, my father Robert Herrera
went out on a Motorcycle ride with our family. My dad loved riding bikes, and being around everyone. On his way home, he misjudged a sharp turn and went off the road. He wasn't speeding or driving reckless
. He was on an unfamiliar bike, and he misjudged his skills. He died doing what he loved, surrounded by the people that loved him, and he loved. For that I am thankful. His death was more than unexpected,
and we are still trying to come to terms with the reality that he isn't around anymore.
He was a stubborn, hard headed son of a gun. But he had a heart of gold.
When I joined the Army, there was no one else that supported me the way he did. He drove and flew countless times to me in different states to make sure I was taken care of. He was my rock, my voice of sound reason, and sometimes chaos
. He drove me insane and pissed me off more times than I can count. But, that was my dad. The hardest working, strongest, meanest, kindest man on this planet. I loved him more than anyone could love there dad. There is a giant void that is left with him being gone.My dad helped anyone and everyone, regardless of who you were or what you had done to him.
He was the families and his friends go to with anything, he was always there day or night. There isn't a single person that will read this that doesn't have a story or memory of my father. His laugh was contagious, and he laughed at everything. The earth is dimmer without him
My dad left his wife Hope Herrera, myself and 4 kids behind and 7 grandchildren.
With his death being so sudden, there are many financial needs that need taken care of. He had no life insurance
, and wanted to be buried.
If possible, I would like nothing more than to honor his last wish
He also left some bills behind that will burden my mother if not taken care of.
I come to whoever is reading this, as humbly as possible
. I realize this is not your burden to bare. The smallest amount will help.
I am expecting to have his funeral by 28 September 2018.
I will be the sole person in charge of his final expenses at this point. If you can find it in your heart to donate, without burdening yourself, I truly appreciate it, and he would have to. If you can not donate, I just ask that you please share this to as many people as possible.
