RAMON P. GONZALES
VICTORIA - On March 28, 2013 our loving father Ramon P. Gonzales went to be with our Lord and Savior, where he most certainly was met by his loving wife Rosa A. Gonzales. He was surrounded by his children, grandchildren and his loved ones as he took his last breath. He was an amazing man and a very hard worker who loved life to the fullest. It is with great sadness that we bid him farewell but gives us great joy to know he will suffer no more. He lived his life with great honor, integrity and with an unconditional love for his family. He began as a boy in the cotton fields of Texas and rose to the top as a business owner of 45 yrs in commercial, industrial and residential masonry. He was always known for his kindness and as a man of his word. He was loved and respected by all who truly knew him.
He is survived by companion, Rosa Martinez, daughters, Lourdes Sanchez (Larry), Victoria, Diana Gonzales, Harker Heights, sons, Michael Ramon Gonzales (Ann Margaret), Victoria, sisters, Paulita Ramirez, San Jose California, Orlia Garcia, Telferner, Sally G. Ortega, Telferner, Alma Reyes, Bloomington; nine grandchildren.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Rosa Artiaga Gonzales, sisters, Maria Elena Gonzalez, Pilar Tester and Amelia Olguin, brothers, Alfredo P. Gonzales and Valdemar P. Gonzales.
Visitation will be on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 4 p.m. with a Rosary at 7 p.m. at Artero Memorial Chapels. Visitation will resume on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at 9 - 10 a.m. with a Mass at 10 a.m. at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church. Burial will follow at Resurrection Cemetery.
Pallbearers: Matthew Sanchez, Jared Filip, Christian Gonzales, Marcelo Garcia, Jr., David Gonzales and Ruben Salinas.
We the Gonzales family would like to thank every one of you that took the time to include our father and our family in your prayers. It is selfish for us to be saddened that we no longer have him here for our benefit when he is for the first time in over 60 years living pain free and healthy. We take solace in knowing that he is now living an eternal life that is not possible on earth. Dad we love you and will always miss you. PS: After you've had your first dance in the heavens, give Mom a hug and kiss from all of us.
