Roberto Lozano was born in Ysleta, Texas on March 31, 1931 to Carmen O. Lozano and Silla Moralez.

Roberto grew up on a farm in Carrizozo, New Mexico, where he attended school only as far as the 7th grade.

In 1949 in San Pedro, California, Roberto met Minnie E. Marrujo, his Carrizozo sweetheart, where he proposed, and they would marry and cherish that union for the next 71 years, until his recent death on Dec.17th, 2020.

A young Roberto, bought his first home in the first housing track development of Huntington Beach California, where he raised his Children Roberto Jr., Minnie E. And Thomas. Roberto supported his family as a Diesel Mechanic. As a young man, he went on to own a Signal gas station on Beach Blvd. in Huntington Beach, California. Later, he would serve as General manager to Carmenita Ford dealership in Santa Fe Springs, California and S&J Chevrolet truck shop in Cerritos, California. Eventually, he opened his own business in road and marine diesel, out of Orange County, and Los Angeles, California. Roberto’s reputation as diesel mechanic throughout Southern California was widely known and well respected.

However, Roberto believed that his greatest accomplishment began when he became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses (JW.Org).

At that time, Roberto retired his diesel business so as to serve in his ministry where there would be a greater need in the community. Throughout his life he would willingly move wherever he felt the greater need would be.

From Orange County, Calif. where he served as an elder in the English congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Roberto and Minnie moved to Lompoc, Calif. where they made the transition into the Spanish congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. After serving in Lompoc, Ca. for a number of years, Roberto and Minnie moved to Longmont, Colorado where they continued to serve their true God. At this time, they adopted a young daughter, Araceli.

After a number of years, again, they moved. This time to St. George, Utah for an assignment in their faith.

In 2002 Roberto and Minnie returned to New Mexico. The couple would move to Roswell, NM with the purpose of caring for Minnie’s brother, Leo Marrujo, who was ill with Kidney failure. Robert belonged to the Buena Vista, Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Roswell, NM until his passing.

Roberto left behind 4 children, 10 grandchildren, and 7 great-grandchildren.

Over the years of his ministry he touched many lives, and he was loved by so many.
