September 9, 1963 — July 26, 2021

Saul H. Gonzalez, 57, a long-time resident of Thatcher, Arizona, passed away on July 26, 2021, in a tragic accident. Saul was born September 9, 1963, in Colonia San Diego, Chihuahua, Mexico, to Manuel and Moncerrat Gonzalez. Saul attended school at Academia Juarez in Colonia Juarez, Mexico. Upon finishing school, he served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Monterrey, Mexico. Following his mission, he moved to Douglas, Arizona, where he worked as a parts runner for Douglas Diesel. He was a truck driver for most of his life. Driving over the road for more than 10 years. He worked for various trucking companies. In 2004 Saul went to work for Halliburton, going overseas as a military contractor. He enjoyed his time overseas and took advantage of being able to visit other countries. He returned home to Pima, Arizona, in 2007 and married Tammy Huish. He worked for S and J Farms from then until his death. He enjoyed his time there working with Scott Alder and his brother-in-law Adam Huish. Saul was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He held and served in many callings, but his favorites were as a nursery leader and boy scout leader. He always had fun going on campouts and cooking forward parties. Saul always liked a good laugh. He loved to cook a good meal, asking your opinion on the meal he cooked for you, talking about horses, cattle, bull riding, holding ALL babies, talking your ear off. He was a jack of all trades, but a master of none. He loved to wheel and deal and was a master at it. He loved camping and being outdoors. He loved talking about the gospel of Jesus Christ and was well versed in it. He was very intelligent and could come up with a solution to almost any problem he was presented with. He was a great friend. He loved his kids and was so happy to finally become a grandpa. Saul will be missed immensely by all who knew him, especially his family.
