Julio Gomez Jr., age 77, passed away on February 8, 2021, with his wife and children by his side, after living with cancer for over nine years. Julio was born May 30, 1943 in Laredo, Texas to Julio and Angelita (Lopez) Gomez. He graduated from Martin High School in 1962 and enlisted in the U.S. Navy where he served until 1966, almost entirely aboard the U.S.S. Cunningham. After leaving the service, he married and made his home in Southern California, where he began his occupation as a printing press operator and spent time camping and motorcycling with his children, hiking in the Santa Ana mountains, and traveling throughout the state. Julio married Sharon Brenny in 1994, and they relocated to San Antonio, Texas the same year. Julio worked at Cenveo/Clark Printing from 1994 until he retired in 2008. He was a parishioner at St. Dominic Catholic Church where he volunteered with the Gardening Angels and delivered Meals on Wheels. He enjoyed gardening, fishing, road trips, walking his two little dogs, helping others and talking with anyone.
Julio was preceded in death by his parents, infant brothers, granddaughter Kaila Gomez, and former spouse Loretta Marlene (Sanchez) Schultz. He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Sharon; children Teresa (Oscar) Sanchez and Steve (Lorie) Gomez; siblings Hector (Elisa) Gomez, Yolanda Salinas, Felix (Alma) Gomez, Juan Jose (Aurora) Gomez, Mario (Norma) Gomez; grandchildren Michael Burnley, Celena (Ben) Bowers, Kory Gomez, and Mariah Gomez; step-grandchildren Shauna, Nick and Brandon Johnson, and Joe and Jayden Martinez; four great-grandsons; and numerous nieces, nephews, in-laws, other relatives and friends. He was a man of generosity, strength and integrity who will be deeply missed by those who knew him.

Julio was my backdoor neighbor and a friend. We would meet along the fence and talk occasionally, Julio would always be friendly and we enjoyed talking about his/my gardens. I would always enjoy talking to him and Sharon as they walked their dogs. I will miss Julio, he was a good neighbor, a true friend and a good person.

Living in the same neighborhood, I always enjoyed running to Julio on our street or at the grocery store. He was a kind, gentle, soft spoken man. He always had time to visit and always left me with a smile.
I’ll miss him.
