Joe Cruz Gonzales, Jr.

Joe Gonzales, Jr.

     Joe Cruz Gonzales, Jr. was born on October 13,1973 in Galveston, Texas. He was a longtime resident of Bacliff, Texas and worked as a commercial fisherman for many years out of Galveston Bay, alongside his father, the late Joe Cruz Gonzales, Sr.

     Joe was a simple man with a big heart who loved and cared for his family and friends. He was the comedian of the family, who loved to tease and play jokes on everyone.  There was never a dull moment when he was around. He loved watching sports and was a die-hard fan of the Philadelphia Eagles. He had a heart like no other and was the first to give when someone was in need and never asked for anything in return. He will always be remembered as the one you could count on, in your brighter days or your darkest nights. He will be missed by his loving family and the many friends he has left behind. 

     Joe is preceded in death by his father Joe Cruz Gonzales Sr. He is survived by his mother Frances Gonzales of Bacliff, Texas and his Sister Norma Linda Enriquez and husband Mario of Bayview, Texas, his brother Chris Daniel Gonzales of Bacliff, Texas and sister Trisha Denise Gonzales of Seymour, Indiana. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews whom he all adored. You will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts.

     A visitation and Celebration of Life Service will take place on Sunday, May 6, 2018, from 3-6pm in the chapel of Carnes Funeral Home of Texas City.
