He continued to land work on the small screen throughout the 1980s, appearing as Walter Lankershim in Dynasty, the title character in J.J. Starbuck, as well as appearances in Dallas, Harts of the West and Murder, She Wrote.

Robertson also followed in the footsteps of Ronald Reagan and Robert Taylor by narrating radio show Death Valley Days.

He is survived by his wife Susan.
