Robert was born in Springer, NM and after a lifetime of wandering the world with the United States Air Force, settled back in his hometown of Springer. Robert's travels took him to England, Thailand, Korea, Turkey, Vietnam, California, Texas, Massachusetts, Arizona, and Maine. In England he met his wife and their son was born, Jose Roberto Abeyta, Jr. When Robert retired from the Air Force, he tried his hand at being a cowboy. Sitting on a stubborn horse wasn't for Robert, but his love of nature and the outdoors never left him. He made unique New Mexican furniture. Robert was always busy fixing something or helping someone. Robert was predeceased by his beloved wife Mercedes, and mother-in-law Marina "Little Mama" Mora, brother Phil Abeyta, sister Lucy Portillos, and parents Adolfo and Manuelita Abeyta. Robert is survived by his son, Jose R. Abeyta, Jr.; his daughter-in-law, Ann; his granddaughter, Jennifer; his sisters, Mary Abeyta, Alice Abeyta and Gloria Turner and family; the Tafoya and the Trujillo families of Pueblo, Colorado; his brothers-in-law, Albert Portillos and Clarence Mora; his sister-in-law, Dora Garcia and their families; nieces and nephews; and his close friends, Ned and Isabel, Archie, Dale, and Vince; as well as other close friends from Springer and Albuquerque.
