In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Robert's wife said: "Bob always beat to his own drum and stayed true to himself in all of his endeavours."

"Although an accomplished actor, his true art was living fully.

"He was a photographer, drummer, raconteur and gallery owner. His love of the ocean kept him in Malibu, and he had great tales of his adventures paddling to Catalina from there.

"Bob also had a constant interest in developing his internal martial arts practice."
