David Rene Gonzales went to be with his Lord and Savior at the young age of 25 on Thursday, April 29, 2021. He went peacefully surrounded by his loved ones at his home in Beeville, Texas.
David, a lifelong Bee County resident, was born October 6, 1995, in Beeville to Francisco Benavides Gonzales Jr. and Marianita (Trevino) Gonzales. He was a 2014 graduate of A.C. Jones High School and had a love and passion for music. David was instrumental in making his family’s band, David Trevino y Los Tremendos, the huge success it is, leading as bass guitarist.
