Life Story / Obituary
Junior Gonzalez’s life journey came to an end on Friday, May 10th, 2019. Leaving his loved ones with a great void in their hearts. He was born in Racine, WI on March 25, 1985.
Junior obtained his HSED from Gateway Technical College in 2005 and for most of his adulthood, he worked at Putzmeister as a Team Lead. At a young age, Junior stepped into manhood and took on the responsibility of financially supporting a household, becoming a Father and a provider. Junior was a family- oriented man. He was a proud loving father and he always let everyone know that his sons were his most prized possession. His nuclear family meant the world to him.
On October 11th, 2007, Junior accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior. He envisioned himself as a Joel Olsteen or TD Jakes, a motivational speaker and an inspiration to others.
Junior was very social and if you were a stranger standing near him within a couple of minutes you were his friend. Sooner or later you would receive a call from him asking “whatcha doing” without the need of a special occasion. He would always rally family and friends to create memories. If it wasn’t a night of marathon bowling and /or a game of ping-pong, it was playing the family card game “Rummy” or Mexican bingo (Loteria). Other interests were going to movies or billiards.
Junior was very creative and loved to composed songs, poems, and music. Junior was also a great cook and it was evident on the grill. Junior was known for his famous ribs and special sauce.
Junior also enjoyed treating his loved ones; he was very generous. His gifts were never last-minute afterthoughts but carefully selected and held a deep symbolic meaning from the heart.
With his departure so much potential was taken. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and co-workers.
