Growing up in New Waterford, Robbie loved to spend time out the country fishing & hunting with his dad & uncle's. He was an avid boxer and he had a love for the sport that lasted his whole life. He was a great boxer & loved getting in the ring or being in the gym training. Robbie earned the nickname "Rock-a-bye Robbie" during his boxing career a title he carried proudly. To know Robbie was to love him, his infectious smile and big blue eyes could light up any room he entered. In Robbie's short life he worked out in Alberta for many years doing seismic, where he made lifelong friendships. Robbie truly loved life and he lived it to the fullest. One of his favorite sayings was "live everyday like it was your last”. Robbie truly was the most generous person in the entire world, he would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need and would drop everything to be there in an instant. He was not shy and loved being the center of attention, in his own words "he was sexy as hell, and he owned it".
