Baleriano Gaona, Sr.

July 17, 1954 - November 21, 2020

Baleriano  Gaona, Sr.On Saturday, November 21, 2020, Baleriano Gaona Sr. passed unexpectedly. He follows his dad, and beloved wife into the heavens, leaving behind his mom, brothers, sisters, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, his former spouse and close family friends, as well as numerous family and friends who mourn his passing.

Most of all, he leaves behind a legacy of love. He lived his life in a way that taught his children the important things in life. The love of the simple things, such as a good movie, good meal, or simply doing a puzzle. The love of music, be it strumming a guitar, attending concerts, collecting albums, and passing on an appreciation of great musicians. Finally, and most importantly, the love of family unity. He leaves behind children that know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he loved them and was proud of them. Brothers and sisters, cousins, in laws, former in laws, grandkids, and friends who have a lifetime of memories.

It is difficult to accept that such a great man passed so early in life but take comfort in knowing that though gone in body, he will remain in spirit, in all the lives he has touched. We invite all who wish to, to say a prayer for the family for comfort and peace during this difficult time. PS Go Blazers <3

Services will be held at a later date, when safe.
