     Gregorio was born in Cuquio, Jalisco, Mexico on May 25, 1936 to Ramon Gonzalez and Paula Gonzalez Pinto.  He was one of seven children.  Gregorio was raised in Jalisco and Gto.

     He married Margarita Juarez and together with three young children he moved to Mexicali San Victoria where they built a family home.  The family continued to grow and grow, adding seven more children.  The family worked together in all they did.

     Gregorio was a farmer and spent his days cultivating the fields and planting crops.  Family and the Lord remained his number one priority.  When he wasn’t working, he was hunting or fishing providing for his wife and children.

     Gregorio was offered an opportunity to come and work in the United States – Paul, Idaho was his destination.  He worked in agriculture as a laborer, long days and hard work in the sun.

     A few years passed and Gregorio returned to Mexico to tell of his adventures in this new land and all the opportunities to be had.  The land of opportunity called and along came the Gonzalez family.

     Gregorio returned to the U.S. this time his destination was Washington State.  He was joined by his oldest son and eventually a few daughters.  They worked in the orchards, harvesting apples, cherries and what ever else was in season.  They had many adventures together, following the harvest seasons.  The family eventually returned to Idaho.

     In 1979 the Gonzalez’s settled in Wendell, Idaho.  The family continued to grow.  Now the kids were grown and married and Gregorio’s grandchildren were his pride and joy.  He spent every moment he could teaching and spoiling his grandchildren.  Trips to Jackpot were his favorite.  He was a very social man, offering help to others every chance he could.  He enjoyed playing pranks and joking around.

     Gregorio never faced a challenge with out the Lord by his side.  His faith remained strong until the very end.  This legacy will live on in all his family.

     Gregorio is survived by: his wife, Margarita Juarez de Gonzalez; his daughters, Consuelo Gonzalez de Gonzalez, Gloria Gonzalez de Lara, Maria Elena Geiger, Olga Gonzalez, Leticia Jimenez and Silva Orozco; his sons, Ramon Gonzalez, Pablo Gonzalez and Gregorio Gonzalez, Jr.; and many grand and great grandchildren.

     He was preceded in death by his brothers, his sister and son, Ramiro.

 

 

Dios recibió en su gloria el alma del señor Gregorio González Pinto el 2 de Enero 2019, en Gooding, Idaho acompañado de su amada familia.

Se casó con Margarita Juárez y junto con sus tres hijos pequeños se mudaron a Mexicali, Baja California, Guadalupe Victoria km 43, donde construyeron su hogar familiar. La familia continuó creciendo y creciendo, agregando siete hijos más. La familia trabajaba junta en todo lo que hacian.

Gregorio era agricultor y pasó sus dias cultivando y sembrando los campos. Su familia y dios seguian siendo su prioridad. Cuando trabajaba, estaba cazando o pescando, alimentando a su esposa e hijos.

Surgió una oportunidad, le ofrecieron a Gregorio trabajar en los Estados Unidos. Paul, Idaho era su destino. Trabajó en la agricultura como jornalero con largos dias y mucho trabajo al sol.Unos años después, Gregorio regresó a México para contar sus aventuras en esta nueva tierra y todas las oportunidades que se pueden tener. La tierra de la oportunidad llamó y llegó la familia González.

Gregorio regresó a los Estados Unidos, pero esta vez su destino era el estado de Washington. Se le unió su hijo mayor y algunas hijas. Trabajaron en los huertos, cosechando manzanas, cerezas y todo lo que fuera de temporada. Tenian muchas aventuras juntos. Después de las temporadas de cosecha, la familia finalmente regresó a Idaho.

En 1979 los González se establecieron en Wendell, Idaho. La familia siguió creciendo. Ahora sus hijos habian crecido y estaban casados y sus nietos eran su orgullo y alegria. Pasó cada momento que pudo enseñando y mimando a sus nietos. Los viajes largos a Jackpot eran sus favoritos. Era un hombre muy social, que ofrecia ayuda a los demás cada vez que podia. Le gustaba jugar y bromear.

Gregorio nunca se enfrentó a un desafio sin dios a su lado. Su fe se mantuvo fuerte hasta el final. Este legado vivirá en toda su familia Gonzalez.
