Manuel Robles

Manuel Robles-Grajeda, age 72, of Hays, Kansas, passed away peacefully on March 31, 2024, at Hays Medical Center. He was born on September 1, 1951, in Chihuahua, Mexico, to the late Andres Robles and Guadalupe Grajeda. On December 3, 1972, he married the love of his life, Hermelinda Trevizo, in Chihuahua. Together, they embarked on a journey, moving to the United States in the early 1990s and eventually settling in Hays, Kansas, 13 years ago.

Manuel was a dedicated farmer who took great pride in his work. However, his true passion lay in his family. He was a loving husband to Hermelinda, a devoted father to his children, and a doting grandfather to his 15 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Manuel's playful spirit and sense of humor endeared him to his family and friends. He was known for his fondness for pickled jalapeños, which he enjoyed daily, his love of games, particularly pool, dominos, and poker, and his jovial nature brightened many gatherings.

He is survived by his wife, Hermelinda, of Hays; his children, Manuel Robles of Burlington, Colorado, Dora Robles and husband Javier Arzaga of Stratton, Colorado, Alejandro Robles and wife Patricia Cano of Hays, Hilda Robles and husband Jesus Bustillos of Hays, and Ivan Robles and wife Johnae Blackmon of Hays. Manuel is also survived by 15 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren, and a brother and sister in Mexico.

Manuel was preceded in death by his parents; a daughter, Maria Robles; and his seven siblings.

Funeral services to celebrate Manuel's life will be held at 10:00 AM on Thursday, April 4, 2024, at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Hays. Following the service, Manuel will be laid to rest in the church cemetery.

Visitation will be 3:00 PM – 9:00 PM on Wednesday April 3, 2024 at Keithley Funeral Homes and Crematory-Brock’s Chapel 2509 Vine Hays, KS 67601. A rosary service will be at 7:00 PM

May his soul rest in eternal peace, and may his memory continue to bring a legacy of love, laughter, and cherished memories to those who knew and loved him.
