He married Teddy Thompson on Feb. 14, 1983, on Valentine’s Day. They eloped to Lewistown where he wanted to multitask so he grabbed a load of cake for the cows and they headed back home.

Mr. Robertson loved to build barns and shops. He was a great mechanic and loved attending auctions. Mr. Robertson enjoyed anything ag related and enjoyed bull sales. He also enjoyed taking vacations to Hawaii.
