Born and raised in Lewisburg, WV, Robbie attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, then became a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, graduating with a Business/Marketing Degree from Florida Atlantic University.  While working to establish himself in the field of finance, he was employed in the hospitality industry. He had a passion for snowboarding, skateboarding and the beach. He loved animals and looked forward to having his own French Bulldog.  Known for his quick wit, infectious smile, and a kind and compassionate spirit, Robbie was at his best when he was debating an idea or making a point, loving to argue and be right. He had a sense of style even when working out. Interested in history, travel and Italian culture, Italian cooking was a passion he indulged in, having learned the secrets of many great cooks, especially from his grandmother, Elizabeth DiMattia.  He will be missed by many.
