Roberto Moran, known to many as Bobby, was a simple man that truly enjoyed “carne asada” gatherings. You would always find Bobby sitting by the barbeque pit, beer in hand, as he happily watched his family and friends enjoy a good barbeque. If he was not grilling, he would be in his workroom turning a junked item into a beautiful piece of furniture. You can bet that each family member has at least one or more items in their home that Bobby built or welded for them. In the last days of his life, he was still working on a table for his grandson. Roberto “Bobby” Moran, was called by Our Lord on Monday, March 16, 2020, at the age of 82. He was the son of the late Aurelio Moran Jr. and Teodora Moran. He was born and raised in Laredo, Texas, attended Bruni Elementary School, Christen Middle School, and was a 1955 graduate from Martin High School where he played four years of football for the Mighty Tigers. He bravely served in the United States Army after graduation. After serving his time in the Army, Bobby returned home and continued his father’s business as co-owner of Moran Fine Meats with his brother Alfredo for 38 years. Bobby was a well-respected business man who had many loyal customers that would turn to him for advice on the best cuts of meat recommended. After his retirement in 2005, he enjoyed picking up his grandchildren from school and spending time with them. Bobby’s motto was, “Ay que darle pa delante”, and he did just that when faced with life’s ups and downs. Bobby lived his life to the fullest with his wife of fifty-three years, Angelica Sanchez Moran. Bobby set his eyes on Angelica and told his friends, “Con ella me voy a casar.” They both fell in love and were married in 1967 and had three beautiful children together. Bobby was a great provider, a good husband and a wonderful father. He was a parishioner at San Luis Rey Church where he helped every year at the annual Jamaica. He is preceded in death by his parents Aurelio Moran Jr. and Teodora Moran; siblings Socorro M. Villarrreal (Margarito+), Alfredo Aurelio Moran (Judith+), and Duvina Azios (Robert+).
