I had the astonishing good fortune to attend Whitehouse Elementary and Anthony Wayne High School with Robbie. He was one of the fairest kids on the playground. Whether the game was marbles, Pom-Pom Pullaway, or Baseball, he knew all the rules and played fairly! When bullies disagreed, Robbie had a non-abusive way of smiling and nodding, but he made it clear that you had broken a fundamental rule of the game. I came to the opinion that he would grown up to become one of the best known referees in Christendom! Well done Robbie! Wait up for me and we will play some soccer... --Classmate Michael Elling AW/57, Sharon, Tennessee
