He enlisted as an El Centro Police Reserve. He then became a Correctional Officer at the age of 21 and worked at Centinela State Prison, until 2006 when he enlisted with United States Border Patrol.
Robert was a devoted father and loving husband. He loved coaching and playing baseball, spending quality time with his family and friends as well as working to ensure the safety of our country as a Border Patrol Agent. Robert touched the lives of many people with his smile, enthusiasm and his positive attitude. Robert will continue to radiate his love and strength even after his passing. He will never be forgotten for his courage and dignity.
