Gonzalez. Louis was a graduate of Lely High School in Naples, FL. During the years Louis could work he was a carpenter for A. Vernon Allen. When his illness progressed he stayed at home and helped raise his two beautiful children. He was thoroughly loved by all who knew him. He was always there if someone needed a hug or smile. He loved his life right up until the end. One of his most joyful things in his life were his children Emelina and Matthew ages 12 and 9. Louis met his wife Beth in 1991 and they married October 24th, 1993, this year would have been their 27th anniversary.

He was preceded in death by his grandfather James "Pipo" Ebanks, his father Victor Manuel Gonzalez and his Mother-in-Law Sarah Elizabeth West. Surviving is his wife of 26 years Beth L. Gonzalez, his beautiful daughter Emelina Catherine Gonzalez, and his handsome son Matthew Louis Gonzalez. His grandmother Emelina Ebanks, his mother Dorcas M. Ebanks, and sisters Maria Gonzalez Damaso, and Marisol Gonzalez. Father-in-Law Paul D. Laursen husband of Joyce Laursen.  Father-in-Law Terrance West, Sister-in-laws Heather West Billy wife of David Billy, Angela Thom wife of John D. Thom, Audra Laursen, Heather Kinsel wife of Ed McMahan. Many nieces and nephews Veronica, Vanezza, Victor, Dulian, Angelina, Joey, Austin, Andrew, Sydney, Connor, Evan, Jillan, and James. Aunts and Uncles Dennis Ebanks husband of Lupe Ebanks, Marcos Ebanks husband of Rosi Ebanks, Emilia Tibbetts wife of Steve Tibbetts, and Armando Ebanks husband of Evadne Ebanks. And his kickass brother/cousin Carl Hydes of Naples, who in many respects is an Uncle to our children. Louis also had many more Aunts, Uncles, and cousins in the Cayman Islands and Cuba. As well as too many friends to even begin to name.

To know Louis was to love him. He was an amazing father to his children and husband to me. Louie was the love of my life. Not a day goes by we haven't mourned his loss so deeply. Our children and I will never be the same. I can not imagine a life without hearing his sweet laugh and seeing his tender smile which he was always willing to give to us everyday even though he was always in so much pain for so many years.

We will always have you in our hearts Papi and will love and miss you forever.
