Roberto Jimenez Caseres
04/20/1959 - 11/22/2023
Roberto Jimenez Caseres was born on April 20, 1959, in Puerto Rico to Benedicta Caseres Garcia and Ramon Jimenez Rios. He was one of six children. Roberto moved to New York at a young age from Puerto Rico with his mother and 4 siblings. Roberto, after living in New York for and having two daughters, Tywana (TJ) Jimenez and Miriam Jimenez, he moved to Tracy California in 1991. This is where Robert lived for the last 33 yrs.
Robert worked for Tracy School District as a janitor & maintenance employee for approximately 10-12 yrs. After leaving that job, Roberto became the Jack of all Trades. Roberto was the neighborhood handyman. Roberto would help everyone he could that needed a helping hand, this is where he got the nickname (“BIG ROB”) He worked as a painter, auto detailer, landscaper, and construction just to name a few. Not to Mention he also used to go when I had DJ gigs, he was a lot of help when carrying heavy equipment, setting up light’s speakers taking request from guest etc.…
He loved to eat, he liked BBQs, “What on the Menu was his favorite line” Ribs Chicken and all the sides. He would make himself a plate to die for. Can’t forget he was a true San Francisco faithful 49er fan.
He was always up early waiting for who was going to call for work. He made a lot of friends in Tracy. He helped at a local stereo shop with cleaning and helping around with what was needed. Roberto was always busy, never a dull moment he was not doing something, I lived next door for couple yrs. He was always overseeing the property, maintenance, cleaning the yard etc. Roberto had the neighbors respect, some neighbors would go on vacation and leave Roberto in charge overseeing their home’s while they were gone, they handed him the keys with trust that he would watch their homes. Roberto would be the guy that would bring everyone’s trash bins in after the city came to dump them. He was always detailing cars, boats, motorcycles and and even RV’s at the house. People would come to drop off their vehicles and pickup late afternoon or evening. Almost like an auto daycare (lol). Roberto was a very handy person if he didn’t know he would figure it out. There is so much to write about Roberto, but I would be here for days, explaining Roberto daily activities.
Once Roberto became ill, He decided to go visit his daughters and family in NY where he passed away peacefully Surrounded by family. Roberto is proceeded in death by his parents Benedicta Caseres Garcia (Mother) Ramon Jimenez Rios (Father) Daisy Jimenez Caseres (Sister).
He is Survived by his siblings Alicia Jimenez-Tabora (Sister) Milagro Jimenez (Sister) Ramon Jimenez (Brother) and Miguel Dejesus (Brother) He also Survived by His Daughters Tywana (TJ) Jimenez and Miriam Jimenez and lots of Grandchildren Nieces and Nephews,
Roberto will have a graveside service February 22, 2024, at the
