Roberto devoted his life to his family. He was a loving father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend to many. His entire life he drove semi-trucks. He drove to and from many places and did it with passion. Never did he dread working. He made sure he did everything possible for his family to have everything they needed. He always took the extra step for everyone and never left anything at just the minimum.

He will be missed dearly.
