Erwin “Goyito” Gregorio Franco passed away on January 8, 2022 at the age of 55. He was a loving husband, brother, uncle, and friend.

Erwin was born on October 6, 1966 in Guatemala and later moved to California where he attended college and received his associate degree. Erwin worked as a maintenance technician for many years. He then went on to marry his beloved wife, MaryLou.

Erwin was a wonderful man who was very talented in the kitchen and will always be remembered for his famous brisket and barbeque recipes. If he wasn’t in the kitchen cooking, you could find him dancing and living life to the fullest. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
