Gerardo Ernesto Gonzalez, Jr., 39, joined our Lord in His heavenly kingdom on Sunday, September 4, 2022.
He was born in Laredo, Texas and lived here his entire life. He was employed by Triple J. Logistics.
He loved being with his family and was the family prankster. He motivated his siblings and family. His favorite past times were watching boxing, UFC, listening to all genres of music, but especially 90’s music, carne asadas, and enjoyed eating at buffet restaurants.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather Gerardo Oscar Gonzalez.
