Fidel Gilbert Gomez, born April 24, 1931, entered eternal peace on Saturday, September 21, 2019.

A U.S. Marine, he was recognized for valiant service, in the Korean Conflict and awarded a Purple Heart, for injuries sustained at the Chosin Reservoir, while assigned to the First Marine Division, Fox 2/7. Fidel formed lifelong bonds with his brothers of Fox 2/7, avidly attending reunions across the country, honoring this unit's history of distinguished service. He is survived by his children; Anna, Linda, Diana and Gilbert; sisters, Inocencia, Juanita, Maria, Martha and Patricia; grandchildren: Mark, Jason, Sandra, Jennifer, Catherine, Natalie, Jerome, Naomi, Justin, Benjamin, Dominic, Leah; and by ten great grandchildren. We extend our gratitude to the staff of Vitas Palliative Care.
