On September 23, 1921, Jesus was born to Francisca Gonzalez in Fabens, Texas. He was the beloved husband of Manuela Rios Gonzalez, who preceded him in death. As a result of their happy union they had ten children, whom they dearly adored. Jesus was a hard worker that dedicated his life to being the best man for his family. Prior to retirement, he worked as a farm laborer. Jesus’ most memorable moments were dancing, listening to Mexican music, and eating at restaurants with his loved ones. He will be deeply missed by many, especially by those who had the honor to call him dad and grandpa.

“You lived your life one day at a time.
The words you shared were always kind. You loved us all with your golden heart.
It saddens us to
have to be apart. Forever we hold you
in our hearts.
Today you stand in God’s bright light. Watching over us day and night.
In our hearts you will remain until
the day we meet again…
Forever your love will live on in our hearts
and the hearts
of those you touched. We are so grateful that God blessed us with
the beautiful gift of you.
Proud that your blood runs through us.
Honored to carry
your legacy.
Dad, you will
truly be missed.”
