A much-loved husband, father, grandfather, son and brother, Roberto Carrasco, 66, of El Paso, Texas, passed away peacefully at his home November 15, 2013 with his family present. He had bravely confronted and fought cancer but eventually capitulated to the disease. He was born June 5, 1947 in Presidio, Texas, and resided in El Paso, Texas for the past 43 years. He graduated from Presidio High School in 1967 and served proudly as an Infantryman in the Vietnam War
and was later honorably discharged after a two-year stint in the U.S. Army. Mr. Carrasco was the plant manager for Regency Plastics for 26 years.
