He was the 11th child that Dominic and Katharine Cummiskey Kinsley had out of a total of 13 children that they had. Robert was born on May 15th, 1932 on the farm that his family owned in Wilmot, Pennsylvania. At the time, Wilmot, Pennsylvania was still known as Wilmot Township. Robert lost his father when he was just four years old; his father passed away. In November of 1952, when he was 20 years old, he enlisted in the service of the United States Air Force and became a member of the military. After that, Robert’s mother would pass away exactly two months later.
During his time in the Air Force, Robert completed the necessary coursework to become a radio mechanic. He spent the most of his time in the service stationed in Alaska, and during that time, he and his maintenance team took part in a number of military events against other fighter squadrons. These competitions took place against other fighter squadrons. At the close of the year 1955, Robert was granted a posting at the Bunker Hill Air Force Base in the state of Indiana. It was there that he would later meet the woman who would become his wife. Her name was Rita Cunningham, and she was the daughter of Carl and Jessie Neff Cunningham. Rita was born in Logansport.

In the year 1960, Robert and Rita relocated their family into the house that they had purchased in Falls Church, Virginia. They had three children there: Billy, Patty, and Karen, and they raised all of them there. They made going camping a yearly habit that took place over the summer months. Another pastime that Robert and Rita liked doing together on the weekends was participating in bowling leagues. The three children of Robert and Rita would all earn their degrees from schools in the Commonwealth of Virginia where their parents were educated. Robert was the last person in his generation to have been born during that time. On a piece of paper that he kept tacked up next to his desk, he wrote down the date of death of each of his siblings who had passed away before he died.
