Guadalupe Gomez-Nila, age 60, last saw the Arizona daylight on Friday, February 5, 2016. He is survived by his loving wife, Petra, 8 children, 27 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Lupe, as he was known, had been working on the fields for the past 20 years. Besides being a great and dedicated employee, he was an amazing and devoted husband, father and grandfather. To the grandkids and great-grandkids he was known as Tata. Always smiling, happy and very friendly, not only to his family, which he loved, but to everyone who crossed his way: friends, neighbors and the community.
Lupe always loved to sing, whistle and dance with his children when they were small, then it was the grandchildren and the great-grandchildren. He liked to spend time with everyone. He made sure they all gathered together in harmony. To his family, he was the center of attention. Gatherings were planned around his schedule. Lupe left a piece of him in every single person in his life. His legacy will be passed on to the following generations. Lupe will forever be loved and remembered.
