Robbie was born April 23, 1943 in Omaha, Nebraska the son of Robert M. and Erma S. (Banker) Gill.  The family moved to Rawlins in 1945.
Robbie was raised and educated in Rawlins.  He attended Rawlins High School, and then joined the United States Navy, serving from 1960-1964.
Coming back to Wyoming, he met Rae MacMillan in Cheyenne, and they married on September 11, 1965.  They lived in Butte, Montana while Robbie worked for Monsanto, but they were soon back in Wyoming.  Robbie worked as an electrician for the Sinclair Refinery, Arch Mineral, and Louisiana Pacific.
