Corbert Buddy Gomez III

Corbert Gomez III

Corbert J. (Buddy) Gomez, III, 60, went into pain-free Peace on February 25, 2016 with his wife, children and grandchildren at his side after a courageous, unrelenting battle with lung cancer.  We celebrate his kind and vivacious life in fond memory.  He resided in Dickinson, Texas with his loving wife, Janice, and his in- laws, Gene and Joyce Stansbury.  He had lived his youthful years in Jacksonville, Florida.  Buddy was a loving husband, father, father-in law, brother, brother-in-law, son-in-law, grandfather, great story teller, true lifetime friend who knew few strangers, and a self-proclaimed amateur political consultant.  He cheerfully offered his opinion about anything to anyone who would listen.  His unparalleled skills in commercial air conditioning construction, as well as anything that needed fixing, will remain forever legendary.

He was predeceased by his mother, Ellen Gomez; father, Corbert J. Gomez, Jr.; sister, Katie Jo Cooper; brother, James Preston Gomez, Sr. and great grandchild, Nicole Rayann.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 40 years, Janice Gomez; daughter, Gina de Forrest (Virgil); son, Corbert J. Gomez, IV (Rita); daughter, Liberty Baugh (Isaiah);  grandchildren: Madelynne, Tara, Virgil, Jr., Mallory, Rachel, Josh, Jeremy, Hope, Faith, Aubrianna, Tristen, Brayden and  9 great grandchildren; sister, Linda Bartley (widowed); sister, Julie Dekker (Randy); sister, Tina Neff (Richard) and many nieces and nephews.
