Robert was born in Pecos, TX on July 01, 1963, to Tomasa Acosta Tarin. His father is Bill Walter “Baril” Rheude from Odessa, TX.   Robert was raised by his grandparents, the late Santiago Tarin and Benita Acosta Tarin from Pecos, TX.  In his early teens, Robert had already acquired a love for classic cars and lowriders. He worked at Garcia’s Body Shop in Pecos, TX where the owner Ambrosio “Bocho” Garcia taught Robert the craft of auto body repair and paint. He loved drawing classic cars and transforming them into lowriders, and he had great talent with his free hand artistry. With his love of classic lowrider cars and trucks came the love for oldies music, from the ‘50s and ‘60s.  He was very proud of his collection of oldies music.  Not a day went by that he did not have music playing, day and night. Robert also learned the skill of carpentry work and was a man of many trades. In his later years, Robert became a member of the ‘Estilo Car Club’ in Lubbock, TX. and he took pride in the members’ classic cars and trucks that he helped repair. His love for lowriders was definitely lifelong.
