Gabriel was born on May 14, 1991 in Monahans, TX to Gabriel F. Lara & Lorina O. Bejarano. Gabriel was a very lovable, comedic, hardworking and a humble man. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends and having cookouts. He was always dependable and was there to lend a helping hand, no matter the situation. He enjoyed working on his trucks and was the biggest Dallas Cowboys fan. He had the biggest heart and his family was a big part of his life. There was not a moment that he didn’t make us laugh. We are lucky to have had him in our lives and he will always be missed. His memories will forever live in our hearts.
Gabriel is survived by his mother Lorina O. Bejarano, siblings Lisa B.Vasquez, Cassandra B. Coleman, brothers-in-law, Jose L. Salinas, Kalil O. Coleman, niece/nephew Natalia Ruiz, Nathaniel L. Salinas, grandparents, Luis Q. Bejarano Sr., and Virginia O. Bejarano.
The family would like to express their gratitude towards Midland Memorial Hospital, hospital staff and Junction Fuels, LLC.
