Gustavo Espinosa

June 6, 1970 ~ June 11, 2021 (age 51)


In Memory of Gustavo Edmundo Espinosa, Jr.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, on June 6, 1970, to Eulogia and Gustavo Edmundo Espinosa.  He carried himself as a devoted son, brother, father and most recently grandfather.  He enjoyed being with his family and took pride in his sons.  

He spent his childhood carefree, playing and laughing with his sisters, cousins and childhood friends.  As a young adult he achieved his proudest moment and became a father.  From that day forward he found his true calling in life, being a dad.  He worked hard to take care of his family and provided everything he could for them.  

Gus loved the holidays and all family gatherings.  He was a big part of the family and always the center of attention.  Telling stories, cooking, dancing, listening to music and always making people laugh creating memories that will live on forever.  

His loving spirit warmed our hearts as he cared for everyone else more than himself.  We mourn the loss of this wonderful family man who greatly touched all our lives; but we rejoice in him being at peace.  

Gustavo is survived by loving mother Eulogia, father Gustavo Edmundo Sr., sons Alexander, Brandon, and Matthew, sisters Judith, Dolores and Evelyn, granddaughters Leah Maya and Selena Rose and loving nieces and nephews.

We love you.  Until we meet again.


I'm Free

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free. .I’m following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I’ve savored much.
Good Friends, good times,
a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me…
God wanted me now,
He set me free
