"Earnest Robitaille, 62, pioneer attorney, who deserted the law for the fickle fortunes of the oil fields only to see his first profits eaten away by later ventures, dropped dead in his office in the Robinson building today. A blood clot formed on his brain.

Robitaille was born in Kansas, of Indian and French-Canadian stock. He was graduated from the Dickinson law school, Carlisle, Pa., and from the Kansas university law school, and located in Tulsa in 1905.

Alive to the opportunities the development of oil presented, he gave up a successful practice when his first well proved a money maker and devoted himself to the oil business. But Dame Fortune, having caught his eye, skipped nimbly away. He drilled 20 more wells, and each was a dry hole.

Two daughters, Mrs.George A. Schwab, Tulsa, and Mrs.Leo McGuire, Los Angeles, and two brothers and two sisters who live in Wyandotte, Okla., are included among the survivors.

Interment is to be in the family burial plot at Wyandotte, with arrangements under the Barnes Undertaking company.

Robitaille attended the Holy Family church regularly. He lived with the Tulsa daughter at 1124 S. Columbia avenue."
