Gabriel Andaverde was born May 02, 1983, in Abilene, Texas, to Ralph Andaverde and Eva Martinez. He spent majority of his childhood living in the Vogel projects where he developed lifelong friendships. Gabriel married his childhood sweetheart, Angela Baez, on March 19, 2005. Throughout his life, he provided for his wife and five children by working for Sonic, Walmart, and in the last five years, Inca-Trio Fire Services alongside his father in law, Carlos Torres. To his children, Gabriel Andaverde, was a careful, goofy, compassionate, and "lit" father. Those who knew him, admired him for his positivity, consideration for others, and his commitment to being a good father.

 

According to his wife, Gabriel started most days early for work with a care free attitude. In addition, he never stopped trying new things as he would bake cakes for fun and take part in DIY house projects. In his down time, you would find him listening to Spanish and country music as he often called himself the Mexican Jason Aldean.

 

Lastly, Gabriel would want us to say one more thing. Go 49rs!
