It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Robert Herrera. Robert was born on March 1, 1944, and peacefully left this world on February 29, 2024 to join his family, brothers and all his drinking/traveling buddies. He went to Heaven to celebrate his 80th birthday and what a party that must have been.

Robert was a quiet, loving man whose presence always brought a sense of comfort and peace. His teachings included the values of patience, honesty, and integrity, often expressing, “Good things come to those who wait,” and, “I’d rather owe it to you than cheat you out of it”. These guiding principles were not only words but were reflected in his actions throughout his life.

A very proud Fox Tech High School alumni, he then received an associates degree from San Antonio College. An individual of great determination, one of Robert’s proudest accomplishments was graduating from the University of Texas at Austin in 1968. His academic success served as an inspiration not only to his family but to all who knew him.

He was preceded in death by his mom Esther Vargas Herrera, his dad Candelario Dominguez Herrera, his very much loved Tia Chana (Luciana Herrera). His brother Richard and his youngest brother Edward James (La Wrecka). Many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Robert married his soul mate, Sally Cortez Larios on November 26, 1966, they had a wonderful love affair for 57 years. Their first child, Juan Carlos was born in 1969 and in 1975 their daughter Ana Lucia was born.

Robert and Sally loved to travel with their dear friends to various locations later in life. His travels gave him a new appreciation and love for Paris and Venice.

Robert’s gentle spirit, loving heart, and wisdom will be dearly missed by all. His legacy will forever be imprinted in those he loved and impacted. May his soul rest in peace.
