I can remember when I was a young boy, I was always amazed by his drawings, he was a very talented artist, and of course, he also loved his comic books. R.I.P. uncle Bobby. I love you!

Though it has been many years since I’ve seen and spoke with my Tio Bobby, it saddens me to know that he is gone. He is in a better place, I am glad for that. I have many memories of my Tio, such a lively fun person.
You were loved, your brothers, sisters, nephews, and nieces here in California will miss you.
My condolences to your family. You all will be in my prayers.
