Matilde Jose “Matt” Jimenez, 48, of Gonzales, passed away at home, surrounded by his loving family and friends on Thursday, September 3, 2020. He was born June 3, 1972 in San Louis Potosi, Mexico to Casimiro Jimenez and Carlotta Cruz. Matt married Olivia Marie Hildalgo on May 2, 2020 in Gonzales.
Matt will be remembered by all who knew him as a dedicated and hard worker. He never knew what taking a “day-off” meant. If he was not at work as an operator for Ranger Energy Services, he was working on projects at home. Matt was always willing to drop what he was doing to help others in need. Having grown up in the rural area of San Louis Potosi, Matt knew well the hardships of providing for a family. He moved to Texas and worked hard to provide for himself and his family. He lived an example of hard work for his children to follow. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him, especially his beloved wife and children.
