On Sept. 21, 2014, Pati Navalta Poblete’s world fell apart.
That’s the day her son Robby was shot and killed in Vallejo. He was only 23 at the time, with his whole life ahead of him.
“He was actually just on the verge of getting offered a full-time job,” Poblete said.
Robby worked as a fabricator at a biotech firm, and was learning to weld. He’d been hired as a temp, but the firm had offered him an interview for a full-time position, his mother said.
