Robert Henry Cruz

Robert Henry Cruz passed away peacefully in his sleep on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2018 in San Marcos, Texas at the age of 64. He was born on Aug. 3, 1953 in Fentress, Texas to Henry and Gloria (Jaramillo) Cruz.

Robert was preceded in death by his mother, Gloria, and brother-in-law, Demecio (Dei) Castilleja. He is survived by father, Henry S. Cruz, brother, Roland J. Cruz, and sister, Yvonne Castilleja and nephews, Demecio Jason (DJ) Castilleja and his wife (Amanda Ross), Gregory Castilleja, great nephew, ZZ Ross Castilleja and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Robert graduated from San Marcos High School in 1972 and then joined the U.S. Navy where he proudly served until he was honorably discharged due to an accident he had while on ship. He worked for Art Carved where he specialized in graduation rings, then he went to work as an officer of corrections in Kyle. He retired in 2017. He lived a quiet life, and never wanted to be a burden on anyone. He returned to San Marcos just a few short months ago where he came to live in his childhood home for the last two months of his life. He was welcomed with loving arms, and a safe haven until his death.

Robert will be remembered fondly and missed by his close family and friends who loved him. Rest in Peace, little brother, until we meet again, “Go With God.”

Memorial Service will be held at 10 a.m.  on Thursday, March 1, 2018 at Legends Funeral Home 107 Centerpoint Road, San Marcos, Texas 78666.
