Luis Carlos Gutierrez Rojo

Sunrise: November 4, 1967

Sunset: June 5, 2020


La vida lo llevo por diversos caminos. Se fue de Guadalajara con rumbo a California con tan solo 22 años, lleno de sueños y promesas por cumplir.  Dios le dio grandes alegrias como lo son sus hijos, de quien platicaba cada paso y cada logro que realizaban, los presumia con mucho orgullo.


Luis Carlos Gutierrez Rojo fue un hombre que supo enamorar muchas mujeres siempre lleno de detalles y de bromas que a cualquiera lograba hacer reir. Le gustaba la fiesta y el futbol su equipo favorito era el america, le aposionaba el box disfrutaba una buena pelea al igual que cocinar. Un orgulloso Jaliciense que dios decidio llamar a su lado el 05 Junio del 2020.


Nos dejo con la promesa de pagarnos mucos abrazos y besos que por la distancia no podiamos recibir, pero con la fue que hoy descanza en paz a lado de su esposa, sus padres y hermanos asi como toda las personas que se nos adelantaron.  Confiamos en que dios un dia nos reunira a su lado.
