March 30, 1949 – September 3, 2020
Gabriel Cavazos of Dallas, TX went home to be with the Lord on September 3, 2020 at 71 years of age.
Gabriel was a Sergeant who selflessly served in the US Army during the Vietnam War. He was tenacious in his fight in combat as he was in his battle with the corona virus. More-so, he was a family man who made it his life’s work to show his love and adoration to his wife and family, with the heart of a child who would do anything to make them smile. A Carpenter by trade, he was a man’s man who loved to engage in banter with friends and family and even strangers. He was one of the biggest Dallas Cowboys football fans we’ve ever known and life long bingo lover. His contagious smile, his laugh and his louder-than-life voice will forever be missed.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 54 years, Consuelo Cavazos; his son, Steve Cavazos; his daughter-in-law, Teresa Cavazos; his daughter, Kimberly Ramirez; his son-in-law, David Ramirez; as well as his 5 grandchildren, David Angel Cavazos, Issac Andrew Cavazos, Alyssa Marie Cavazos, Jaslyn Faith Cavazos and Ava Grace Ramirez; his great grandson Isaiah Leon Villareal; and his siblings, Daniel Cavazos, Cecil Cavazos, Gina Escobedo and Arthur Cavazos.
A Viewing will be held on Thursday, September 17, 2020 from 3:30 - 7:30pm, at Laurel Land Funeral Home.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, September 18, 2020 at 12:00pm, at Laurel Land Memorial Chapel. An interment will follow at 2:30pm at DFW National Cemetery, 2000 Mountain Creek Parkway, Dallas TX 75211.

After my grandma's funeral, everyone came to her house for dinner. Somehow them bones (Dominoes) came out. I decided to join and Uncle Gab was on the table. I came to the table intentionally not knowing how the game was played. I always let my opponent underestimate me. I let him explain the game and gave him the first W (win). He would talk some noise and I would let him. But that second game, I let him have it (I won). That seat at the table I will always remember. He told stories of my grandma and how she played the game of dominoes and so many other stories. I hate the fact that this was the last time I've seen him. 71 yrs is a great life. I hope I can reach that and more.
My heart is with you Steve and family. I love you and remember you are blessed.

You will be deeply missed. I remember when I was little, you were the one who showed me how to shuffle cards the right way and who always brought me and Kim chocolate soldier drinks from the store. After me and Martin got married, we always had the best time playing cards with you. Martin was always amazed that you always knew what cards everyone was holding. You always called us by our last names, I was always "Cox" and Martin was always "Alonzo". We find comfort knowing you are no longer sick and that you are in Heaven with God. We love you so much!
