Robbie was born in Clanton, Alabama on June 17, 1933 to Samuel Monroe Robinson and Mayvis Pauline Littleton. At a young age, he joined the United States Army and served over 21 years including two tours in Vietnam. After retiring in 1972, he became a long-time resident of Leesville. During his early years he owned a bar called the Dog House Lounge. He also worked at Fort Polk participating in construction projects, and bar tended at the former Leesville location of the American Legion Post 387. He would later raise rabbits and once again work at Fort Polk as a role player supporting JRTC.
During his free time, Robbie loved to read. He was a big fan of Louis Lamar and many other authors who wrote about the old west. His book collection on westerns has grown large and he was very fond of Perry Mason, Matlock, Heat of the Night, and Law & Order. In the afternoons, he would go down to the American Legion Post 145 or VFW Post 3106 to share a drink with family and friends.
