Wilibaldo "Willy" Gonzalez

July 7, 1928 ~ February 20, 2021

Wilibaldo “Willy” Gonzalez passed away peacefully at his home in Midvale, UT on February 20, 2021. Our father was born July 7, 1928 in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico to Vincente Gonzalez and Dolores Ferreira. He married Maria Elena Ramirez, the love of his life.

The legacy our father left his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren is that of a simple life, endless generosity, and the joy of seeing his family together. He will be missed.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions and our father’s wishes, we will celebrate his life in Mexico at a later date. If you would like to share a story or condolence, please visit larkincares.com.

Your father was so sweet ! I had a hard time with knowing if it was him or his brother. So he always started the conversation como esta la familia de la Cruz and my puzzled face would go away knowing it was your dad and we would have a great conversation catching up . Your sweet parents sure raised a great family! So sorry for your lose from the de la Cruz and McCurdy families we love you💖 all lots and cherish your friendship.

Willy was a wonderful man. He was always kind to me and cared deeply for his family. He had a great work ethic and taught me a love for cooking. I still have the monarcas keychain and sombrero keychain that he brought back for me from Morelia. I will miss him dearly. Thank you Gonzalez family for sharing your father and grandfather with me and my family!
