Sylvester "Grande" Gonzales went to be with the Lord Saturday, Jan. 31, 2009, at his home in Tularosa.
Sylvester was a veteran of World War II where he served as a U.S. Marine. He retired from White Sands Missile Range as a millwright supervisor.
He enjoyed being around horses, going to horse races, shooting pool with friends and was always building something out of nothing. He will be greatly missed.
Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on his behalf Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2009, at 10 a.m. at St. Francis Catholic Church in Tularosa with Father Tran Nguyen, O.F.M., as celebrant.
Burial will take place following the Mass at Santo Nino de Atocha Cemetery in Three Rivers.
Sylvester is survived by his six children, Sylvia Telles and Jerry, Raul and Charlotte, Dianna Brusuelas-Guilez, Leo and Cathy, Richard and Jane, Ernest and Penny and the mother of these children, Mary Gonzales. He is also survived by his brother Gilbert Gonzales and two sisters, Clara Marrujo and Virginia "Virgie" Chavarria, and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
The Gonzales family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the funeral arrangements. Cremation will take place locally at PCS.
