Robert Adrian Montoya
Born: May 29, 1968
Entered into eternal peace: May 9, 2011
Rob was a loving, kind and generous person. The most important thing to him was family and then he had a soft heart for the homeless. He’d bring them all home with him, if he could.
We lost him too soon, too young. He will be greatly missed. We loved him. He leaves me, his mother, Rosie Montoya, his father, Marshall Montoya, his sister, Marcy Badeaux, his brother, Leroy Montoya and his daughter, Evelyn whom he loved with all his heart; he also leaves many other relatives and friends. Rest in peace. ‘Death—the last sleep? No, the final awakening.’
Robbie was a very intelligent guy. It was fun to talk to him. We could discuss anything from bunny rabbits to Bible to world affairs; he kept up to everything going on in the world. Rob was very proud of his ability to draw, so much that he attended a school of graphic design and technology in Arizona where he also did tattooing. He loved to read. He loved music & played the clarinet. When he was in high school he got a scholarship to Redlands University to play with the masters for a summer. That was a mountain top experience for him.
He was an electrician, by trade but had the ability and the potential for many other things. He worked for a contractor remodeling homes, he was a plumber. He was an intake coordinator for one of UCI’s clinics, he was a bank teller and loved working in the paint center for Home Depot.
