Robert Bencomo, 67
Hector Roberto “Bob” Bencomo, loving father, son, brother, uncle and friend, passed away on February 16, 2018 at age 67.
Robert was born October 26, 1950 in El Paso, Texas to Hector and Mary Bencomo. He graduated from Coronado High School in 1969. From there, he attended the University of Texas, El Paso and joined the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity, creating fond memories and many lifelong friendships.
Turning his passions for music and books into a career, Robert opened his own store, Book Works, in Richardson, Texas, where he was fulfilled by the conversions he had with his customers and in helping connect them with the right piece of literature or music. Friends and family knew him to also be an enthusiastic photographer, often preferring to be behind the camera instead of in front of it.
Above all, we will remember him for his great storytelling, loyal friendship and mischievous sense of humor.
Robert is survived by his son, Justin (Jenny), mother, Mary; sisters, Jackie (Bill), Linda (Bill), Nadine (Luigi) and Sandra; and brothers Jim and Richard (Rosemary). He is preceded in death by his father, Hector.
A celebration of his life will be held Saturday, April 7, 2018 at 10:30 AM at St. Patrick Cathedral. Interment to follow at Mt. Carmel Cemetery at 12:00 PM. Services directed by San Jose Funeral Home. (915) 531-1856.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the music or literature charity of your choice.
