Robert Colunga Vasquez left this earth to meet his wife, Mary Frances, in heaven on Friday, August 7, 2020. He leaves behind a family who adores him. Robert spent his career as a produce manager for HEB. He retired from the grocer in 2008 with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Service.
Robert and Mary married in 1959 and had their first child, Leticia. Soon to follow were Robert Jr. and David. Their lives took them from the northwest region of the country in Washington State to Dallas then to Harlingen where they eventually settled. They had their second daughter, Jennifer, in 1976. Robert was a devout Catholic and leaned on his faith to get him through the tough times. His legacy for his children is his commitment to a strong work ethic and a lifelong commitment to love.

His surviving children are: David (Lisa) Vasquez, Robert Vasquez, Jr. and Jennifer (Shawn) Colten.
