Gilbert Valenzuela Memorial Fund

$9,942 of $11,000 goal

Raised by 152 people in 14 months
As you may already know, we have suffered a tremendous loss this week. Gilbert Valenzuela Jr was a beloved son, brother, and friend to many. He will be greatly missed not only by his friends and family but the community as a whole. Gilbert was a kind, loving person who shared his love with everyone. His positive attitude and his infectious smile drew the attention of anyone who met him. 

We have created this account on behalf the family to help with the funeral expenses and make things a little easier. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, any donations are welcome.

Gilbert has spent several years volunteering his time to charities and people in need; let us return the favor. We will be updating this page in conjunction with the family as often as possible. 
 
Thank you.

Thank you all so much for your generous support and love for Gilbert Valenzuela. At this time I would like to update you with details regarding the GoFundMe for his memorial and other family expenses relating to his sudden passing.

My name is Jeremy Lucido, a friend of Gilbert's. We've traveled together, worked on a photo shoot and fundraisers, he was my partner on the AIDS/LifeCycle ride, and we've shared countless Tecates together. With the help of our bestie Pretty David (Perez), I created this fundraiser to raise money for the family of Gilbert Valenzuela. We are in contact with his sister,
Vallery Goytia who is planning and organizing his memorial service. His brother Anthony Child Goytia is also helping.

The Family of Gilbert Valenzuela would like to invite all to join us in celebrating his life on:

Friday Evening, May 18th @ 5pm-9pm
Guerra-Gutierrez Mortuary
5800 E Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90022

Everyone hates me because I'm so pretty
