Gustavo Haroldo Fuentes, 64, of Houston, Texas passed way on Wednesday, October 31, 2018. He was born on November 5, 1953 in Tiquisate, Guatemala to Juan Gustavo and Blanca Berta Fuentes.

As a young man, he was athletic and loved playing soccer. He also enjoyed serving the Lord, and organizing youth events for his church.

Gustavo married the love of his life, Alma America Cabrera de Barillas on June 17, 1978 in Guatemala. They met at Iglesia El Mesias as they both worked in the youth ministry. Together they built a family of three children. He was a truly hard working, dedicated and loving husband, father, son, brother and grandfather who will be deeply missed. He was the rock and leader of the family.

Gustavo enjoyed fixing things around the house and doing yard work. He liked going to work and interacting with his coworkers and customers, but his true joy came with spending time and teaching the word of God to his family and grandchildren. He loved reading Billy Graham books, visiting historical places and anything about antique cars; he loved collecting antique toy cars. Family was everything to him. The moments that he treasured and that will always be cherished were; watching sports with his son, taking walks in the park and watching the ocean with his wife, going out to eat with the family and spending time together on Thanksgivings and Christmases. He loved playing with the family pet, Lulu. He loved spending time with his grandchildren more than anything; even after a long day at work, he would come home and play with his grandsons, Douglas and Dillon. He will be dearly missed and never forgotten.

Gustavo leaves behind to cherish his memory, his wife, Alma A. Fuentes; children, Glenda Day, Alma K. Fuentes and Jorge H. Fuentes; grandchildren, Douglas C. Day IV, and Dillon G. Day; son-in-law, Douglas C. Day, III; his mother, Blanca Berta Fuentes; brother Juan David Fuentes; sisters, Mirta Leticia Rodas, Mayra Fuentes (Zepeda), Maria Luisa Muñoz; Nephew, Alex Rodas; nieces, Cyndi Rodas, Sandy Rodas Paola Augustine, Monica Wilson, Berta Zepeda, Raquel Zepeda, other extended family, and a great circle of friends and countless people whose lives he touched.

My favorite memories will always be of your long wonderful prayers, that you delivered before a meal during any special occasion. The best were always when a waiter didn't know to stay or come back. That always gave me a chuckle under my breath. I love you and will always miss you.
