The database page for Henry Gomez
Henry and I met in the early 60s while attending RCC in Riverside. We played on the RCC baseball team; he was a fine ball player. What I remember most about Henry is his infectious smile ... and he was always smiling. Everyone liked Henry; he was fun to be with and enjoyed teasing everyone. He drove a cherry metallic green old Ford pickup. It was a very old model, 1937 or 1938, I am not certain. Nonetheless, the truck was his pride and joy. Apparently, he was killed a month after I arrived in Vietnam. We did not serve together, but I'm certain he was a fine soldier and died honorably. God bless you, Henry.
Henry Gomez was a good friend.
I really knew Henry's little brother more than Henry.
