Florentino Gonzalez Jr.
Florentino “Toaster” Gonzalez, Jr.Born 12/3/1965. A man of many nicknames, passed peacefully in his home surrounded by his devoted family on 3/19/19. He was truly an amazing, devoted, soulmate and husband to Shelly. A superb father & best friend to Alex, Max, & Jordan (G), Jon, Brit & Sam Straus and all of their significant others as well. And a wonderful Son to Nani Bev. Known to family & friends as “Dr. Hands of Gold” who could fix anything. We never needed to hire anyone or wonder how or when it was going to be fixed. He started as a maintenance mechanic 13 years ago and rose to Corporate Facilities Manager for Medline Industries, Inc. He was always positive, passionate, dedicated professional and always willing to help or teach. Complications from Leukemia took him too early from our lives. Please register to be a bone marrow and organ & tissue donor. All donations should be made to the Leukemia Research Foundation. Please join us for a Memorial in his honor, Friday, March 29th from 6-8PM at Strang Funeral Chapel In Grayslake, IL
Thank you, The Gonzalez & Straus Family
