Gilbert Joseph March

Gilbert Joseph March, 59, of Houston, was joined with his Heavenly Father on July 13, 2020.

Born on Nov. 29, 1960 to Edwin L. and Helen H. March in Coronado, he is survived by his mother Helen; sisters Trudy Watkins and Tracy (Donald) Ramm; brothers Edwin L. (Georgette) March II, James E. March, and Kim Allan March; nephews John D. (Sonia) Watkins, Andre’ Dehesa, and Charles J. Ramm; nieces Wendy Watkins (Jeff) McCollum, Natalie Dehesa (Tylor) Stutz, and Avia R.Ramm; four great-nieces and two great-nephews. His father Edwin Marc passed five weeks later.

Gilbert graduated from Coronado High School, class of 1978, and University of San Diego, where he majored and became proficient in Spanish and French. In high school, he played percussion in the band. At USD he was the coxswain on the crew team.

Gilbert enjoyed traveling and spent time living in Mexico, visiting the pyramids there, and perusing Australia. He was an avid bicyclist and loved all types of music, but country music best of all.

He was a resident of Austin, before moving to Houston. He was employed by Home Depot, after spending a number of years working for Pitney Bowes. He loved meeting and making new friends, always had a smile for everyone, and will be sorely missed by all his family and many, many friends.

I can't even begin to express my shock and sadness to find this. I will miss you so much, my friend!

Gilbert - you were a sweet and kind soul. I regret we lost contact but will always remember the many, many times you spent scraping layers of wallpaper from the 1920's on in the hallway of the house and the fun we had in San Antonio at my nieces wedding in 2004 - I am reassured that someday I will see that great smile again....
