Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Ralph Louis Gonzales, Jr., age 75, was born May 6, 1944, in Roswell, New Mexico. He passed away on November 13, 2019, while sleeping, in Long Beach, California. Louie, as he was known by, is preceded by his wife, Wendy; his son, Michael; his mother, Mary C. Gonzales; and his father, Ralph Gonzales, Sr.  He is survived by his children: Robert, Carla, Desarie; and his 19 grandchildren.

Louie served in the US Army from September 11, 1962, through September 10, 1968, receiving an honorable discharge. He moved to California after serving in the Army and resided in Long Beach, CA, where he spent over 25 years as a Longshoreman. Louie loved road trips and would drive to Roswell every year to see his aunts, uncles, and cousins. His wish was to be laid to rest where his life began and to be near his father’s grave – and so, Roswell will forever be his home. We love you Daddy and Grandpa and will miss you for the rest of our lives.

Services to be held on Monday, November 25, 2019, 2:00 PM, at Anderson Bethany Funeral Home, 2609 S Main Street, Roswell, NM. Immediately following the service, interment with military honors will be at General Douglas McBride Veterans Cemetery.
