Roy P. Mendibles, 68, Barstow, CA, passed away on Mar. 1, 2018. He lost his courageous battle with numerous illnesses including congestive heart failure and cancer. Roy was born in Yuma, AZ on Apr. 3, 1949. He graduated from Dos Palos High School in 1967. He was proud to have served his country and was a U. S. Air Force veteran/1968 to 1972.

Roy married Evie Mendibles (Moya) on Aug. 10, 1985; they were married 33 years.

Roy worked as a Resource Mgmt. Branch Supervisor at Ft. Irwin National Training Center for 27+ yrs and retired in 2009. He enjoyed watching TV (especially sports/golf), taking long drives to wherever while listening to the blues, and spending time with his family and friends. BUT his favorite thing was buying lottery scratchers. Roy was very generous and enjoyed helping people in need, especially the homeless population.

Roy is survived by his 6 children, Roy P. Mendibles (Joanne), Jr., Juan R. Mendibles (Tina), Angela E. Mendibles (Johnny), Marcos E. Mendibles (Debra), Michael P. Mendibles (Samantha) and Mattie F.

Roy is preceded in death by his parents, Rafael L. and Maria C. Mendibles.

Roy’s family wishes to thank Dr. Siva and his staff, Joanna, Julia, Melissa, Gina, and Dan, who cared for Roy for many years.

Many men like Roy who make up our lives (father, brother, grandfather, and son) but the one that we call husband is the one in which we attach our heart and live as one with the solemn oath that until death we part.

Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Mendibles family.

Evelyn, I don't even know where to start. We miss Roy so very much. Out hearts our broken but with mom, all of your sisters, sister in laws, brother in laws, aunt's, uncle's, niece's, nephew's, extended family and friends we will heal our broken hearts together. God blessed us all these year's with Roy. I will miss the way he danced when I cooked for him or any time he was excited about food, his laughter, his strong faith and love for his family. I know he is at peace and without sickness. He fought the hard fight and stayed with us longer than Dr's gave him. Mom held him dear all these years and now gives him back into the arms of his mom and family. I know daddy was there to greet him. We will always be there for you guys. Roy we love and miss you. Until we meet again, it's not goodbye it's see you later. Love Mom, Francie and Allie

I will never forget my time working with Roy at Fort Irwin. My first job in the Resource Management world was in building 500 working along side Roy. He was a great teacher, not only with resource management stuff, but of life-stuff in general. I learned so much from him and will be forever grateful. He help in my career more than he will ever know.

Lisa and I send our condolences and pray that you are filled with peace and all the happy memories. We Love you guys.
