Robert Ponce (aka Bobby) passed away July 27, 2020 at Regency House in San Angelo, Texas.
Bobby was born June 6th, 1941 to Esther and Cleto Ponce. He was a longtime resident of San Angelo, where he was born and raised. As he grew into a young man, he took the occupation as a Carpet layer alongside his longtime friend Gilbert Soto Sr. Bobby was well known for his hard work ethic and was a good friend to many. He had a love for music and dancing, western movies, and loved to eat sweets. His all-time favorite was Oreo cookies, chocolate cake or ice cream and he would usually skip out on a meal and go straight to his dessert.
Although Bobby was born with disabilities, he continued to persevere despite the challenges he faced. The inability to verbally speak and hear, caused much adversity in Bobby’s life. However, this did not stop him from loving his family. Anyone that would visit him could see the pictures along the wall, of his children, grandchildren, family, and friends. There is a saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” and to Bobby, it really was that and more. Because of his inability to express himself the way most of us can, Bobby was a visual and a very observant person. What may have been ordinary to the average person was not ordinary to Bobby. He noticed the birds, the moon, and the smallest details in life. Bobby was gifted in more ways than he may have ever thought. And his faith in God, his Creator was evident in the way that he lived. He made an impact on those around him and although he will be greatly missed, we have peace that he is in a better place where there is no more suffering.
Bobby is preceded in death by his parents, his oldest son Robert Ponce Jr. (Bobby Jr.), wife Rosa Ponce, sister Lydia Ponce Gloria, and brother Alfredo Ponce, all of San Angelo, TX. And is survived by his two sons Orlando M. Ponce and Alfredo (Freddie) Hernandez Ponce both of San Angelo, TX; his daughter Amy Ponce Khoury of Newport News, VA; brother Daniel Ponce of Louisville, TX; numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
The family of Robert Ponce would like to thank nurses and staff at Regency House for their special care of Bobby, where he spent the last year and half of his life. A special thanks to nurse Miriam Jones, Dr. Peter Chang, Holly Johnson as well as the many other CNA’s and staff that cared for him. Also, would like to thank Interim Hospice Care and Shaffer Funeral Home for their service and support.
Monetary donations for funeral expenses can be made at Shaffer Funeral Home by phone or in person.
Memorial Service for Bobby Ponce will be held at House of Jireh Ministries at 1414 N. Chadbourne on Friday- July 31st at 10 a.m. with Bobby’s son- Pastor Orlando Ponce officiating; Face masks will be required.
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-9
