Roberto attended San Manuel High School 1995-1998 and later received his GED. He had previously worked as a mason laborer and landscaper. Roberto took pride in his Apache native heritage and enjoyed riding horses and spending time in the outdoors. He looked forward to spending time with his family, having carne asada cookouts, rock hunting and going to casino. He devoted his quality time to his son – his pride and joy. Roberto had the biggest heart especially for his family & friends and was a very generous person. He was the first to step up and give if anyone needed anything; whether it was quality time, a good laugh, clothes, money, etc… he touched many hearts and showed you he was a sincere person. He had an outgoing personality and could always bring a smile to your face.
May Roberto rest in peace and continue to live in our hearts and great memories. He is truly loved and will be greatly missed by all.
