Nov. 1994 ~ Jan. 2018
Eddie Fernando Gonzales Jr., a lover of life and beloved son, brother, nephew, cousin and grandson, was taken from us unexpectedly in a tragic auto accident on Jan. 3, 2018. He was 23.
To those who knew him, he was the life of the party and one of the most entertaining people to ever walk the Earth.
Eddie was born on November 1, 1994 in Turlock, CA where he spent his youth under the nickname “Chili.” At an early age he showed a natural talent for singing, dancing, and joke telling. He could dazzle a crowd with his dance moves. He could light up a room with his presence and always get the party going. His stories, jokes and comedic antics will always be remembered as some of his greatest moments.
He is survived by his mother, Olivia Ramirez of Turlock; father, Eddie Gonzales of Turlock; sister, Monique Gonzales of Turlock; brothers Ezekiel Ramirez and Jayleen Ramirez; fiance Salina Lopez; grandparents and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
