April 1, 1962 – October 14, 2019
Gilbert Romo, age 57, of Weslaco, Texas passed away on Monday October 14, 2019. Gilbert was born April 1, 1962 to Isabel and Juanita Romo.
Gilbert is survived by his brother Leonardo Romo (Susana), sister Aurora Romo, sister Mary Romo, brother Rick Romo, brother Luis Romo (Irene), sister Olga Romo, brother Rolando Romo, sister Janie Romo and sister Mary Cabrera (Armando).
Gilbert was preceded in death by; his father Isabel "Chavelo" Romo; baby sister Maria Elena Romo; sister Maria Elena Ramirez (+Dionicio); brother Jose Angel Romo; brother Juan Antonio Romo and brother Jesus Romo.
Gilbert was a loving son always willing to help out in every occasion. From decorating houses for the holiday's, prepping meals for parties, or fundraisers. His specialty was his famous potato salad. He helped raise and take care of Lisa and Nicho and he was like a father to Destiny and Desire, Gilbert was a great uncle to many. He would joke with love and he would fight with Arielle over 'the chair" and we all knew he had the final decision of who's pictures would go on the fridge. He was full of life and attitude. Gilbert will greatly be missed by all who knew him and he will forever hold a special place in all of his families hearts.

My condolences to the Romo family. Gilbert was an amazing person my fondest memory of Gilbert is he was my Chamberlain for Yolanda Vasquez 15th Quincenera when we were young and he taught me how to Dance . He was light on his feet and danced like there was no tomorrow. He was such a great person and a cutie pie. Thank you my friend for the memories. I will forever miss you my Wero.
Rip you silly man😢🙏💜
Dance with the Angels!
Till we Dance again in Heaven! 💜
