/funerals.cfm
