David Guerra, 84, passed away Friday, September 11, 2020. David was born in Gonzales County on December 31, 1935 to Ricardo Guerra and Maria Rios Guerra. He married Mary Jane Castro on July 11, 1959 in Gonzales. He was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church.

David was born on the Cannonade Ranch in Gonzales County. As a youth he worked with his family to grow produce that he would bring into town by horseback to sell. David had worked as a tow truck driver, an auto body technician, a foreman in the oil field, driver at Fehner Feed Store for nearly 10 years and worked nearly 20 years at Kaspar Wire Works in Shiner before working as the greenskeeper at Gonzales Independence Gold Course for nearly 15 years.

He loved the outdoors and keeping himself busy by tinkering with things. He enjoyed dancing with his wife and spending quality with his family. David was always willing to set his own projects aside to help others in need. He always had a welcoming smile and his good heart endeared him to all who knew him. He led his family with love, his faith, and work ethic and the greatest of these was love.

David Guerra is survived by his adoring family, wife of 61 years, Mary J. Guerra of Gonzales, daughters, Rita Ann Guerra “Arturo Ruiz” of Waelder, Viviana Gallegos “Eric” of Gonzales, son, Rogelio Guerra “Vicky” of Gonzales, sister, Connie Arellano of Ft.
