Sept. 8, 1949 — April 7, 2014

Jamie Arturo Gonzalez went to his heavenly home on Monday, April 7, 2014.

He was born in Mexico on Sept. 8, 1949, to Isidro Perfecto and Maria de Lourdes Gonzalez.

He was a dedicated 20-year United States Air Force veteran and retired as a Master Sergeant. He won every award that could be won, with the exception of one, while serving at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, Calif. He loved his country and was proud to serve.

He was a Christian and his greatest joy was serving the Lord as he was involved in many ministries in his life. While he was unable to attend church, he watched television ministry on Sunday morning, along with Internet sermons. He talked of being a minister and he was ministering to many people in his 51 days in the hospital at Alta Bates in Berkeley.

He is survived by his wife, Mary Jo Gonzalez; children, Alicia A. Gonzalez (Jason) and Loraine N. Meek (Nate); grandchildren, Dylan, Landon and Gavin Murrell, Austin, Lana, and Aviah Meek; brothers, Isidro “Junior” Gonzalez and Roberto Gonzalez; sisters, Lucy Leyva and Gabriela Lucero (Jake); and numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends.

Mr. Gonzalez was preceded in death by his father, Isidro Perfecto, and his mother, Maria de Lourdes Gonzalez.

The family would like to thank Dr. Behl and the staff of the cancer center in Berkeley and Alta Bates Medical Center in Berkeley for their kindness and compassion during his illness.

A memorial service will be at 2 p.m. Friday, April 11, 2014, at Bryan-Braker Funeral Home, 1850 W. Texas St., Fairfield, Calif., 94533.

In lieu of flowers the family requests a donation to St Jude’s Children’s Hospital or a charity of your choice.

Arrangements under the care of Bryan-Braker, www.bryanbraker.com.

    Even though we are going to miss you so much I'm so happy you are no longer in pain & suffering. You get to be with our creator, Jesus and are reunited with Tati & Abuelito. We will see you again one day in heaven. Love you so much.

    I am sadden to hear about the loss of this very kind sweet friendly man that I had the honor to meet a few years ago. He was always friendly and pleasant every time he would shop/browse at Goodwill. He was what I would consider my favorite customer. I just recently thought of him and Mary Jo and was hoping everything was ok and that they were doing fine, little did I know I would find out too late that my friend had passed. I send my deepest condolences to his family. He will definitely be missed by his Goodwill friends he met along the way.
