While growing up on the family farm, Robbie had a love for all animals, especially his horse “Pride."

He cherished the times spent with his family especially his great-nieces and nephews. He could often be seen driving them on his golf cart, embracing life by going fishing.
Treasured memories will be forever in the hearts of siblings Michael (Angela) Ward of Brasher, Kevin (Jane) Ward of Massena and Jeffery (Christina) Ward of Brasher. He is also survived by one niece, six nephews, 2 great nieces and 3 great nephews.
