Paul was born on August 23, 1961 in Lubbock, Texas. Paul’s greatest love in life was caring for and sharing his life with his wife and twin sons. He was a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan and he loved golfing. Paul had a huge smile that was contagious, and he had a great sense of humor. Paul was a brave and courageous man and fought Renal Carcinoma for 7 years. He never gave up hope, never complained, and accepted God’s will. Paul said many times that he would fight this cancer head on and never let it take away his dignity nor his pride. He was a very faithful man, and he knew the Lord was with him every step of the way.
Paul worked at Lubbock Electric for 28 years and had an extended family there.
Those left to cherish his memory are his wife, Kathi Gonzalez; sons, Ethan and Eric Gonzalez; his mother, Anita Gonzalez; sisters, Toni Ybarra and Terri Krumwiede; brother-in-law, Don Krumwiede; sister-in-law, Kristi Goswick, and many nieces and nephews
In heaven, he joined his father, Andrew Gonzalez Jr.; his brother Michael Edward Gonzalez; his brother-in-law, Mike Ybarra; his mother-in-law, Clara Goswick; his father-in-law, James Goswick; his niece, Karter Salazar, and more than likely a bunch of Dallas Cowboys fans.
Paul has taught us all to be courageous, kind, loving, forgiving, and to cherish life and loved ones.
