Robert Vega

December 7, 1953 — March 8, 2023


Robert P. Vega “Beto”, 69, of Odessa TX, passed away on March 8, 2023, in Odessa.

Rosary and Visitation will be Tuesday, March 14, 2023, at Sunset Memorial Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held at 1pm Wednesday, March 15, 2023, at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church.

Robert was born on December 7, 1953, to Eusebio Ponz Vega and Cruz Prieto. On May 10, 1974, he married the love of his life Maria. For 48 years they created a beautiful life together, and were blessed with two sons Robert ”Jacob” and Ruben John. Robert was a loving husband, son, uncle, and dad but his greatest title was grandpa. He leaves nine grandchildren: Briana, A.J., JR, Rubi, Jaimon, Jaidon, Bri, Raven, and Aya to cherish his memories.

Robert was a truck driver in the oilfield industry for over thirty years. If he wasn’t working, he was making memories and capturing pictures with family members. He was a man of God devoted to church. Robert was always cracking jokes and was the number one fan when it came to his grandson’s baseball games. You would always catch him with a big smile cheering them on. He even got the nickname “baseball grandpa” from the players. Robert was always taking his grandchildren to the mall playground to play, or to the parks. He loved to watch his grandchildren succeed in everything they did. They were all his most precious reasons to live with all their many adventures.

Robert is preceded in death by his parents, five brothers and two sisters. Robert is survived by his wife Maria; sons Robert (Melissa) and Ruben; grandchildren; and two brothers.

The family of Robert Vega would like to thank all family and friends for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers at this time.
