Robert "Bobby" John Tamayo

It is with great sadness that the family of Robert “Bobby” John Tamayo announces his sudden passing at the age of 66 years, at his home in Havasu Lake, California, surrounded by his loved ones – his wife, Frieda, and grandson, Mario.

The youngest son of John and Dolores Tamayo, Bobby was raised in Knightsen, where he attended Knightsen Elementary School until 1966 and graduated in 1970 from Liberty Union High School in Brentwood.

Bobby was an amazing, good man, and we will miss his joyful laugh. His greatest passion was his family, especially family reunions. Bobby enjoyed going to the casinos and caring for his beautiful registered show horses on his ranch.

Bobby will forever be remembered by his grand loving family; his wife, Frieda; his daughter, Rachel; stepson, Joseph; stepdaughter, Amanda; six grandsons; five granddaughters; one great-grandson; his sisters, Carmen (Buddy) Serna, Jenny Ochoa, Margaret (Bare) Cadway, Cecilia (Emilio) Canzani; his brother, Paul (Mary) Tamayo; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Welcoming Bobby in heaven are his parents, John and Dolores Tamayo; his sisters, Dolores Nino and Maryhelen Elizarraraz; his brothers, Ray, Ruben, Fred and Richard Tamayo; and his stepdaughter, Carrie Martinez.

Bobby was cremated in Havasu Lake.
