He was an avid athlete who enjoyed playing and watching many sports, but his favorite was playing golf every week with his brother Robert. Gilbert loved the outdoors and enjoyed camping and fishing with his family. He truly loved to be home, he loved to sing and dance, but most importantly he loved to sing to his wife Veronica who was his biggest fan. He always enjoyed gatherings at his home with all of his family and friends and was always a gracious host. He enjoyed weekend motorcycle rides with his wife, and his brother Roy Jr. and wife. He spoke with his mother, Mrs. Bertha Lujan every single day and always made sure she knew how important she and his father Roy Sr. were to him.
