It has been said that Mr. Flores was a positive and cheerful person who loved to live life to the fullest, as he always had a joke to tell. As his family and friends meant a lot, Bob had a roster of people he would keep in touch with on a daily basis. Bob was an avid sports fan who has a cap for about every team. However, golf was his passion, even in the rain. On a nice day, you could find him sitting outside listening to music, enjoying the weather or bar be cueing with a cold one.
He was an active member of the Knights of Columbus in Lufkin where he made many lifelong friends.
Survivors include his wife, Rita; a daughter Andrea Flores; a sister Mary Lou Zapata and husband Tom.
For those desiring, the family has suggested the Wounded Warriors Project. org for memorial contributions.
