He then started working in the oilfield where he gained the name “Hollywood.” Robert later found his passion as a crane operator and was always chasing the next biggest crane. He took great pride in being a “brother of the hook.”
Robert became a father to his son, Ryder, at the age of 21 years old. He married Lindsey Jensen Bailey October 19, 2012; they had just celebrated their 10 year anniversary.

Robert took great pride in the co-parenting relationship he and Lindsey had with Megan and AJ Llewellyn, Ryder’s mother and stepfather. He was extremely proud of the family he created.
Robert had a true love for the sport of Jiu Jitsu with the life long goal of achieving his black belt. He also enjoyed bird hunting and Baffin Bay trips on the Kennedy shoreline with friends. Robert loved life and lived it to the fullest. He had a true passion for traveling and loved to take spontaneous trips to Mexico.
