Mr. Soto was born in Aramberrí Nuevo León, Mexico on August 11, 1944 to Juan & Nemoria Soto. Gilbert’s strong work ethic led to him becoming an expert in flooring. When he was not working, Gilbert enjoyed watching boxing and classic movies, listening to Ranchera music, or riding his horses.

Gilbert is survived by his wife, Mary “Mere” Soto; his children, Gilbert C. Soto, Jr. and Corina Soto (Carlos), of San Angelo, TX; grandchildren, Jonathan, Justin, and Jeremy Galvan, Brandon and Isaac Soto, and Mikayla Minjarez; great-grandchildren, Ayla Zapata and Zayliana Galvan. He is also survived by his siblings, Betty Eller (Rick) of San Antonio, TX, Amparo Escobedo (Leo), Mary Lou Cortez, Frank Soto (Josie), and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins of Laredo, TX.
