Robert Villalba Sr., 51, passed away in his home Sunday, September 17, 2017. He was a beloved, father, son and brother.
Robert Villalba, known to his friends as “España”, was born in Watsonville, California on August 24, 1966 to Joaquin and Maria Villalba.
He spent his childhood years hanging around the family grocery store in Castroville. He enjoyed riding his motorcycles in the fields behind the grocery store. He especially loved spending time with his only son Robert Jr. whether it was racing their RC cars or just tinkering around in the garage. His son was his world.
Robert was a loving, caring, compassionate and spiritual individual. Our hearts are filled with sorrow and sadness now that he is gone.
He was preceded in death by his father Joaquin P Villalba.
He is survived by his son, Robert Villalba Jr. of Salinas, mother Maria P. Villalba, of Salamanca, Spain, brother, Joaquin Villalba Jr. (Elisa) of Salamanca, Spain, sister, Mary E. Villalba Turnbull (Tim) of Castroville, his lifelong partner, Rebecca Verdin of Salinas and his nieces Corrie Turnbull, Victoria Turnbull of Arizona and Victoria Dorado Verdin of Salinas.
We also would like to give thanks to the Verdin family for being a big part of his life.
