Gilbert Valenzuela Guerra

August 12, 1939 — October 10, 2023


Gilbert "Wero" Valenzuela Guerra, a man known for his kindness, welcoming nature, and hard work, has passed away at the age of 84 on October 10, 2023, in his hometown of Tucson, Arizona. He leaves behind a rich legacy of love and devotion as a husband, father, and friend.

Born on August 12, 1939, in Tucson, AZ, Gilbert spent his formative years surrounded by the vibrant culture and warm community of his birthplace. Throughout his life, he embodied the values that define Tucson: a strong sense of family ties, resilience in the face of adversity, and a genuine connection with others.

Gilbert was a loving and dedicated husband to his wife Helen for an admirable 42 years. Their bond was a shining example of commitment and unwavering support through life's ups and downs. Gilbert's devotion to Helen served as an inspiration to all who knew them.

In addition to his role as a devoted husband, Gilbert embraced the joys of parenthood wholeheartedly. His children Valerie, Rebecca, Veronica, Beatrice, and Manuel were the center of his world. He showered them with love and guidance throughout their lives. Gilbert's compassion and nurturing spirit shaped each of his children into the remarkable individuals they are today.

Gilbert expanded his loving family further as he welcomed stepchildren Frances, Sandra, Gerard, Steve, and Christy into his life. He embraced them with open arms and treated them as if they were his own. The love he shared with his stepchildren created a bond that brought immeasurable joy to Gilbert's life.

The Mass will commence at 11:00 AM, offering an opportunity for family, friends, and loved ones to gather together and pay their respects to this remarkable individual. Following the Mass, a burial will take place at Holy Hope Cemetery at 12:30 PM. This final act of farewell will allow those touched by Gilbert's presence to find peace and closure.
