Our beloved Robert was called home on Nov. 30, 2013. The Lord took his hand and walked him peacefully home.
He leaves behind his grieving family, the love of his life, Kim Hoffman, and their expected baby (due in the summer) of Seiad Valley. He also leaves his parents, Tom and Linda Pimentel of Seiad Valley and Frank and Judy Sanchez of Seiad Valley. Robert was an only child, so the two sisters raised their children together. He is also survived by his beloved grandma Avalee "Pudgy" Young of Seiad Valley; his daughters, Kalynn (Tylena) Pimentel of Colorado Springs, Colo. and Alyssa (Rob) Pimentel-Charlan of Happy Camp; his stepdaughters, Ashely Baker, Hailey, Chelsea and Lacey Estep of Seiad Valley; his stepson, Michael Emerson of San Jose; his sister, Jamie (George) and Tera Orge of Happy Camp; his brothers, Frank and Kimberly, and Frankie and Monica Sanchez of Brentwood; his brother, Brandon Pimentel of Redding; adopted brother, Steve Haack of Seiad Valley; and brother, Bear Matthew and Tracy Hedges and family of Cottonwood. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Tayven Pimentel of Colorado Springs and Alysson Charlan of Happy Camp, as well as lots of other extended family and friends, who loved and miss him deeply, including his mother-in-law Marj Hoffman of Yreka.
He was predeceased by his grandparents, Jess and Mary Pimentel; his papa, Robert Young; his brother, Thomas Pimentel; and Papa Bear Hedges. All were there to meet him.
"Though your smile is gone forever, and your hand we cannot touch, we still have many memories of the one we loved so much. Your memory is our keepsake with which we'll never part. God has you in his keeping, but we have you in our hearts. You'll always be missed and never forgotten."
Girdner Funeral Chapel was in charge of the cremation. There may be services at a later date.
