Due to his large contributions to students a field house at University of Nevada was constructed and named after him. He is also a prominent businessman, owning Cashell Enterprises, a hotel/casino company. He bought Bill & Effies, a truck stop, in 1967 and renamed it Boomtown Reno. He sold it in 1988 after turning the property into a casino/resort.

He managed several properties including: Karl's Silver Club (now the defunct Bourbon Square Casino) in Sparks, the Bourbon Street Hotel and Casino (now demolished) in Las Vegas and the Avi Resort & Casino for the Avi Indian Tribe in Laughlin. He was a partner in several ventures including: Carson Station (now Max Casino) in Carson City, the Comstock Hotel & Casino (now The Residences at Riverwalk Towers) in Reno and the Holiday Casino (now Harrah's) in Las Vegas. He has also owned several properties including: Winners Inn, Star Casino and Model T Truck Stop in Winnemucca and the Alamo Truck Stop in Sparks. His son, Robert Jr., was a partner in the new ownership of the Fitzgeralds Reno in downtown Reno (which is now the Whitney Peak Hotel).
