On October 5, 2015 our lives were forever changed as we lost a beloved son, brother, father, husband, uncle, brother-in-law, son-in-law and friend to many. David Gonzalez, also known as Davy, was born in Exeter, CA on May 27, 1958 to his loving parents Guadalupe and Jenny Rose (Rosie) Gonzalez. He is survived by three sisters Elena Gomez (Tranq), Cathy Rodarte and Angie Gonzalez Marques (Mario) and three brothers Lupe Gonzalez, Jr. (Reina), Mark Gonzalez (Dolores) and Armando Gonzalez (Tanya). To cherish in his memory is his loving wife Peggy Covert Gonzalez and most-loved son David (Davy) Gonzalez, Jr. He was loved and adored by Peggy’s family especially beloved granddaughter Carrieann Hankins. Davy was blessed with nieces Cristina Caldwell (Tom), Micaela Coffman (Terry), Georgia Bernal, Katrina Gonzalez, Jasmine Gonzalez, Serena Gonzalez and Lexi Gonzalez. His surviving nephews include Alejandro Gomez, Buddy Gonzalez (Tina), Joaquin Rodarte, Nicolas Rodarte, and Armando Gonzalez Jr.
Davy graduated from Exeter High School, College of the Sequoias and attended Fresno State.
While working for Land O’ Lakes in Tulare for over twenty-six years, Davy made many life-long friends. They were an important part of his work life. Davy was an avid, die-hard Green Bay Packers fan and proudly displayed his love and pride for his team on his prosthetic leg for all to see. His closet full of Green Bay Packer jerseys and t-shirts made up his daily attire. Although he wasn’t able to attend many Green Bay Packer games we find comfort and joy knowing Davy has life-time season tickets getting the best seat in the house. The great mountain outdoors was Davy’s playground. He loved fishing, hunting, camping and four-wheeling. Watching an episode of the Three Stooges always got Davy roaring with laughter. He had a great appetite for well-prepared seafood, fish and chips and just about any type of BBQ. He also couldn’t resist a delectable dessert. A few beers and a great laugh with the guys was a must!
Davy made friends everywhere he went – especially with cats and dogs. He had a soft spot in his heart for furry friends. As a kid, dogs frequently followed him home from school and even as an adult he couldn’t resist taking in a stray starving cat. They usually ended up staying with him permanently. He loved them and they loved him.
Davy, you will forever be in our hearts no matter where we are and at every family get together and holiday know you will be missed. Thank you for loving all of us in your special and most unique way. Go Green Bay!!
Our family wishes to thank the employees from Land O’ Lakes for loving our brother and being his loyal friends for so many years.

God got a GREAT addition in heaven! Our family loved Dave and he was one of the sweetest guys to be around. He was the BEST cook and could barbeque like no other! Dave loved cooking and made sure that everyone was having a good time. He always had a smile on his face and was happy to just be relaxing and laughing. We had some great times up at the cabin in Shaver Lake. We were trying to plan a weekend for the family to all get together again. Dave was the master chef and had the next barbeque in Shaver all planned. We just ran out of time, not knowing that Dave's time here would be shorter than we ever imagined. I wish so much that we could have had more time. We all loved Dave and will miss him so very much. Peggy, Dave would want you to be strong and he will forever be with you. He is with you every day, just like God is. Keep your faith. Dave was one in a million. Sure gonna miss him. Our prayers go to you, little Davey, and Dave's family. We love you and our prayers are with you always.
