Roberto Cantu Perez

Roberto Cantu Perez, 66, of Tyrone, OK passed away on Thursday April 25, 2024 at BSA Hospital in Amarillo, TX.  
He was born on June 6, 1957 to Ruben Cantu Castillo and Eufemia Perez Pena at Piedras Negras, Coahuila Mexico.

On January 28, 1976 he married Minerva "Minnie" Hernandez Munoz at Coahuila, Mexico.

Roberto worked as a Truck driver for 24 years until his retirement in 2022.  His coworkers would call him "Maestro" as he was always guiding and teaching. Roberto loved Texas; where he spent many of his younger years living and farming. Many of his fondest memories were raising chickens and cattle; he always wanted to move back. He enjoyed watching western movies, singing & dancing, working on his cars, attending Texas Rodeos and was a big fan of Lane Frost. Roberto was a bit of a ornery prankster, always making his friends & family laugh. Most of all, he loved helping people and being with his family.
