His innate ability to connect with people, to lend a helping hand without hesitation, left an enduring imprint on the lives he touched. Whether through his music, his teachings, or simply his presence, Gerald had a rare gift of making everyone feel valued and understood. Gerald leaves behind a legacy of love and compassion that will continue to inspire all who were fortunate enough to know him. He is survived by his loving wife, Becky Fimbres, and their sons, Joaquin and Maceo, who were the light of his life. He is also survived by his father, Rene Fimbres of Silver City, NM, his mother, Rosa Garcia (Chavez) of Douglas, AZ, his brother Anthony Fimbres of Tucson, AZ, and a multitude of nieces, nephews, cousins, Tios, and Tias, all of whom cherished him deeply.
