A celebration of life will be held:

1700 West F Street, Oakdale, CA 95361
It is with the greatest sadness that we announce the death of our loved One, our Brother, our Uncle, our Friend, Robert (Bob) Candelaria. As always, when life suddenly ends, there are no words to express how truly lost we feel. He will truly be missed.
He leaves behind his wife Martha Candelaria; daughter, Dalene Candelaria Alvarez; son-in-law, Leo Alvarez; and two grandchildren, Eli and Cheyenne Alvarez; as well as so many nieces and nephews and cousins, too many to name – all who adored him dearly.
Robert was born in Prescott, Arizona. Married for 46 years to wife Martha Candelaria. He lived in Oakdale/Modesto and worked at OlD for 30+ years. Bob served four years in the US Army during the Vietnam war. He spent most of his later years close to home on the ranch.
Bob was preceded in death by his Mother, Josephine Candelaria; Angie and Cipriano Montanio, Elizabeth and Richard Harrison, Frances and Lonnie Chavez, Rosie Candelaria, and Grace Candelaria.
Bob is also survived by, Evelyn and Jim Carrasco, Jenny and Ted Edwards, Esther and Joe Lucero, Phyllis and Frank Candelaria, Sam Candelaria, and Rosann and Darold Stewart.
We know that remembering is another way to love, may he rest in peace.
The Oakdale (Calif.) Leader
