Obituary

Alberto Gonzales departed this earthly life on March 1st 2022 due to natural causes. Alberto was born on July 26th 1940 to Ester Trevino and Dad Benito Trevino Sr. in San Benito, Texas. Alberto was a devoted and loving Father, Grandfather, Great-grandfather, Brother, Uncle and Friend.

Alberto worked for 32 years at General Motors and retired April 1st 2000. Alberto was known as a dedicated, faithful Christian and servant to the Lord Jesus Christ. He witnessed to many throughout his lifetime and brought them to salvation. He was a passionate and talented musician. Playing the accordion and singing was his favorite pastime. Alberto was kind, generous and loved to make people laugh. No matter what the situation was in life, he would crack a joke and find the humor even at life’s darkest moments. No one could have said it better... “Guess what?.... Jesus loves you, and so do I”.

Alberto leaves his loving wife of 60 years Petra Gonzales, his daughters Sandra (Colin) Fite and Yvonne Gonzales, his granddaughters Erika Hamm, Brittney Zipfel and Adrienne Hamm, great-grandchildren Kylee Zipfel, Jonathan Vannier, Scarlett Vannier and Kevin Albert Hamm, and his siblings Velva Berlanga, Yolanda Chapa, Dalia T.
