When God decided to bless Cindie Barrera DeLeon & Lou Gonzalez on Dec 21, 1995, he sent a "sweet" soul.

This beautiful soul would not only become the center of his Mother's world but become the love that carried his father's name. As he grew up in Corpus Christi, TX, he was known as "Sweet Lou."

The one with the smile that everyone gravitated to, the one that carried a Christ like kindness that never left anyone a stranger after encountering him, the one that had a witty response that resulted in a much needed laugh. For so many his presence alone was the light capable of making a great day even greater.

Of all the titles he held- Moody Baseball Player, academic honors scholar, fisherman, avid golfer, hunter, mechanical engineering student, - there was one he was the most proud of, the one he shouted from the roof tops..."Mama's Boy!"

The only desires in this child's heart were to love & take care of his Mom & make his Dad proud- to which he succeeded in unimaginable amounts.

After a devastating diagnosis of Leukemia, he fought long and hard in the trenches alongside the amazing medical team at MD Anderson, his Auntie Nena, Delfina & Luis Gonzalez (grandparents), Sonia & Michael Medina (Aunt & Uncle), #teamlou- all while never losing the tight grip of his heartbroken Mother & Step Father's (Gilbert DeLeon) hands.

June 10, 2018 3:35pm -our warrior flew to heaven as Cindie & Big Lou gently whispered that he had won the battle and it was time to go home.

He is preceded in death by his paternal great grandparents Eduardo & Cristelia Barrera, maternal great grandparents Juanita Foster, Warren Foster and Albesio Montavlo & paternal grandfather, Silvestre A. Rios.

He is survived by his loving parents Cindie & Gilbert DeLeon & Luis A. “Lou” & Lilly Gonzalez, sister Serena Viannay Gonzalez & brother Adrian Christopher Gonzales & brother & sister Gilbert & Alyssa DeLeon, Godson Marcus Gabriel Ortiz, Grandparents Diane & Edward Barrera, Grandparents Luis & Delfina Gonzalez, Grandparents Linda & Sam Frias & grandmother San Juanita Rios, Auntie Nena Barrera, Aunt & Uncle Sonia & Michael Medina & numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and countless of friends.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, June 14, 2018 from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Ss. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church.

Visitation will continue Friday morning June 15, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Memory Gardens Funeral Home till time of departure to SS. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church for a funeral mass at 2:00 p.m. with interment to follow at Memory Gardens Cemetery.

Hello Lou.

You were honestly a great person of interest, a wonderful nice friend.
My first day as a freshman you and Richie were my very first high school friends, you were there to say hi and to welcome me , and treat me like a friend you’ve known forever.
you spoke some certain things and gave specific advice about some material things in life.
I wanted to tell you how much I was thankful for your huge act of kindness around the school and on the field , and I know we didn’t talk as much but when we did, it was pretty cool and nice to just talk you know?
As I was gunna message you the things that were on my mind about you, you were already gone to better place , to a place where all our loved ones who are welcoming you to the safe place of no more suffering but only caring and loving.
I only wished for the best for you and my prayer did happen, god helped you and helped all of us seize your painful sickness and I’m glad your no more suffering, I’m glad you put so much love in all these peoples hearts , your family , your friends , most of all yourself but you were you because of the love you had in your heart.

Rest easy my friend.

One day I’ll see you again.

Big Lou,

My heart aches for you and your family. Although I did not know Lou, Jr. (aka "Sweet Lou") that long, he certainly seemed to be a fine young man and certainly did his father proud as I know he did.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, my brother.

May God Bless!!
