Obituary

Rogelio "Roy" Gomez, age 39, of Whiting IN passed away Friday, December 31, 2021. Roy is survived by his wife: Jesenia Gomez; 4 children: Arianna Paine, Elena Paine, Sebastian Gomez, and Natalya Gomez; parents: Rogelio Gomez and Gregoria Gomez; father-in-law, Alex Santana; 4 sisters: Daniella (Humberto) Gutierrez, Jazmin (Francisco) Gomez-Salas, Barbara Gomez, and Elizabeth Gomez; 2 Brothers: Orlando Ellis, and Mauricio Ellis; 4 nieces: Sophia Gutierrez, Vivian Gutierrez, Valentina Salas, and Leonora Cortes; 4 nephews Frankie Salas, Fabian Salas, Jordan Salas, and Oliver Gutierrez; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He is preceded in death by his grandparents: Aurelio Alba, Felicita Barboza, and Zenaida Arellano; cousin: Daniel Soto; mother-in-law: Zaida Santana; and a few good friends.


Roy was a loving husband, father, son, brother, and friend. He loved his family so much and did anything to make sure they were taken care of. He was present in every way possible to show his support for the people that he loved most. He made friends almost anywhere he went and had the biggest heart. He was a protector, jokester, the best story teller, and loved to laugh at everything. He loved his lowrider and spending time at meets with his fellow USO Lowrider Car Club Members. He took pride in being a truck driver and would frequently video call home to check on his family. He loved to sing songs by Vicente Fernadez and drink Modelos with his older children. A Chicago fan through and through, he cheered on the Chicago Bulls, Chicago Bears, but most importantly, the White Sox. He enjoyed food with friends and family, and cooked his favorite meals for them. Roy had the best advice, and would always be open to listen or give you a shoulder to cry on. He gave the warmest hugs and sweetest kisses, he was a true gentle giant. To know Roy was to love him.
