Robert Leos Munoz (Bobby) January 26, 1933 - March 5, 2013 Born in Bakersfield, California, January 26, 1933, Bobby passed away on March 5, 2013, 11:30 p.m., at the age of 80 in Sacramento, California where he had been living for the past 35 years. Bobby attended Garces High School. He joined the United States Air Force in 1951, assigned to Special Services managing NCO, Airmen and Officers Clubs. He was stationed at Langley AFB-Virginia, Merignac AFB-France, Leon AFB-France, Goose Bay-Labrador, Chateauroux Air Base, France, McClellan AFB-Sacramento-CA, Bien Hoa-Vietnam, Vance AFB-Oklahoma, Nakhum Phanum-Thailand, Travis AFB-CA, Zaragoza AFB-Spain, and Beale AFB-CA. While serving 26 years in the service, Bobby received several Air Force Commendation medals, along with numerous Letters of Commendation and awards. After retiring from the Air Force in 1977, Bobby began working as Assistant General Manager, McClellan Base Restaurants. Bobby and his longtime friend Gene Hunter, General Manager, brought the highest level of commitment and dedication to McClellan base restaurants. After retiring from McClellan Base Restaurants, and never one to sit still for long, Bobby took another position as a Parts Delivery Driver for Napa Auto, continuing to work for another 10 years, until August of 2010. He loved being around cars and hobbied in restoring them. Bobby was genuinely kind, humble and generous; deeply religious and committed to his Catholic faith until the last day of his life: a gentleman in the way of a past era. He touched many people's lives and never walked passed anyone who needed help. Bobby never forgot his roots, returning to Bakersfield regularly to visit his brothers, sisters and family he loved so very much. Bobby was a boxing enthusiast, coming from a long line of brothers who also were boxers, trainers, and matchmakers. Bobby boxed as an amateur and once held the Santa Maria Valley Featherweight Novice Championship, 1950. Bobby is survived by his wife of 58 years, Adelita, his children Vicki, Yvette and Mark and his daughter-in law, Nena, Son-in-law, Gary. Grandchildren Annique, Monique and Evita-and six grandchildren. Bobby also leaves behind his loving sister, Alice Pereirra and brothers, Paul and Joe Munoz. Blessed to have come from a large and close family, he was preceded in death by his sisters Margaret, Esther, Carmen, Angelina, and his brothers Lupe, Sammy, Rudy, Steven (fuzzy) and Salvadore (Quate) and his twin. His long list of cherished and loved friends and family are too numerous to mention. Memorial gifts may be made to the Lou Gehrig's Disease Foundation. Friends and family are invited to attend memorial services at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, 601 East California Avenue, Bakersfield, CA. 93307, Friday, April 5, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. What we do for ourselves dies with us, what we do for others remains immortal. -Albert Pine "God Bless You.
