Gomez, Frank  
Frank "Goggles" Gomez A lifelong Wilmington resident, Musician Bandleader, ILWU 13 Union Officer, Coach, Groundskeeper, Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, brother, uncle & cousin joined the Lord at the the age of 61 on July 22, 2015 at home after a short battle with cancer with his wife by his side. He was born to Bertha Sedano and Juan Gomez on November 17, 1953. It is hard to say whether Frank was more proud of his family, being a Longshoreman, the meticulous fields for the kids at John Mendez (Gibson) Baseball Park or the latest gig Azure had played or for that matter which of these he did best because he did them all so well. If you played baseball at John Mendez Field or are a member of ILWU local 13 you share the loss with our families because his contribution to these organizations was intense and extensive. Frank did the things nobody wanted to do but had to be done. Many may know him as the founding member of Azure which was the climax of a musical career that spanned six decades. Pretty much. Frank's first job as a longshoremen was throwing bananas as a teenager in the early 70s. He accumulated thousands hours of casual work on the docks in his off time during a 20 year career at the Long Beach Naval Shipyard. He became a registered casual in 1984 and got his book in 1995. There is not a job on the waterfront that Frank Gomez did not do. In 2002 he and his close friend Julio Salas ran as a block and Frank was elected Night Dispatcher. From then until just recently he was behind the window. That meant a lot of campaigning but he loved really meeting all his union brothers and sisters, and loved those members for their support and being part of a family that is the greatest workforce in the world in the ILWU. That's right. Frank began playing guitar at age 7 and was a gifted musician. He could play most any instrument, but his specialties were lead vocals and the trombone. He was in the Marching Band at Phineas Banning High School where he graduated in 1971. At 15, in the bars at The Pike, Frank got his first gigs and he never stopped. He played often with members of Tierra and The Midniters. He played a lot with Home Cookin and from there the members of Azure came. Azure was the premier party band in the Harbor for over twenty years and Frank was at the helm. Frank was the go to guy when you needed a band for a benefit as his generous nature extended to the whole community of Wilmington. Rush it. Frank often coached his children, grandchildren and many other kids in baseball and football at JC Field, Banning Park and others. He umpired for many years. He touched many lives as a coach and friend. Up until recently he maintained the baseball fields. He wanted the grass and infield to look like Dodger Stadium, for the kids of Wilmington, they did. Frank is survived by his wife Mary (Rangel) Gomez; children, Frank Jr, and Tony Gomez, Marina Linares and Lisa De La Cruz; Grandchildren, Angel, Frank III, Rebecca, Sophia, Diego and Ava Gomez, Jada and Julian Linares and Vincent Andrade; Great grandchildren, Alyssa, Cassius and Elias. Also his baby girl, (goddaughter) Sandra Rangel. Siblings, Ernie Sedano, Ofelia Lopez, Virginia Pereira and Ramona Gomez, along with numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Frank was truly loved and will be greatly missed by his wife and family. Services for Frank will be Monday, August 3rd from 5:30pm-9pm with a Rosary at 7pm at Green Hills Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes. A Holy mass will be held on Tuesday, August 4th at 10:00am at St. Peter and Paul Church in Wilmington, burial following at Green Hills Cemetery. Please sign guestbook at .dailybreeze.com/obits
