Roberto was born to Maria Luisa Fernandez and Mateo Gonzalez in Monterrey, Mexico and was the eldest of 4 siblings. He studied accounting and worked alongside his siblings in their family business.

Roberto was a dedicated, kind hearted, hard-working father and husband, with a hidden sense of humor that surprised many. He had a creative and inventive mind and could be often be found working on projects for his family home.

He was proceeded in death by son Juan Gonzalez; father Mateo Gonzalez and mother Maria Luisa Fernandez.

We draw comfort from the wonderful memories made throughout the years, that will forever be in our hearts. But we lean most heavily on the promise that Christ has given us that we will be reunited at our Lord's second coming, to never be separated again per the following bible verse: 1 Thessalonians 4;13-18.

A memorial service for Roberto will be held Saturday March 6, 2021 at 4:00 pm at Miller Memorial Chapel, 1120 West Goshen Ave, Visalia, CA 93291.
