I remember meeting your family when we came to El Paso for Martin and Nelda’s wedding at your Mom and Dad’s home. I have always admired how close the Hinojosa family is and the love you share for each other. Losing someone dear is so sad and difficult to handle the emotions, but your parents obviously taught you all how to rely on each other and your faith to get through it. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My deepest condolences to the family.
From everything my dad, Victor, told me about Tio Gilberto, he was a man who had an open heart and who cared about everyone.
I had only gone to visit him a handful of times with my dad, but he welcomed me in his home and I never felt like a stranger.
He was such a warm person, and always wanted to make sure I had filled my plate anytime there was a gathering at his house.
I wish I had known him better.
My dad used to tell me how kind he was, and how he helped out the family. He would always say, "Your Tio is a good person."
Now he's up in heaven with my dad. I know that they are looking down on us.
To his family - my deepest condolences. We love you and we are here for you.
- Alex Hinojosa Furr, Joseph Furr, Norma Hinojosa and baby Shawn Furr

“Grandpa, I want you to know that you are my hero. 💙. For as long as I can remember you were my ‘safe place.’ When I was with you or talked to you I was a little girl all over again, walking hand in hand as we would when you’d take me to buy a chocolate donut from the local bakery. With every moment spent with you, nothing in this world mattered but you. I am so proud to be your granddaughter. Thank you for showing us all what LOVE & STRENGTH really is. You ARE and will ALWAYS BE the STRONGEST person I have EVER KNOWN and I carry that same strength with pride, knowing that I learned it and inherited it from you. Your ability to see the humor and grace in life is so beautiful that I pray that God leads me to live the rest of my life the exact same way. You have done so much for our entire family and each of us asked you to hold on and keep on going probably for much longer than you wanted to and now my sweet, dear grandpa we must let you rest. You are deeply loved and we, most importantly I WILL NEVER let your legacy fade. For as long as I live and my children live and their children live and so on... they will know what a strong, intelligent, witty, kind & loving soul you were grandpa! You will never be forgotten. I look forward to the day I get to hug you and talk to you for an endless amount of time again in God’s kingdom! 🙏🏻🙏🏻💙💙😘😘
I will love you forever Champ! God Bless You grandpa! 💙🙏🏻”
Love, Jenny (your “beautiful”)

My Grandpa wasn't only my Grandpa but he was my Dad. He raised me and if it wasn't for him I wouldn't be successful. He was the rock of our Hinojosa family and the one who could always get us in a good mode. I will miss him telling us his ranch stories and how many chickens his Dad used to have. I will miss his laughs and his jokes. El Paso will never be same now that his not with us. I know his in a better place but can't help but feel selfish because his not with me. I love you Grandpa/Dad but I know your with Grandma, Nina, Uncle Tury and Uncle Gilbert. Please come visit me soon in my dreams! I love you always and forever!
