El Paso

 

 

Robert “Bobby” Madrid, age 62, passed away Saturday October 29, 2022, surrounded by his wife and family at his home in El Paso, Texas.

He is proceeded in death by his parents, Mauricio D. and Amparo T. Madrid, his brother Jesus “Chuy” Madrid, sisters Maria “Cookie” Madrid, Margie Burrola and Martha “Mapi” Luna.  He is survived by his beloved wife Marissa De La Cruz, his cherished sons Robert Jr, Derek and Stephan Madrid. His adored grandchildren Harmony and Robert III (Trae) Madrid.  His beloved siblings; brother Daniel Madrid, sisters Mary Bautista, Francis Martin, Rosie Madrid, Sandra Gorney and Terri Madrid.  And all his favorite nieces, nephews, their children and his godchildren.

Robert has worked for Helen of Troy for over 10 years and has had a profound impact and influence on his family, friends and the community of El Paso in respect to his kindness, generosity, teachings, sense of humor and the gifts of his photography and musical compositions.   Robert has always been a very private and humble person who demonstrated his love for family and friends through everyday interactions without the need for grandiose gestures. He respected everyone as individuals, quick to laugh and joke but did not tolerate drama or shenanigans in any part of his life.  Robert’s musical gift and talent was expressed through the instruments he played and mastered, trombone, piano, harmonica and guitar, as well as his beautiful vocals and harmonies. He developed close bonds and relationships with his brother/sister musicians through the music he loved and performed.  He is an accomplished, published composer and songwriter whose music is being shared via The Robert Madrid Project.   Inspiration for some of his music was derived by life experiences, his worldly travels and by his  family.  He was a member of and sat in with many local bands: EKG and the Suicide Horns, Unfinished Business, El Paso Band, Kenji Tribe, Players, Alibi, Windy City, Rhapsody, Hypnosis and the Sunshine Pumpers, to name a few.  He was blessed with perfect pitch and a sense of loyalty and showmanship that will never be matched. He is loved and respected throughout the music/ musician community.

Special recognition for his brothers/ sisters bound by time, friendship and love of music, Joe Martin Gonzalez, Ernie Rivera, Raul Montes and Patty Fox.

Robert’s passing has left an immeasurable void in the lives of his wife, children, brother, sisters, nieces, nephews, godchildren, friends and all those blessed to know and love him.
