I grew up with the whole Gonzales family. We moved irrigation pipe, picked watermelons and cantaloupe together. Macario and I were like brothers cause we would play together and then get into a fight once in a while outside our work detail of course. He worked for my dad for many years and learned how to pick a ripe watermelon every time.
Thanks for the memories on the farm. We really had country living at its best.
Blessings to the family.

I went all the way through school with him. Rode the bus everyday with him. We had a lot of good times on the bus. Tommy Martinez was there and remembers.

Sad to hear. He will be missed.

Hearing about your loss has deeply saddened me, but I know that this is far from what you are going through right now. There are no words that I can say to help so all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and your family.

Prayers and hugs for all.

Macario and I joined the army together and spent almost our first four years together before separating and going in different directions. He was a great friend and we shared many many memories during that time. Macario, my army buddy, I will miss you. Daniel Gonzalez
