Gilbert Nieto

Obituary Condolences Flowers

Gilbert Jesse Nieto, 71, went peacefully to his eternal home on Monday afternoon August 18, 2014. Gilbert was born in Houston, TX on June 11, 1943 to Jesse and Lillian Nieto. Gilbert had many joys in his life and brought laughter to all that knew him. He loved RVing, fishing, watching family feud, Coney dogs, dressing up for Halloween and making people laugh. He also loved his dogs, that were always by his side. Most importantly he loved and knew Jesus, who is comforting him now.
Gilbert graduated from St. Thomas High School in '61. He completed 2 years of additional college and worked in sales during most of his working days although his ambitious character led him to other ventures such as massage therapy and night club owner for a time.
Gilbert was cared for by so many amazing hospital personnel and doctors over the years but he requested special thanks go to Dr. H. Kochar (Pulmonologist) who significantly increased his quality of life and to Vitas Hospice Care who cared for him and comforted the family when he started his new journey.
He is survived by his loving wife Theresa Nieto; Sons Frederick Nieto and Harry Glenn Nieto and wife Vicki Nieto and two grandchildren Joshua and Sean Nieto.
A visitation will be held on Friday, August 22nd from 6-8 pm at Forest Park Lawndale, 6900 Lawndale St. Houston Texas. Services will be held at this same location on Saturday, August 23rd at 10am. In his unwavering love for his dogs he has asked that donations be made to the Houston SPCA. in lieu of flowers.
