Minervo Alvarado Obituary

Minervo Gomez Alvarado, a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, passed away on February 4, 2024, in Lakeland, Florida, at the age of 53. Born on October 18, 1970, in Mexico, Minervo's life was a testament to his faith, love, and gentle spirit.

Minervo was raised alongside his 12 brothers and sisters by their late mother, Ofrencina Rodriguez Alvarado. He met and married the love of his life, Virgilia Antunez Nolasco and their partnership of 33 years was blessed with six children: Yesica Gomez Antunez (Jose), Jasmin Gomez Antunez (Pablo), Ixell Gomez Antunez, Jesus Gomez Antunez, and Abraham Gomez Antunez. Although they faced the heartbreaking loss of their son, Ezekial Gomez Antunez, the strength and unity of their family never wavered. He leaves behind his grandchildren, Aiden, Zaira, Joziah, Angelique Yarel, Kailani Denise, Pablo Jr., Khalett Ezekiel, and Amara. Each of them brought immense joy and pride to his life, and he cherished every moment spent with them.

Minervo dedicated himself to his work as a landscaper, where his hard work was evident in the beauty he created. His enthusiasm extended beyond his work to his personal love for working and gardening in his own yard. Minervo's faith was the cornerstone of his life. He was a devoted member of St. Clements Catholic Church in Plant City, where he actively participated in the church community. His involvement with Grupo Matrimonial (MDS) was a source of spiritual growth in marriage and fellowship, reflecting his commitment to his faith and his desire to serve others. A romantic at heart, Minervo loved to dance. He loved his wife and his family. He thoroughly enjoyed boating and camping and was always eager to create lasting memories with his family and friends. There is comfort in knowing that Minervo's love, faith and teachings will live on through the generations, and his legacy will be a light for all who follow. May he rest in peace, knowing that his life was a beautiful reflection of the values he held dear.
