Mr. Eduardo Gomez, 67, of Beeville passed away on Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2020, at home surrounded by his wife and family.
Eddie was born on March 23, 1953, in Beeville to Aurora Vidaurri and Jesus Gomez Jr. He married Janie Aleman on June 24, 1972, at St. James Parish in Beeville. He graduated from A.C.

Mr. Gomez believed in God, family, and work, in that order. His faith in God was very deep.
Mr. Gomez also loved his many years spent at the Bee-Picayune, enjoying conversations with fellow employees and, occasionally as a young man, a beverage with some after work. He also enjoyed reading the news and critiquing the quality of the print. He would be so mad if it was not straight or if the craftmanship was off in any manner. Mr. Gomez spoke highly of working for Publisher Fred C. Latcham Jr., adding what a great man he was. He also really enjoyed the company picnics.
Mr. Gomez was preceded in death by his mother, Aurora V. Gomez, his father, Jesus Gomez Jr., and a brother, Juan Gabriel Gomez, all of Beeville.
