It is with saddened hearts that the family of Robert Jaramillo Sr. of Socorro announce the passing of their utmost beloved Husband, Father, Tata (Grandfather), and friend to so many at the age of 60 years on November 6, 2019.
Robert was adored by his grandchildren whom he followed and supported until the day he passed. Robert was a proud father and always encouraged his family to pursue their education and work hard. He was accustomed to hard work; from a young age he began working on his family’s farm and would ride his motorcycle every chance he could.
Robert started his business, Jaramillo’s Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning, Inc. in 1984. He worked tirelessly to become a successful business owner in Socorro and surrounding areas.
Robert was actively involved in the community. He was currently serving as President for the Board of Directors for the Polvadera Mutual Domestic Water Consumer Association and was on the Planning and Zoning Committee for the City of Socorro. He had also served on the CNM Advisory Committee, Midway Fire Department, and Socorro Soil and Water Conservation District.
When he wasn’t working you could often find him in his backyard taking care of his garden and tending to the flowers he planted for his wife, Pauline. He loved to travel and be outdoors. He also enjoyed skiing, hunting, fishing, camping, and dancing. Robert had many great adventures with his family and friends.
Robert will be joining his predeceased father, Filemon Jaramillo; mother-in-law and father-in-law Valentine and O’Tillie Padilla.
He is survived by his loving wife of 41 years, Pauline; two children, his daughter Amanda Crespin (husband, Qualyn) and their children, Tyler, Alexandria, and Ariana Crespin; his son Robert Jaramillo Jr. (wife, Rosa) and their children, Robert III, Andres, and Liliana Jaramillo; and his boxer named Foxy, who was always by his side. He also leaves behind his mother, Agnes Jaramillo, five brothers, three sisters, as well as a large extended family and many great friends. Robert will remain forever in our broken hearts and will be greatly missed by his loving family and those whose lives he touched.
