Roberto “Robert” Francisco Rodriguez was born on May 20,1976 in the small south Texas town of Carrizo Springs. Through the years he took on many nicknames such as Pancho, Panchis, Panchito, Panch, Robe, Pancherelli, Otooley Oreilly Oshay and Dupe. He was constantly teased for being a momma’s boy, auntie’s boy, uncle’s boy, grandma’s boy and everyone’s boy. He was the family favorite for hugs and the best person to go to for a shoulder to lean on. Robert was raised in Crystal City, Texas from birth to the age of fifteen. In 1989 his family relocated to Ferris, Texas where he spent the rest of his life. Robert spent 27 years in the custom cabinet industry. His passion for woodworking started in 1990 when he joined K-Construction working in their cabinet shop as a helper. In 1994 he joined Gatlin Cabinets where he dedicated himself to helping transform a small cabinet company into what ultimately became Sunrise Wood Designs where he rose to the position of Executive Vice President of Operations. He loved serving his work family and he was proud to represent SWD. Robert lived life to the fullest and had many passions ranging from riding his Harley Davidson with his friends to traveling. Family was at the center of everything that he did. Robert loved his nieces and nephews like they were his own children. His love grew to new levels the day his daughter was born. Robert’s new boss became princess Lola. They enjoyed playing with Barbies, working outside and spending time painting Daddy’s toe nails.
