Gome was 20 years old when he met his wife, Gloria, the love of his life. They were married for 50 years until her passing. They had four children and then the family kept growing with 16 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren. He made each grandchild feel special and loved. Everyone enjoyed listening to his life stories and especially his jokes. We often wondered how he came up with them so quickly. He was a hard worker and instilled this trait in his family. He began to work at the tender age of 6 picking up wool and eventually sheep shearing. He ran his own crew with the help of our mother for many years. He was well known with the local ranchers as he sheared for them at some point in his life. He loved the outdoors and he loved his horse making sure it was fed even before he had breakfast.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday, January 8, 2020, from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Recitation of the Holy Rosary at 7:00 pm. A mass of Christian Burial will be held on Thursday, January 9, 2020, at 12 noon at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church. Interment will follow at Sunset Memorial Oaks Cemetery.
