My name is Juan Estrada and on November 1st, my brother Gilbert Estrada passed away from a tragic accident he sustained while celebrating halloween at West Hollywood's Halloween Carnaval. His costume went up in flames due to an accident and he suffered severe burns to his upper body including his face. He was transported to Cedar-Sinai on October 31st where the following morning he succumbed to his injuries and passed away. We are asking the community for help so we can provide a proper funeral and burial for him.
Gilbert was a caring and loving individual. He was a Son, Brother and Friend to all who got to know him well through his reserved and respectable personality. He loved his family and always tried to help them when times were difficult. He was very passionate about animals and volunteered at various animal shelters. His beloved dogs, Chiquita, Panchito and Papa were a huge part of his life and he adored them.
He also served as a volunteer for APLA, and was very dedicated in helping his community. The great outdoors was a second home to him and he was very concerned about our environment and protecting it for all future generations.
For those of us that were in his life, we will always remember him fondly through his warm and kind gestures. Gilbert will be truly missed by his family and friends.
