He is known as "Uncle Si" on the A&E TV hit, Duck Dynasty. Along with his show, he is a backwoodsman, duck hunter, and philosopher. He is the brother of Duck Commander founder Phil Robertson and uncle to Willie, Jase and Jep, his show co-stars. On the show, he has a penchant for telling stories that have been stretched with fiction. Growing up in Louisiana with six other brothers and sisters, his family lived in a small log cabin and were very poor. However, his older brothers fed the family by hunting and that is how the family tradition of hunting started. He has been married for over 40 years and has two children and seven grandchildren.

In an interview with LifeWay Christian Resources, he said this about his faith in God and the success of Duck Dynasty, "A lot of people say, 'Hey, God doesn't have a sense of humor.' Yes, He does. God has a great sense of humor. Look at me. Look at Phil. Look at Willie. Look at Jase. God has taken four guys that look like five miles of muddy road and made them famous in the TV world. [People] ask us all the time, 'How did you become so successful?' That would be one answer: The Almighty is the one who has made this a success."

While he has experienced success, he also credits God for being there for him in the difficult times. He said, "I wonder when people run into bad times, when they go to the doctor and they find out, 'I'm dying of cancer,' and they don't believe in God, who do they turn to? We are all mortal. We are all going in that grave. There ain't but one way you gonna beat it. If you've got something to offer me better than [Christ], I'm all ears. [Jesus] beat the grave and He promises you that since He beat it, if you believe in Him, He'll make you beat it." 

His name is Si Robertson.
