WATERS, ROBERT PATRICK Our beloved brother Robert, crossed over to the ever after October 13, 2014, taking with him a piece of our hearts. The bright eyed robust laughter, mischievous grin and unconditional love shall grace our days always. Robert's innocent acceptance, genuine care and concern for all will soothe the still night and warm the quiet morning. We are fortunate to have been favored to share in his journey, rewarded in our hearts for each moment he loved us. Robert was at once himself in the rhythm of rock and roll, alongside the roar of a Harley, captive within a howl for the Lobos and resolute in his admiration for Action Heroes. A sweet man with a sweeter tooth, savoring each satisfaction. A connoisseur of candy and a Sultan of soda. Robert was adored of children, the kindest and most gentle of souls. Pure of heart, uncomplicated and nonthreatening, an ease of honesty toward all. Brother dear brother, we lift our eyes to still see you. Brother dear brother, in our hearts we still feel you. All are welcome to join in an Interment gathering and Remembrance Wednesday, October 22, 2014 at 10:00 am at the Lady of Guadalupe patio within Mt. Calvary Cemetery, 1900 Edith Blvd NE. In lieu of flowers please donate in Robert's name to the UNM Cancer Center.
