Gustavo O. Vergara

d. July 7, 2023

Overland Park, Kansas

 

Gustavo O. Vergara came to this world in Puebla, Mexico in 1942, son of Dr. Gustavo & Felisa Vergara, and passed away on July 7, 2023.

 

He went ahead on the trip that all of us will have to take sooner or later having had the opportunity to bid farewell to his family and friends. He left this world with a big smile, thanking God for all his many blessings and for the very good life he had. 

 

He attended the German school in Puebla, Mexico and graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Texas in Austin. 

 

He was lucky to be born in Mexico and to live in the United States. He truly loved history, geography and was an avid reader. He traveled the world and visited 63 countries.  Due to his outgoing nature, he always made friends wherever he went.

 

He loved working for Readers Digest in the offices of Mexico City, New York, and Miami. His career there spanned over 30 years.

 

He was married to JoAnn Vincent and had two children, Roberta and Gusta. He was married to Yvonne for 49 years and had one son, Alex. He loved his kids and was very close to them all his life. He was a wonderful son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and friend. 

 

He is survived by his wife Yvonne, his three children: Roberta and her husband Brenny Hughes, Gusta and his wife Sandy, and Alex and his girlfriend Kylie; his four grandchildren: Gabriel, Celia, Sofia and Ivan as well as his sister Graciela and her husband Juan Alberto Rueda; his nieces and nephews: Gerardo, Juan Pablo, Renata, Mónica, Gaby & Paco.
