Robert P. Jaramillo, age 66, went home to be with his Lord and savior. He left us Saturday April 8, 2023, after losing his battle with cancer. He was a son, brother, husband, uncle, and godfather. He is survived by his mother Frutosa (Trudy), sister Jeanette, sister Diane Salazar and husband Marcos, sister Katherine Cook, niece Chantelle Everage Washington and husband Chani, their children Ariah, Hezakiah, Jaida and Lola, niece Shandan Barrow and husband Mathew, nephew Devin Jaramillo, nephew Brandan Everage, step-daughter Michelle Gurule, step-son Benny Montana, God-daughters Casandra Flores, Alize Montana, Angelic Montana, Alisha Montana, numerous uncles, aunts, cousins and many friends. He was preceded in death by wife Susan, brother David and Father Tom.
Robert was a good man, an honorable son and husband, who always tried to do what was right. He was a funny and mischievous brother; a crazy kookie uncle; a fun to be with great-uncle; and a very generous and loving Godfather.
Robert enlisted in the military soon after graduating high school. Following in his father's footsteps he joined the Airforce knowing that this was the right decision for him. He lived his life to the fullest. He found joy in almost everything he did and was always there if you needed help. After leaving the Airforce he went to TVI (CNM) and became a machinist. He married shortly thereafter. He found employment at GE where he worked for twenty-five years before retiring.
Robert was a very private person when it came to his own situations. He wouldn't complain if he was feeling bad or hurting. He would just say that he would be ok or that all he needed was an aspirin or a nap. He never complained about what was missing in his life. He was always happy and thankful for what he had.
Robert enjoyed the outdoors a great deal. He loved to fish, camp and hike during the summer months. But his fun passion was playing bingo at the casino. He was a good player who won quite often. He always put his winnings to good use by helping others. (Maybe that's why he was so lucky).
A very special mention and thank you to a longtime friend and companion of Robert, Marilyn Flores. For the last year and a half Marilyn helped Robert with his treatment and battle with cancer. She was the rock that he leaned on. The family is grateful to her for her dedication and care of Robert during the last months of his life.
Everywhere he went he made friends quickly and easily. Most people were drawn to him like bees to honey. He was very wealthy when it came to the love of family and friends. He will be greatly missed.
