Obituary

Gilbert Galvan passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 16, 2020, in San Antonio, Texas. He was born on August 1, 1921 in San Antonio to Jose M. Galvan & Concepcion C. Galvan, the eldest of four siblings. Gilbert served in the United States Army during WWII and subsequently retired from Civil Service at Kelly Air Force Base. Gilbert enjoyed playing in local soft-ball leagues, going on family weekend trips to the coast, going out to eat and looked forward to having dessert. He was a kind, quiet, and gentle man that didn't ask for much or need much; was just happy to be around his family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents and three sisters. Gilbert is survived by his loving wife, Lucy of 69 years and their daughters, Stella Gold and husband Todd; Alice Gold and husband Steve; grandchildren Cole Mirek, Grant Gold, Garrett Gold and wife Vanessa, Leslie Morales and husband Jon, Matthew Gold and great grandson Dylan Hernandez and Ryker Gold. He is also survived by his nieces and nephews, Diana Lopez, Elizabeth and David Willis, Beverly Johns, David Johns, Mark Silva, JoAnn Silva, Laura and Dennis Collins and Julie Williams.
