On January 22, 2022, we lost a great man, friend, and son. Robert F. Reader II was an icon in his own right within the Via Pacifica Gardens community.
He was a great coach, a true friend, a die-hard San Francisco 49ers and Giants fan, yet loved all sports. He was also someone who would tell it like it is.
Robert spent 18 years as a resident of Scotts Valley and nearly 14 years in Aptos. He was loved by all as he was full of life. Robert was known as “Blue” by many. He coached basketball for Bethany College.
Unfortunately, Robert had no next of kin to be able to handle his affairs in the event of his untimely death. However, he did entrust Phillip and Destiny with his instructions and wishes prior to his passing and as his friends we are making an effort to get him to his final resting place in Jackson, CA, where he wanted to be laid to rest next to his father.
Phillip and Destiny have worked hard with the Deputy Public Administrator of Santa Cruz Cunty in order to put things in order to accomplish Robert’s instructions and wishes.
A GoFundMe Account has been established to help us fulfill his wishes and instructions. The link is https://gofund.me/843df1b8 for online donations.
To give a donation in person, please contact Destiny Castillo at (831) 353-1680 or (831) 794-3846. All donations are highly appreciated and will go toward Robert’s cremation and burial expenses.
We thank you in advance for your support at this time. As his friends and as a community you will help to accomplish Robert’s last wishes.
Thank you and God bless!
