Enrique R. Gutierrez, Sr., age 74, passed away August 23, 2017 surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Mexico to the late Ignacio and Manuela (Rodriquez) Gutierrez. He married the love of his life, Adela Gomez Gutierrez, on May 2, 1965 at St. Ann Catholic Church in Kaufman, Tx. Enrique and Adela were blessed with four children, seventeen grandchildren and six great grandchildren. A very outgoing and friendly person, Enrique was known by many and loved by all. He always had a smile on his face and he never met a stranger. Enrique had a love for music and will be remembered by many for his beautiful voice and playing the guitar. When your birthday rolled around, you knew to expect that phone call from Enrique singing “happy birthday to you”. Enrique loved anything outdoors, whether it was camping, working in the yard or tending to his vegetable garden. His greatest love, however, was spending time with his family. Enrique could spend hours entertaining his grandchildren with rides on the tractor and golf cart. Enrique will be greatly missed but never forgotten!

Enrique was preceded in death by his parents, Ignacio and Manuela Gutierrez; one sister, Maria Gutierrez; and two brothers, Roberto and Juan Gutierrez. Survivors include his loving wife of 52 years, Adela Gutierrez; children, Enrique Gutierrez, Jr and wife Tresa of Terrell, Sylvia Alvizo and husband Juan of Garland, Blanca Gutierrez and husband Juan of Terrell and Christina Lee and husband Richard of Terrell; sister, Anita Hernandez; brothers, Jose and Jesus Gutierrez; seventeen grandchildren, Alexander, Andrew, Ricky, Kevin, Clint, Jennifer, Johnny, Crystal, Jessica Mia, Natalia, Dominique, Samuel, Abraham, Ethan, Anthony, Alexis and Richard; and six great grandchildren, Faith, Andrew Jr., Julian, Leila, Elvis and Joseph.
