Gabriel spent 42 years in promoting culture, leadership, and public services in the Joliet’s Hispanic Community.

In his leisure time, he loved to conversate and joke around with his patrons at the bar he owned.    He enjoyed reading books, and was on a Mexican fast pitch league, an avid bowler, and a great pool shooter.

Gabriel had a big heart and was a very generous person.  A person who would like to support everyone in everything.  It made his day to hear about his kids and grandkids accomplishments.  His great grandchildren excel in school and sports warmed his heart.

Per His wishes, no services will be held.
