James (JJ) Gomez was born in Helper to Ben and Delores Gomez on May 25, 1957 and passed away at the age of 55 on Dec. 11 in Tooele. JJ married Mary Jane Thomas and had four beautiful children. They later divorced. Tommie and JJ met at Deseret Chemical Depot, where they both worked. On Dec. 8, 2000, Tommie married the love of her life and together, we were raising our daughter, Elli. JJ is survived by his wife Tommie and daughter Elli, his ex-wife Mary Jane and their children Tommy, Michael, Becky and her husband, Kevin, their two children (JJ’s only two grandchildren) Jasmine and Brian, and Daniel and his wife, Staci, whose wedding we were able to attend in May of this year. JJ was so proud of that moment and on meeting his new grandson, Brian, and being amazed at how tall Jasmine was. He also has many brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles in Helper and abroad. JJ was preceded in death by his parents and several brothers and sisters. As per JJ’s wishes, he requested to be cremated and no funeral services performed. In lieu of flowers, make a donation to your local animal shelter or to the Humane Society in JJ’s name. You will always and forever be my one and only true love. I love you most, I love you mostest, I love you mostestest. Arrangements in care of Dalton-Hoopes Funeral Parlor, 884-3031.
