  Oscar Robles Bayardo, 77, “kicked the bucket” (the words he asked to be used) on Aug. 6, 2022. The original OSO GRANDE was born in Empalme, Sonora, Mexico on Nov. 27, 1944, and moved to America in his teens.

  He is survived by his 8 children, Luis, Jorge (Ani, el OSO CHICO), Suzi (his Angel Eyes), Laura (the Mean One), Isabel, Fina, Oscar (Boy), and Toni, along with 18 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. He loved them very much and would refer to himself as “Otro Tata” and “Old Tata” to them.
  He is also survived by 8 of his 10 siblings, Lupe, Rene, Zorina, Martha, Raul, Sergio, Lydia, and Irene; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
  Oscar moved to San Manuel in 1973 with his then wife Lucile McCarty Bayardo and was actively involved in coaching his kids in little league and softball. He also loved coaching the kids of the Tri-Community. He worked for the mine as a hoist man until it closed down and would always share stories of his run-ins with White Boots to his children. He was an avid sports fan and loved his LA Dodgers, AZ Wildcats, Miners and rooted for anyone playing against the Snakes aka Diamondbacks.
  An open house will be held on Aug. 27, 2022, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Cultural Hall in San Manuel (101 N Giffin Ave) 1-3 p.m. We welcome all to come and share stories of our father and encourage you to wear your LA Dodger, Arizona Wildcat, and/or San Manuel Miner gear.
