Julian Gomez, Jr.

Julian Gomez, Jr. (71) of Texas City, Texas, passed away on Saturday, January 22, 2022. He was born in Texas City on October 30, 1950 to Mary and Julian Gomez.  He proudly served in the United States Air Force.

First and foremost, Julian was devoted to his wife and children. He was calm, even tempered and selfless, and he would never hesitate to drop everything to help and support them. He was always telling jokes and loved nothing more than to make people laugh.  Julian was a talented photographer and spent much of his free time taking photos and editing them on his computer.  He was also good with technology and enjoyed building computers for himself and members of his family. Julian’s intelligence, humor and selflessness were a delight to his family and friends, and he will be dearly missed. Julian worked for BP as an Operator for over 40 years.

Julian is preceded in death by his mother and father; sister, Anna Gomez; and daughter, Faith Gomez. He is survived by his wife of 18 years Christina Gomez;  daughters, Marielle Gomez and Gillian Wilson; sons, Thomas Gomez, David Wilson, Johnathan Wilson, and Benjamin Gomez; sisters, Bertilda Gomez, and Francis Sandoval (Tim Nichols); brothers, Nick Rendon (Frances), Victor Gomez (Cynthia), Louis Gomez (Rhonda); and numerous nieces and nephews.

A memorial visitation will be held from 6:00pm – 8:00pm on Monday, February 7, 2022 with the memorial service at 7:00pm at the James Crowder Funeral Home, La Marque with Rev. Johnny Angel officiating.   An interment of ashes will be held at the Houston National Cemetery on Tuesday, February 8, 2022 at 11:15am.


  1. We are so sad to hear this sad news. I remember Julian more when we were younger with small kids in church together. He was always with his camera. Our Sunday school class went camping one weekend. Our nephew went with us and asked who that Japanese guy was that followed us around taking pictures, lol! He was always kind and ready to listen. Rest In Peace.

  4. Julian was my boyhood friend in Texas City. I lived on Bay Street. We were friends at Danforth Elementary. Later, Blocker Jr. High and Texas City High. Always walked to school in those days sharing stories growing up and dreaming what we would pursue after High School. I left Texas City and followed my career and now live in El Paso Tx. Julian was very smart and serious. I have fond memories of him as my best friend during those years. I lost contact and tried getting in touch with him on Face Book these past few years and no results. I will always remember him and hope to catch up with him someday and share stories once again.

  5. I give my respect to Julian’s wife and so sorry for her loss. I had so many fond memories of us, two Mexican boys growing up in Texas City in the 50’s, 60’s… We bravely signed up for the Blocker Jr. High School tennis team thinking that we would be instructed to play.. we even bought our Pancho Gonzalez tennis rackets .. we were disappointed that we were not accepted on the team. Coach told us to practice hitting the balls on the outdoor gym wall . Piece of Sh.t. We were always talking about the fact we were different from our classmates….. he had a sketch pad all the time and drawing… I left Texas City and pursued my career as a ballet dancer… had a successful career. But I always thought of Julian as my boyhood friend. We always talked about where we would be someday in the future.. would we be successful, had a family, be famous, or just end up having a nice life. He was rewarded in God’s eyes.
