FuneralExpenses for Rigoberto Gomez

I am the daughter in law of Rigoberto Gomez.

Rigoberto Gomez, loving and devoted husband, father, brother, and friend, has departed to his eternal resting home to join his son, Rigoberto Junior. He leaves behind his wife, nine children, seven grandchildren, and a throng of extended family members and friends. He will be immensely missed by those he loved and lives he touched. 

Since his youth, Rigoberto enjoyed playing baseball. He played it in his motherland, Mexico, and continued playing in leagues once he migrated to America. He played on many national and international leagues and numerous tournaments, with his children and wife cheering him on from the stands. Whenever baseball season came around you could find him watching the games on the television set, if not on the bleachers.Though being a United States citizen, once retired he planned to move back to Mexico with his wife and whichever of his children decided to follow lead.

On September 1st, Rigoberto left his home to compete with his international baseball team in Sonora, Mexico. Instead of pitching, the way he normally did, he decided to sit this game out because of chest pains he was having.  After the game he and fellow teammates checked into a hotel for the night. Rigoberto, unfortunately, did not make it out of the room. Possible cause of death is presumed to be a heart attack.

The funds raised will be used to cover all the funeral expenses including the transportation of his body from Mexico back into America, where he will be laid to rest with his son, Rigoberto Junior. Any contributions made will help the goal be met. Rigoberto Gomez' immediate family will be in charge of the final expenses. Thank you all for your time and support. God bless you all.

Love you all <3
