Leopoldo (Leo) Gonzales

Leopoldo Gonzales, 81, born in Lovato, New Mexico passed away on Saturday, February 3, 2018 surrounded by his family. Leo was preceded in death by his parents, Epimenio and Domitilia Gonzales; his beloved wife of over 35 years, Deluvina Ortiz; and his son, Leopoldo Jr. He leaves behind his many children, sons Daniel, Norman, James and Monica, Luis, Gabriel and wife Alicia; daughters, Charlene Urban, Darlene Gonzales and husband Orlando, Nanette Martos and husband Anthony, Melecia Garcia and husband Frank. He also leaves behind his sisters, Florinda, Sally, Rachel and Corrine, 19 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren. Leo was a hardworking family man who always did the very best he could to provide for them. He loved life and the outdoors. A strong willed tough man that had a good heart, Leo was a jokester who loved to laugh and make people laugh, even in his final hours. He will be greatly missed.
