Luis Fernando “Freddy” Gomez
On Friday, November 13, 2020 Luis Fernando “Freddy” Gomez was called to his eternity with our Heavenly Father. Freddy was born May 5, 1943 in the small town of Salamina, Colombia, South America. He moved to New York City in 1964 when he was 21 years old and proudly became a US Citizen. He later moved to Melbourne, FL in 1969. He worked many occupations and was known as a “jack of all trades” including running a carpet cleaning business as well as supervising a custodial team at Harris Semiconductors; this led him to an exciting career at Kennedy Space Center. He enjoyed 26 years at United Space Alliance in the Logistics Division. He met and married the love of his life, Ann Willis Gomez, in 1972.
Freddy is survived by his wife Ann Willis Gomez, his four daughters, Gloria G. Lorey (Kevin), Leslie G. Whiting (Travis), Adriana G. Levergood (Bruce) and Elena G. Scruggs (David), his six grandchildren, Victoria Gomez, Whitney Cole, Jacob Neely, David Scruggs, Isabella Whiting and Travis Whiting Jr.
He is also survived by his five sisters, Maria Amparo Allen, Gloria Inez Gomez Duque, Delia Patricia Gomez Duque, Liliana Gomez Duque, Luzhelena Emard, four nieces, and two nephews.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at 2:00 pm at Fountainhead Memorial, 7359 Babcock St. SE, Palm Bay, FL. Freddy was an avid Believer in Christ and made it his mission to spread the gospel to anyone willing to listen.
