  1. I would like to thank Uncle Robert for all he and Tia Bertha did for us as kids after my parents passed away many years ago in the 1960’s. He was there for me, even though he and Tia were far off in other places. Thank you Tio, you were always nice and loving. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Rest in Peace, I love you.
    Our deepest condolences from the Padrón family – Houston, TX.

  2. In loving memory through the years with sincere and deep condolences:

    Uncle Robert, as I always called him, was an awesome grandfather to Ethan (my son who never had a maternal grandfather). He was a special person and simply the best uncle.
    He was very intelligent and we knew of his bravery. I salute him for fighting for our country.
    His achievements were many, and we spent many hours talking about his past, his travels, and we loved to listen to his many stories as he had much wisdom.
    He was truly a great man and he always knew what mattered in life.
    Few of us have the opportunity to meet a person that will leave an ever-lasting impression on you…I was blessed to have Uncle Robert in my life. His love and guidance throughout the years is beyond expression. – he simply loved everyone…a rare individual that loved life, the Lord, Aunt Bertha and his family. Life will be hard and different without his presence. He left us with wonderful memories and a love that will always be felt.
    I send my love to Aunt Bertha, Bonny, Barbara, the rest of his family and friends and share in your loss.
    May you find freedom in the afterlife, Uncle Robert…we love you very much.

    May your future travels be guided by the wings of angels…you will be sorely missed.

    May you rest in peace.

  3. One of my fondest memories of Uncle Robert was when I was stationed in Norfolk Virginia on the USS Nimitz. Uncle Robert had already retired after 32 years in the Navy. I could always tell his pride for the Military and Navy service.

    The USS Nimitz had a family day cruise on the Nimitz. I went to see Uncle Robert and asked him if he was interested in going on the Cruise (out to the VA Capes), you would not believe the biggest smile on his face when I asked him. The cruise was a success, Uncle Robert, Aunt Bertha and Bonnie enjoyed the cruise and the awe of the size of the Nimitz. There were many memories, this one stands out because of his love for the Navy.

    See you at the Dock Uncle Robert.

    Love Always
