It is with deep sadness we announce the death of Robert Charles Romo at the age of 21. Robert was born April 24, 1997 in Phoenix.
Robert graduated from Red Mountain High School in Mesa, in May 2015 where he was on the wrestling team, part of JROTC and helped lead the Anime Club. He was a certified lifeguard, as well as a member of The Boy Scouts of America. He went on to study to become an Auto Mechanic at Lincoln Tech in Colorado. Most recently he was employed with Ace Performance Automotive, 4 Wheel Parts and Larry H. Miller Chrysler Dodge Jeep.
Robert had a passion for being with family and friends - he had a great smile and would light up the room. He was always willing to do whatever was needed to help others. Robert enjoyed taking his Jeep into the Arizona Desert for some off-roading or mudding. He loved the outdoors, whether it was camping, hiking, shooting, or fishing.
Robert leaves behind many friends and family. Robert is survived by his father Charles Romo, his mother Amber Hunsaker Romo Finitzer, his step-father John A. Finitzer, and his step-mother Stephanie Edwards. Also, surviving are his brothers Cody Romo and Ryan Romo, his sisters Lexi Finitzer, Sierra Finitzer, and Daisy Romo, and his step-brother Gabriel Edwards.
