I found this birth record. Could you have the wrong middle name for him?

This would make him 71-72 now not in his 80s.

This is the only Robert Y still living that I found.

[Pob 534, Woodstock, Vermont 05091]

It looks like he remarried in 1974.

This is possibly the same man. You may need to send for some of these divorce records to tell for sure. Start with the one in Texas.

Here is a real good lead. A half-sister!

Here is apparently another wife and child:

[2828 Walnut Bend #227, Houston, Texas 77042] (this might be the most recent, no date was given)

Look for their marriage records in Texas. Then you can try to locate them.
