Joseph Perez Gomez

Former Montrose Pastor

May 3, 1914 - Oct. 3, 1999

DENVER - Former Montrose resident, Joseph "Joe" Perez Gomez, age 85, of Denver and the former pastor of the Apsento Alto Assembly of God Church in Montrose, died of cancer Sunday morning, Oct. 3, 1999, at the Hospice of Metro Denver.

Joseph Perez Gomez was born in La Trinadad, Mexico on May 3, 1914, the son of Rosalio Gomez and Rosa Perez Gomez. At the age of 9, Joe moved with his family from Mexico to Lorado, Texas and shortly thereafter, when he was 12 years old his father died. The family moved to Northern Colorado and Joe received his education and grew to adulthood in the Weld County area. At the age of 17, Joe moved to Berthoud and attended the Four Square Bible College. He maintained a life-long interest in ministry.

While traveling and working in agriculture, Joe met Guadalupe Minjarez in Sugar City, Colo. After a long courtship, they were married on Aug. 19, 1936 in Fort Collins, Colo.

Joe and Guadalupe worked and lived in the northeastern area of Colorado and for a short time in Nebraska. They then moved to California to assist in the war effort by both becoming welders in the shipyards in the Los Angeles area.

After the war, Joe and Guadalupe returned to the Sugar City area in Colorado where they were engaged in farming. They eventually moved to the Greeley area where Joe started a blacksmith ship. In 1952, Joe started working for the Continental Oil Company where he remained until his retirement in 1965.

After he retired, Joe and Guadalupe moved to Montrose and Joe became the pastor of Apsento Alto Assembly of God Church. He continued his active ministry until the death of his beloved wife on Jan. 16, 1995, in Montrose.

Later in 1995, illness forced Joe to move from Montrose to Denver to be closer to his family where he remained until the time of his death.

The main focus, love, and joy of Joe's life was his family and his extended church family.

Survivors include one son, Ezekial Gomez and wife Maria Armida, of Denver; three daughters: Dina Gomez, of Aurora; Rosalie Hernandez, of Littleton; and Mary Ann and husband Isan Duran, of Arvada.

Joe was the proud and loving grandfather of 13 grandchildren, and the great-grandfather of 21 great-grandchildren.

Other family survivors include four brothers: Benjamin Gomez and Jess Gomez, both of Greeley; John Gomez, of California; Charles Gomez, of Denver; and three sisters: Isabel Chavarria, of Denver; Rose Garcia and Lia Hunt, both of California.

In addition to his parents and wife, Joe was also preceded in death by one sister.

Funeral Services in remembrance, to honor, and celebrate Joe's life will be officiated on Friday, Oct. 8, at 10 a.m. in the Greeley Assembly of God Church, 601 21st Ave., in Greeley.

Interment will follow the service in the Linwood Cemetery at Greeley, with arrangements being handled under the direction of Montrose Valley Funeral Home.
