Roberto G. Garay

November 7, 1956 — July 2, 2021

Robert Garay (Rob) 64, of Odessa, Tx passed away Friday July 2, 2021 surrounded by his family. He was born in Artesia, NM on November 7, 1956 to Manuel & Eva Garay. Robert worked as a carpet layer for over 35 years serving the Permian Basin. Robert loved his family. He loved being at home, at the Ranchito, where he grew up listening to Tejano music, dancing & cruising around with a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other. He cared for anybody that came around. He was a selfless man & was always open to help with what he had to give. He loved buying snacks for all his nieces & nephews and would offer to pay for your needs if he could. Most days you would catch him wearing his cowboy hat, jeans,boots & white button up shirt ready for a party. He also had a laid back side watching TV, wearing his sweatpants & sandals no matter the weather. Robert was not a religious man but had decided to give his life to Christ on February 28, 2021.

Robert Garay is preceded in death by his father Manuel Garay & his brother Baldemar (Wally)Garay.
