EDINBURG - Gilberto Villarreal, 90, entered eternal rest Friday, October 25, 2019, at Amara Hospice Inpatient Facility in Edinburg.
Born in San Manuel, Mr. Villarreal lived in Edinburg and was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church. He served honorably in the United States Army. A loving husband and father who lit up a room with his smile and that glint in his eyes. He was the life of the party and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He has now joined his family and fishing buddies in search of the big red.
Gilberto is preceded in death by his parents, Arnulfo and Maria Zamora Villarreal; a brother, Everto Villarreal; and four sisters, Lilia Rutledge, Delia Villegas, Emma Vela, and Celia Caceres.

The family would like to thank his hospice caregiver, Jose Salinas; Cima and Amara Hospice Staff; and Mateo Solis for his gracious friendship with Gilbert.
