Eusebio V. Gomez Jr., a resident of San Marcos, was released from his earthly bonds and escorted by the angels to be with our Father in Heaven on Feb. 18, 2013 at the age of 49.
Born May 25, 1963 in Lockhart, he was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle. He is preceded in death by his father Eusebio Gomez Sr.
Our father was a caring and loving man. Respect and family meant everything to him. Anyone who knew him knew he was the hardest worker. He loved his Oakland Raiders and never missed a game. He enjoyed barbecues, going to the river and spending time with family. Eusebio will be truly missed but not forgotten in our hearts.
