OBITUARY

Robert V. Gonzales

November 19, 1946October 16, 2020

Robert and his brothers made lifelong friends growing up in the St. Mary’s area, where he was known by the nickname of “Magoo.” He proudly served for three years in the army during the Vietnam War. Upon his return he married childhood friend Dolores Herrera and raised three children. He was a faithful husband and father and he helped support his family servicing vending machines and, later, making and installing shutters with his brother before eventually retiring. He later was able to reconnect with neighborhood acquaintance Blanca Morales and spent his last fourteen years with her volunteering at VFW Post 76 and traveling. Robert had a great sense of humor and enjoyed making his friends laugh. He enjoyed woodworking and watching sports, but his real passion was golf, which began as a child growing up next to Brackenridge Golf Course and continued throughout his life. He loved being a grandfather and cherished every moment he was able to share with his grandchildren Irene, Rylan and Reddick.

He was preceded in death by his parents and brothers Henry and Richard, and is survived by his wife Blanca, sister Doris and brother-in-law Gilbert, brother Lucio, brother Raymond, brother Roy and sister-in-law Candy, first wife Dolores and their three children Robert Jr., Rebecca and Ryan, his grandchildren and numerous nephews and nieces who all loved him dearly.

Visitation will be 5-8, Sunday October 25 at Sunset Funeral Home, with the Service scheduled at Monday 9am. Internment will be at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery at 10:15 with Military Honors.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the American Lung Association.
