Robert “Bobby” Buenaventura was born in Makati, Philippines on July 20, 1971. He moved to San Diego, CA in 1979, where he would reside for the remainder of his life. Bobby was unexpectedly called home to the Lord on the early morning of June 18, 2020; he was 48 years old at this time.

Coming from humble beginnings, Bobby was able to help establish and maintain a thriving automotive/window film installation business in 1993 with his business partner and best friend, Edgar Avendano. In 2008, he followed his dreams of gaining employment with the City of San Diego. Furthering his education, he obtained an Associates degree and numerous Technical Certifications, which allowed him to be promoted to a Supervisor in the Radio Vehicle Installation group. His final position with the City of San Diego was that of, Supervisor of fixed equipment that maintains all city radio towers and dispatch center infrastructure.

Bobby’s biggest accomplishment, however, could be seen in his love and dedication to his wife, family and friends. He took pride in teaching and guiding his children. In addition to spending time with family, Bobby was an avid car and gun enthusiast. Bobby is survived by his wife, Diane, and his children: RJ, Alex, Avangelyne, Luciano and Renae, as well as his mother, Mila and his brothers, sisters and extended family.

Robert (Bobby) was along time friend of mine for over 30 years. I was honored when Bobby had asked me to be a “god father “ of his 1st born RJ. Ever since we’ve close friends more like brothers. I am heartbroken and sadden that his life was taken so soon. I’m one that never forgot to remember n call him on his birthday July 20th. I’m really going to miss my brother

This was the last time we saw one another and I know you were soooo proud that moment to witness our son graduate High School! I will make sure he continues to make you proud! Thank you for the memories Bobby from the my teen years, marriage, the birth of our child, and everything else in between.

I know that I will never have the right words to make the pain go away for the ones left behind BUT I can say "Thank You" for the times we agreed to disagree. We did it we have a High School Graduate who's about to start college soon. I know you will continue to watch over him! Rest in Aloha!

The best way I can say good bye is by thanking you for your friendship and advice. Life has its ups and downs but your laughter never wavered. It’s hard to think I will not see or hear your laughter or receive advice from you. I feel the weight on my shoulders. The need to honor your example: Happy, patient, devoted, family centered, hardworking among many many more qualities. With a smile and tears in my eyes I say to you Bobby….
Thank you!

I remember when Diane started dating Bobby and how happy she became in life. He truly was her sole mate. Bobby was such a great friend to everybody and to those he met through Diane from her job. He became a friend to all of us and wasn't just "Diane's husband". I remember when I had to clean out my mothers house and Bobby, Diane and a friend came and helped me without even being asked. I know Bobby was a great husband, father and friend. Bobby you are truly missed and will continue to be missed. Memories will be forever in my heart. Love and Condolences to everybody that loves Bobby,.

My Dearest Bobby,

Where do I even begin? My heart is broken. We have shared so many memorable times together as young teenagers into adulthood. I will miss you with all my heart brother. We lost touch through the many years. As if life is forever and that one day we will be able to say hi again and talk and reminisce about our days together. Life is full of surprises, with many ups and many downs. Knowing that you will no longer be with us is a great loss.

We grew up during a time of no cell phones, text messages or emails. We built true relationships by being with each other every single day, talking, joking, laughing, and of course partying. We supported one another with our words and our actions.

Before we were old enough to drive. We walked everywhere, and I mean everywhere. From all of Eastside to Southside. We were young and crazy but I can truly say it was the best time of my life. If I could go back into time I would go back to the times we were together with all our homies. We were the best group of guys just living it up.

I remember in junior high you would always wear your jean jacket and that was "Bobby". And then I got a jean jacket and I ended up wearing it every day as you did and that was our style. So so many memories to share. Memories to share for days on end.

I pray for your family. I pray for your beautiful wife and beautiful children. I pray that they are able to find comfort and peace from our Father. Your mom was the most kind and genuine aunty. You were so blessed to have her and we were so blessed to be in her presence.

I love you Bobby. I love you brother. I will miss you. But I will not say goodbye because I know that we will see each other one day again. And when we do see each other again we will hug, laugh, and cry together.

Your brother forever,

Luan Nguyen
