Robert Paul Rael (27) graduated into Heaven in Puerto Penasco, Sonora Mexico on January 2, 2018. Robert was born on March 10, 1990 in Phoenix Arizona.

Robert was raised in Albuquerque New Mexico until the age of 14, then moved to Arizona where he resided for the rest of his life.
Growing up he enjoyed going to the cabin in Mora, New Mexico where he would fish with his grandpa, play in the stream and hike in the woods.
Robert was so full of life always joking, loved to hug and be hugged. His expression of love towards his mom, dad, grandma(s) and grandpa, as well as those he loved was sincere. He was one the most generous and caring individuals one could ever know. Robert loved every kind of toy from bicycles, dirt bikes and electronic technology, no matter how complicated it was. " Junior" as he was often referred to was a prankster and loved to laugh at the recipient's reaction. He loved to cook, try new recipes and sometimes invented his own.
Robert Jr. had a passion for reading a variety of authors but never excluded his bible. If you were to open his bible, you would see the highlighted passages he loved and that inspired his life. Junior loved camping, fishing, hiking, riding his bicycle and motorbike.
At the age of 15 years old, Junior met his biological father and family, Robert A. Rangel. It was an instant connection for the family in Phoenix Arizona. Junior quickly connected with his new family and loved hanging out with his pops. They frequently visited Rocky Point together and hung out on the weekends.
Once Junior met his brother Vincent Vasquez, they both enjoyed spending time together and did what most brothers did; they lived life with adventure and went sky diving and bungee jumping together! Brenda and Rebecca were his little sisters and as you can imagine, Junior enjoyed hanging out with them and making them laugh.
Robert Jr. worked at Pilkington in Phoenix Arizona, where he established another family and multitude of friends. He continued his love for life and brought his laughter and joy to those he worked with.
Junior will forever remain in all our hearts and will always be missed by those who knew and loved him. The void he leaves in our heart will be filled by the wonderful memories he leaves behind.
