Tim Gonzales Jr., age 61, of Thornton, Colorado passed away on Friday January 4, 2019. Tim was born August 17, 1957. Tim was never afraid to speak his mind. There was no challenge ever too big for him, including cancer. Tim loved his grand-kids, fishing, barbecues, and the Broncos. He was always the first to offer help from babysitting to home projects. He had no filter and was never politically correct. More than anything, Tim loved and was the most proud of his family. Tim is survived by his wife JoAnn Mirelez and three children Adrian “Boo-Boos” Gonzales, Randy “The Fish” Gonzales, and Peter “Malsconi” Mirelez. Seven grandchildren DreSean “Teegs”, Isabel “Whistles”, Madison “Dolls”, Matthew “Charlie”, RJ “Cheech”, Pete, and Essence. Siblings Pam Lopez and Joyce Dramas. Tim is preceded in death by his Mother Ruth Vallegos, Sister Rhonda Lee DeHerrera, Brother Ricardo Gonzales, and uncle “Sonny” Quintana

I remember when pompo took me and teegs up to St. Vrain up in Longmont to go fishing. I caught a big fish on my baby pole and he jumped into the water to save the fish and the pole. Teegs and I had to pull him out and I will never forget this.

Uncle Tim,
I have so many memories and love with with you. As a kid you helped coach me and we even shared the same room. when you would get home late from work you would take off your shoes and the entire room would smell like feet. My older sister Delilah and myself would make fun of you and you would ask us if we wanted a whooping. You were the uncle everyone feared but the uncle everyone loved. Some of the best times in my life were your summer barbecues. You had a great taste in music and once you would pull out your cds we all knew it was going to be a late night. The best thing that you ever did for me uncle Tim was loving my father and being a great brother. A couple weeks before you passed you made an effort with a broken down, tired body to visit my dad just to tell him to continue his fight. Uncle Tim, this is not a goodbye this is rest easy until we meet again. I love you always and forever!

evenings Tim and his son’s Adrian & Randy would come over to watch WWE wrestling on TV.
I miss you and love you always.
We will see each other again

Mr. Gonzales, I do not believe I had the pleasure of meeting you. However, I know your sons Adrian and Randy. I can tell you this sir, you raised two of the most honest, good hearted, hard working guys I know. I respect them, and I wish I had a relationship with my father like they had with you. My thoughts are with your family, may you rest in eternal peace.

I was so Blessed to grow up with Tim, he was my first cousin Tim was like my brother. My mom and Tim's mom was Close we lived together if not next door of a few blocks from my house. I have so many memories when Tim and I would have a chili eating contest we would see how many jalapenos wrapped up in a tortilla. Then we would fill up our mouths with sugar to help with the heat. I was 8 years old tim was 11. Tim you gave me so Many memories and you will be missed Deeply But Never Forgotten.
