Robert Lee Romero, “Bob” as he was affectionately called, was carried home to his eternal life at the age of 66 on Nov. 23, 2016. Robert was born on Oct. 27, 1950 in San Antonio, TX. He is preceded in death by his parents, Arthur Joseph and Janie Olivo Romero, his son Ronnie Romero, great grandson, Marky Gonzales and his brother-in-law Rolando Jimenez as well as brothers Arthur Romero, Jr and Dennis Romero. Robert is survived by his loving wife, Janie Esquivel Romero, daughter, Becky Romero of Austin, TX, brothers, Manuel (Virgie) Romero and Michael Romero, his sisters, Mary Jayne Jimenez and Deborah (Marko) Lopez, step-daughter, Michelle (Jacob) Esparza, Rosa DeLeon (Adrian) Avalos and Sixto DeLeon and partner Annette Mercado, his sister-in-law, Irene (Richard) Casares, Henry Esquivel of Las Vegas, Chon (Janie) Esquivel, Pat (Melinda) Esquivel.

Robert worked for Artcarve for several years, he then worked for Wide-Lite where he eventually separated due to disability conditions. Bobby lived life to the fullest. He enjoyed fishing, playing baseball, family gatherings and cherished time spent with his brothers and sisters in Christ. The greatest of this was the love Robert had for his wife Janie. He never lacked for nothing. We are going to miss our brother but we know in our hearts that he is safely home in the hands of our savior.
Services were held Saturday, Nov. 26, at the Sinai Pentecostal Church in San Marcos.
