Francisco “Chico” González, 60, of Midland passed away on July 24, 2020 at Midland Memorial Hospital. He was born on April 2, 1960 in Presidio to Pablo González and his wife, Eva García González. Chico was his nickname and was used as a term of endearment since he was the youngest of 10 children.
He was a quiet and gentle man. He loved to joke with all his nieces and nephews who loved and respected him. He will be missed terribly by his family.
Chico was educated in Presidio schools and was a lifelong Catholic. For the past 20 years, he was employed by Midland Memorial Hospital.
He is survived by a daughter, Cynthia Ileen González, three grandchildren and a great-granddaughter, all of Greeley, Colorado.
Survivors also include two brothers, Dolores González of Presidio and Jose Luis González of Midland; and four sisters, Celina Baxter of Midland, Jesus Elena Muñoz, Socorro Espinosa and Teresa González Lujan, all of Odessa.
Chico was preceded in death by his father, Pablo Ramos González; mother, Eva G. González; two brothers, Justo González and Benjamin González (Teresa’s twin brother); and sister, Anna Maria González.
Graveside services were held on Tuesday, July 28 in Presidio with Father Mike Alcuino officiating.
Beautiful words and stories about his life were shared at the graveside by family members. Religious songs were played and sung by family members.
He will be greatly missed because he had a great and special presence about him. May he Rest in Peace.
