Gabriel Diaz

November 11, 1984 — October 5, 2020

Bastrop, Texas

Gabe was born November 11, 1984 to David Diaz and Roberta Thelen in Round Rock Texas. He gained his wings after a long-fought battle with cancer on October 5, 2020 at 11:32 A.M. at his home surrounded by loved ones.

Gabe was a dedicated husband, father, family man, brother and friend who spent his time pulling tricks, having fun, and living life on the edge with his linemen buddies. Gabe always expressed that his job as a lineman was more than a career.  “It runs through my veins” he would say.

Gabe never met a stranger and was always quick to offer an encouraging or uplifting word.

Gabe enjoyed playing the drums, being with his family, and worshipping his Lord.

Gabe is preceded in death by his father David Diaz, Stepmother Barabara Diaz, Grandfathers Harold Locke and Homer Diaz, Grandmother Carmen Brown, Aunts Donna Allen and Jeanette Mims.

Gabe is survived by his loving wife Michelle Diaz and their children Elisha, Naomi, and Gabriel Jr. Diaz of Bastrop, TX; mother and step father Scott and Roberta Thelen of Briggs, TX; Siblings David (Kristina) Locke of Seguin, TX, Sarah Diaz of Round Rock, TX, Peter (Ashley) Thelen of Atlanta, TX, Samuel Thelen of Atlanta, TX, Nathanael Thelen (Rachel) of Arkadelphia, AR, and Paul Thelen of Briggs, TX; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
