25 years ago I met Robert and Janie Granados and we became very good friends. My best memory is when we took all our kids to Mission to spend the weekend. He introduced me to his family, that’s when I realized he would be a friend for a long time, regardless of where life took us. That trip to Mission was the first one of many trips. I’m going to miss him a lot. His famous words to me were “don’t worry “.

We met Mr. and Mrs. Granados in 2017 and instantly had MANY things in common, such as our kids. We shared stories of our boys and he would share stories of his and the laughs were endless.
Today's service was beautiful. It was amazing how your dad touched so many lives. He was a man that many wish to be and only very very few have the natural gift of touching the lives of everyone they come into contact with. Be it with a smile, uplifting words, a bed to sleep on, a meal, warm clothing, a truck to make a trip to deliver donations, or opening his wallet to a person he knew needed it more than he did. He always did it with the purest of intentions. He left a family (and his robotics family) to carry on his legacy of helping others. Again, it was an HONOR to have met such an amazing man! We will miss you Big Money. -Luna Family

It was an honor to know Mr. Granados Sr., best known as Big Money. He and Mrs. Granados opened their home to us the summer of 2017 and he made us feel as if he had known us for years. He made us feel like part of the family. He was very proud of his sons and the biggest fan for the Robo-Rangers. I admired his will to live and his drive to give a helping hand to whomever was in need. He will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace 🕊

I miss you already, my dear friend. I am forever grateful to you for helping me when I started my business. You vouched for me and got me the best deals; Morris & Dickson was lucky to have you. I wish I had told you that you were like an older brother to me, I wish I had told you how much I needed your advice. I wish I had told you how much I admired the love and admiration you had for Janie, the greatest love of your life. I wish I had told you that your children were so very blessed to have a father like you. You were a man of integrity, filled with goodness. And so I am reminded of the words of Job: “...naked i came forth from my mother’s womb, and naked I shall return. The Lord has given, and the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.”

I had the honor to meet you, though it was for a very short period of time, it was enough to appreciate the sweet soul that you were. You were always there going above and beyond to support your children and our team. I remember on the day of the parade how I kept telling you that I felt bad because I was the only one on the truck while everyone else was walking, you kept telling me not to worry about it, so I felt less bad about it. I thank God for allowing me with the opportunity to share that ride with you, I will forever treasure that day. You will always live in our hearts and your memory will carry on through the beautiful family that you created. You will be dearly missed. Thank you for everything that you did. Rest In Peace.
