The Man Who Grew Up As Robert Montgomery's Son, And Then Became Elizabeth Montgomery's Brother

Robert Montgomery, Jr., was born on January 6, 1936.  A handsome young lad, he made an attempt to break into movies, but after over three years and only a few small roles, he gave it up and became a more successful stockbroker.

At some point, Robert or "Skip" moves to Florida where, among other pursuits, opens a convenience store decorated with hunting trophies and movie memorabilia of his father's.  The photo below was taken in 1983 at the age of 47.

I wish I knew more about Mr. Montgomery, Jr.  I know he was married three times, became the father of three and died before he could finish the book he was writing about his father.  He was only 64, dying as did his father and sister (age 62) of cancer, a trait one would hope your offspring would not inherit.
