You were the best neighbor that I've ever had. You were the first one to introduce yourself and were always there if I ever needed anything. We remained friends even after we both moved away. I'm sad that you're gone, but I know that you and your brother are united again. Thank you for your military service, and you will truly be missed.
Your friend,

Your joking and funny ways will never be forgotten. It was good to see you at church ALFC. God is good and he needed an angel to fill the heavens with laughter 💖
You and your family were always kind to our family. We were Blessed to have crossed our roads back
on Hammett street, especially to my brother Rudy who will dearly miss you along with everyone else.
RIP and make some noise JR! Luv Chavez Family

My deepest condolences to you and your family. May God give you strength, bring your comfort, and courage on these difficult days ahead. Great men souls never ever part. They leave an impression on anyone they come across. Kenneth, I see that same great soul in you and though I didn’t meet your father, he has left a permanent imprint of wisdom on you. May the lessons he has taught you last a lifetime and may you find healing in the days ahead. God Bless and please know that you are in our prayers.

Ese mi Jr., I have so many good memories growing up in the old neighborhood with you. I remember you getting the first minibike on the block, you looked so bad on it. I went home and prayed for one, being we were altar boys, I pleaded my dad for one, actually cried for one, with the help of my brother Art I got one. I remember you and I just tearing the neighborhood apart popping wheelies causing all kinds of problems. Good times.
Remembering playing baseball in our Sandlot Field, the old Findley Street. I always hated to bat while you were on the mound, I don’t think hated is the word it’s more of being afraid, afraid of what? Afraid of getting hit, you had a side arm that would scare every kid on the block, you were a hell of a pitcher brother.

Playing kick the can late at night with all neighborhood kids while the Sun Kings were playing in the Dudley Dome. Like I said my friend, those were memories I will never forget and want to thank you for those memories.
So many memories, just like in the movie Sandlot, we had a neighborhood swimming pool, we used to wrap our swimming trunks inside our towel like a burrito, Jr, Rudy, Ralph, Joe my brother and myself, we would go swimming at Washington park. Jr. was always the first one to go to the ten-foot diving board and dive, we all would laugh and have a great time. When it came time to leave, at times, we would walk to Chico’s Tacos and order, I remember Jr. would always make Rudy pay for him, it was so funny how Rudy would complain but he would always pay for Jr. If that wasn’t a beginning of good friends, I don’t know what is.
Robert, thank you for all the great memories you gave me and all our neighborhood friends. I LOVE YOU ROBERT.
In behalf of myself Fred and my daughters Ana and Monica Rodriguez, want to pay our deepest sympathy to Kenny, April and the Caldera Family

Jr. visited my wife Linda and me back around 1976, 77, when we were newly weds. He came to our San Diego apartment and we shared lunch in the courtyard. The conversation turned to religion and Jr. accepted Jesus as his Savior. Like me, he was not perfect but I know had faith in God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The confidence we have as believers is that heaven is our eternal home. Jr, buddy, rest in peace with the Lord.

Kenny, April and Elvia, our deepest sympathy for your loss. We were very saddened to hear that Robert passed away. He was a lifelong friend.
What do you call a person you've known throughout most of your life. A person in your neighborhood who you interacted with, shared with.
A person you spent summers playing sandlot baseball in a makeshift field. Junior was a pitcher who had the most feared sidearm pitch. His release looked like the ball was coming at you from third base. Every 10 year old at the plate feared getting hit by his whipping fast ball. Many wonderful heartfelt memories.
I call Robert, Junior, my brother!
Lola and I, along with the Rodriguez family, will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. We will miss him.
Joe and Lola Rodriguez,

Will always remember you as uncle Jr. I have so many wonderful memories of the cool funny uncle your are and how you made me feel cool by picking me up from school in your old corvette. You were a bright light in our lives and you will be missed. From the Caldera’s here in San Antonio to the rest of our family in El Paso and elsewhere we share our grief with you and wish you the very best.

Rest In Peace. I’m so happy that I got a chance to see him and speak to him before I moved to Houston, we got to share a great moment and as always he gave some great advise. I have nothing but great memories and memorable conversations with him. Kenny and April may you find comfort and peace knowing he’s in a better place. Love you
