Robert Lovato

March 30, 1951 — December 10, 2019

Robert “Otto” Lovato, 68, passed away December 10, 2019 at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.

The oldest of 11 children, Otto was born in Rawlins, Wyoming on March 30, 1951 to Robert and Roma Lovato.

Known by many as a loved father, son, husband, grandpa, brother, uncle, cousin and friend he had an energy that couldn’t go unnoticed and always kept our lives interesting. He had a love for life and passion for family that made everything else in the world so small and he “didn’t sweat the small things.” Otto was a Marine, a medic, and a Vietnam Vet who proudly fought for all he believed. With an unselfish heart he devoted himself to protecting everyone else. From his time spent in war, his dedication to protect and stand for the family he loved and a battle with cancer that didn’t alter his smile; he held his head high as he continued to fight not letting go of the soul that we love. Otto will be missed by many as he continues his fight as a “Marine in the Army of God”.

Otto was preceded in death by his father, Robert Lovato; brother, Ernest Lovato; and sister, Robin Romero. He is survived by his mother, Roma Lovato of Chandler, AZ; wife, Ida Lovato; sons, Robert Lovato, Jacob Lovato and Matthew Lovato; daughter, Carrie Lovato; eight grandchildren, Marissa Lovato, Desiree Lovato, Breanna Lovato, Ariah Lovato, Jacob Lovato, Jayden Lovato, Mary Elizabeth Lovato and Emileah Lovato; great-grandchild, Nevaeh Gonzales; brothers, Anthony of Desert Hills, AZ, Michael of Laramie, WY, and John of Chandler, AZ; and sisters, Judene Buck of Portland, OR, Roma Audiss of Rapid City, SD, Aurmelia Decker of Cheyenne, Berna Lovato of Cheyenne and Ana Lovato of Chandler, AZ.
