I will not forget you. My precious child, my first born.
I will always cherish memories; the love we shared, your smile, your laugh
and YOU will be remembered each day. You were a special person who touched my life and will live within my heart forever.

Bobby Lee came in to the world early only weighing 4.9 pounds but grew up to be a very loving young man. The love of his life was his son, Brandon Lee Casarez, 4 years old. Brandon will be cherished and will learn about his father through his family. His laugh was loud and contagious. To say he had a huge heart would be an understatement. He would literally give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Throughout his whole life he always had a huge smile on his face. Bob never left a room of family without saying “I love you” before leaving. Bobby Lee was a concrete finisher and worked very hard. Bobby made sure any work he did was always the best that he could put out.
