1/12/1961 – 3/31/2020
Jorge “Georgie” Antonio Robles passed away on March 31, 2020, after suffering a major stroke at home on March 29 with his partner of 10 years, Linda (Signor) Perreault, at his side.
Jorge was born on Jan. 12, 1961, in Los Angeles, to parents Jesus and Maria Robles, who were born in Mexico. He is preceded in death by his brother, Jesus Pedro Robles (Jesse), who passed away on Oct. 28, 2019.
He is survived by his son, Nicholas Robles (Deanna), grandson, Jonathan, and his daughter, Celine Robles. Jorge also leaves behind numerous family members in Arizona. He’s also survived by his partner, Linda Perreault and her daughter, Tessa Perreault (Ben Regan, fiancé).
Jorge grew up in Los Angeles and moved to Carpinteria in 2007. Always a hard worker, he started out very young working with his grandmother selling women’s clothing at the swap meet. He then began working in the 1980s with his father at the Forum, and then on to a longtime career at General Telephone, ultimately working in the construction industry—most recently, with Casa Construction, based in Santa Barbara.
“Georgie” will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He had a way of “making everyone’s day.” He was an amazing man who was always ready to lend an ear to listen and a big smile to share. He was a genuine man to embrace. He was always ready to talk about life’s lessons. On his 59th birthday in January, he checked off one of his top bucket list items, skydiving! Mostly he loved his family, friends, Coors Lite, music, sports, a good Bloody Mary, detailing cars, road trips to Laughlin, playing softball, and all children and animals. He is also survived by his one-year-old rescue three-legged kitten, Shelby (“his baby”).
Good jokes, countless laughs and a zest for life that is hard to match—Georgie was always rich in the things that mattered in life.
He keeps telling me from Heaven, that I am loved and cared for. Jorge, you will be missed forever.
The family wishes to thank all those who expressed their condolences to them during this difficult time.
There will be a memorial announced in the future, when it is possible to get everyone together to celebrate Georgie’s life. Cheers!
