The family of Mr. Robert Flores, Sr., a US Navy Veteran, requests the presence and participation of the San Antonio Patriot Guard Riders at the LEO supported procession, and graveside rendering of military honors of their loved one. We are honored to accept this invitation.

Robert was born on March 7, 1949. He peacefully passed away into Glory on June 30, 2021, after a long health battle.

In 1968 Robert joined the United States Navy, serving a total of 8 years. He worked for the Department of Defense for 37 years. During this time, he attended Logos Bible College and held a Bachelor of Biblical Studies. He also attended National Christian University with a certificate in counseling for chemical dependency. If there was ever a life to be celebrated, it was his. Robert was a man of great faith, tenacity and fortitude.  He leaves behind a legacy of perseverance, courage and selfless sacrifice. Robert remained a steadfast servant of the Lord who joyfully shared the Gospel wherever life took him. He was often found praying with others, leading them to Christ, or beseeching God for their healing all while he was waiting for his own. Despite his countless trials, and declining health, Robert fought the good fight of faith and finished strong.

Robert is survived by his wife of 30 years, Kathleen Sheehy Flores, his children, Robert Flores, Jr., Erica M. Arcos, Mary Colleen Uranga, Timothy G. Thrasher, and 9 grandchildren. One grandchild preceded him, Ethan Wayne Thrasher.
