ODESSA Robert Hernandez, age 71, of Odessa, passed away on June 17, 2014, at his residence in Odessa, TX.
We are giving you back your angel. He may be a little broken, a little scratched up, scarred up and walks with a limp. He is the one with the big heart. He has fought a good battle. He was a great husband, father, grandfather and provider. He taught us what it took to be men and women in this world, to walk with your head held high and to respect others. God, your angel awaits your call. Please be gentle with him.
