Obituary of Fabian Rocha

A Fabi le sobreviven sus hijos, Maricella Danielle Hernandez (Tristyn), Angelica Marie Rocha, Fabian Rocha Jr. y Carlo Ramon Rocha; al igual que su papa Ramon Rocha (Leonor), hermano Richard Rocha (Shari), y sobrino Richard Rocha Jr.  Le precedieron en la muerte su “Grams” Jenny Calzaretta, mama Anna Marie Rocha, y hermano Ramon Rocha Jr. Son innumerables los familiares y amigos que quedan para llorar su fallecimiento y compartir en su memoria.

 
Fabian, Fabi, Cuz, Big Bird, Pachuquillo eran solo algunos de los nombres por los que todos lo conocíamos. Pero el nombre del que estaba más orgulloso era papá. Fue un padre dedicado a sus cuatro hijos y todo lo que hizo fue por ellos. A los ojos de sus hijos, no era nada menos que un héroe. Llevaba los zapatos de mamá y papá y se rodeó a sí mismo y a los niños de familiares y amigos a los que confió para compartir su viaje como padre soltero.

 
Comenzó una carrera como camionero a la edad de 16 años y luego logró uno de sus objetivos de tener su propio camión y remolque. Sin embargo, su mayor logro profesional fue comenzar su propio negocio de camiones en el 2017 el cual es llamado Rocha and Sons Transport LLC. El estaba tan orgulloso de estos logros. El orgullo se mostró en su sonrisa mientras pasaba tiempo trabajando en su camion y enseñando a sus hijos sobre el mantenimiento regular y teniendo a cada uno de ellos sentado en el asiento del pasajero a su lado. Combinando la vida laboral con la vida familiar, organizaba largos viajes por todo el país cargando a sus hijos en el camión de 18 ruedas. Juntos emprendieron unas vacaciones familiares con destino final como las playas y Disney Land.

 
Fabián nunca rechazó la oportunidad de celebrar la vida con su familia y amigos. Probando tequila y cerveza, escuchando música, representando el amor de conejo, llamando repetidamente a su familia y amigos que se habían ido a la cama a la hora normal y molestando a sus vecinos con su elección de música extra alta. Todos deseamos tener más tiempo con él, pero siempre valoraremos el tiempo que tuvimos. Echaremos mucho de menos el recuerdo de la forma en que se iluminaba una habitación cuando él entraba. 

 
Celebraremos la vida de Fabián el Domingo 15 de Mayo (Visitación de 4-9pm y Rosario a las 6pm). Seguido por el Servicio y Entierro el Lunes, 16 de Mayo (9:00-1pm con el Servicio a las 12pm) en Mission Funeral Home Serenity Chapel, 6204 S. 1st St. Austin, Texas 78745.

La familia desea extender su gratitud a toda la familia y amigos por su amor y apoyo.

Fabian Rocha, age 41, died Monday, May 9, 2022.  

 

Fabi is survived by his children Maricella Danielle Hernandez (Tristyn), Angelica Marie Rocha, Fabian Rocha Jr. and Carlo Ramon Rocha as well as his father Ramon Rocha (Leonor), brother Richard Rocha (Shari) and nephew Richard Rocha Jr.  He was preceded in death by his “Grams” Jenny Calzaretta, mother Anna Marie Rocha, and brother Ramon Rocha Jr.  There are countless family and friends that remain to mourn his passing and sharing in his memory.  

 

Fabian, Fabi, Cuz, Big Bird, Pachuquillo were just a few of the names we all knew him by, but the name he was most proud of was Dad.  He was a devoted father to his four children and everything he did was for them.  In his children's eyes he was nothing short of a hero.  He wore the shoes of both mom and dad.  He surrounded himself and the kids with family and friends that he entrusted in sharing his journey as a single dad.    

 

He started a career as a truck driver at the age of 16 and later achieved one of his goals of owning his own truck and trailer.  His biggest career accomplishment, however, was starting his own trucking business in 2017, Rocha and Sons Transport LLC.  He was so proud of these accomplishments.  The pride showed in his grin as he spent time working on his truck and teaching his sons about regular maintenance and having each of them sitting in the passenger seat next to him. Combining work life with family life, he would arrange long hauls across the country loading his kids in the 18-wheeler.  Together they would set out on family vacations with final destination such as beaches and Disney Land. 

 

Fabian never turned down an opportunity to celebrate life with his family and friends.  Sampling tequila and beer, blasting music, throwing up the bunny, repeatedly calling his family and friends that had gone to bed at normal bedtime hours, and annoying his neighbors with his choice of extra loud music.  We all wish we had more time with him, but we will always value the time we did have.  The memory of the way a room lit up when he walked in will be greatly missed. 

 

We will celebrate Fabian’s life at Mission Funeral Home Serenity on Sunday, May 15 with Visitation from 4-9 pm and a Rosary at 6 pm. Followed by Service at 12 noon (chapel opens at at 9am) and Burial at 1 pm on Monday, May 16 at Mission Funeral Home Serenity Chapel, 6204 S 1st St, Austin, TX 78745.

 

The family wishes to extend their gratitude to all the family and friends for their love in support.
