At the time of his death, Robert Limon, 38, was living with Sabrina and their two children in Redlands, a small city within the Greater Los Angeles area. Employed as a railroad worker by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, he worked in Tehachapi – a mountain city nestled between the San Joaquin Valley and the Mojave Desert in California.
On August 17, 2014, Robert was out of the yard for the day before coming back about 5:00 p.m. Later that evening, he was shot dead. His body was discovered in one of the railroad buildings. And surveillance film had captured a single lone suspect prowling around the yard at the time of the murder.
Sabrina, 35, appeared to be grief-stricken. “The love he gave was more than some ever will feel or show,” she wrote on Facebook in memory of Robert. “I will carry it with me where ever I go, and remind our children of it daily as they grow. It’s a feeling of joy, yet I’m totally numb to the fact that I’m left on Earth now without him.”
