Nate was born on January 15, 1984 in Mission Viejo, California. Growing up, Nate always enjoyed reading, drawing, cooking, and the arts. These talents and passions were continued as he was employed as a Chef at Bocelli Pizza and Pasta and Majestic Ink Tattoo Shop, both in Shelbyville. Nate served in the United States Marines and was a gun enthusiast. He will be remembered as being a very protective, loving husband who was loved by a lot of people.

Cailyn was born in Camp Pendleton, California on January 22, 2004, and was an 8th grade homeschooler. She was the Robinson Family's "outdoorsy girl," who loved her goats as well as her dogs, cats, and rabbits. Wise beyond her years, Cailyn enjoyed reading, science, and art, and wanted to be a veterinarian when she grew up. An extraordinary girl, she was loved by everyone and had the ability to reach out to others and make them feel loved.
Gillian was born in Orange, California on June 27, 2009, and was a 2nd grade homeschooler. Like her sister, she loved animals too, especially horses.
