He was born in Edinburg, Texas, on Oct. 26, 1957. He moved with his family to Oregon when he was in his teens.

He was a barber by trade, but his true passion was being a Tejano musician. He led our local Tejano group Los Rebeldez for many years.

He is survived by his mother Benancia Gonzalez, his brothers: Mario Gonzalez, Javier Gonzalez and Gregorio Gonzalez. He is also survived by his children Sonia Cruz, Eleazar Gonzalez Jr., Gabriel Gonzalez and Ezra Constante-Gonzalez, as well as 10 grandchildren.

He will be deeply missed by all but we know that his spirit surrounds and protects us.
