ODESSA Robert Gregory Dieste (Bobby), 63 years old, of Odessa, Texas and formerly of Marshall, Texas, passed away on July 28th. Bobby was born and raised in Marshall, Texas to Dr. and Mrs. Antonio Dieste. He graduated from Marshall High School, attended Kerrville Military Academy and Stephen F. Austin State University. Bobby enjoyed a long career in the oilfield services industry employed many years at Frank's International and most recently at Patterson. Bobby was dedicated to providing excellent advice and service to his customers. Most importantly, he was a loving stepfather, brother and friend to many with a kind heart of gold. He had a passion for art as well as rocks/gems, spending countless hours of his time carefully studying, collecting and discussing these prized possessions. Bobby is survived by his siblings: his brothers, Tony Dieste, John Dieste and his wife, Terri, and his sisters Martha Voss and her husband, Craig, Mary Pratt and her husband, Frank, Desiree Dieste and her partner Kristina, as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins. He is preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Mariana Dieste Mead. He is also survived by his stepson, Randy Villareal and his wife Kassy and their children and his former wife, Ruth Wright, and Bobby's stepmother, Martha Dieste Combs. A celebration of Bobby's life and memorial service will be held at a later time when circumstances surrounding COVID allow a safe gathering of family and friends.

Rest in peace, Bobby D


Dear Mary and family,

Although I did not know Bobby, I knew you and your dad so your brother has to have been a fine man. I lift your family in prayer.

Bobby always had a good heart! Randy and I shared allot of time with Bobby and his family as well. Years have past since I’ve seen Bobby. Still have a place in my heart for him! Rest In Peace my friend!


Went to school in Marshall with Bobby and knew his family pretty well growing up as our fathers were doctors everyone in town knew. We used to talk about how we could not get away with anything because lots more people knew our parents than we knew about and they did not hesitate to call them if we were where we were not supposed to be. He was always kind and funny. I pray for his family that they may find comfort at this time.
