Dr. Robbie Case

Robbie Case was born in Barrie, Ontario in 1944 to Frank and Jesse Case. The name that appears on his birth certificate is "Thomas Robert Case" though his grandmother took to calling him Robbie very early in his lifetime. He had two younger siblings, Julia and Peter. While Robbie spent his early school years at Hamstead Public school and Lower Canada College, his summers were perhaps the most memorable.

Robbie's family spent the summertime at the cottage his family shared with Robbie's aunts, which had no shortage of cousins (14!) but a sincere lack of electricity and other luxuries. Robbie's days were spent entertaining himself and several younger cousins by swimming, sailing, and chopping wood, among other activities.
