Eugene Godoy


Eugene Valles “Gino” Godoy, age 50, passed away Oct. 13, 2023. He was born in Globe, Arizona, on June 5, 1973, the son of Dora Marie Valles Godoy and Carlos Gonzales Godoy.

He worked in construction.

His passions and hobbies were the love he had for his family and friends. He enjoyed fishing, camping, rivers, lakes, motorcycles, dancing, singing, parties, BBQs, picnics and driving out in the hills. He could even tell you how to cook rice; he said, “You have to use Saran Wrap so it doesn’t get hard.”

He loved telling jokes with his infectious laughter and smile.

He is survived by his children (daughters) Talia Godoy and Desery Godoy; two grandchildren Jeremiah James and Vanelope Rose; brothers Edward Charles Godoy, Eric Valles Godoy and Adam Rey Godoy; sisters Victoria Godoy Juvera, Mary Ellen Godoy Granadino (Francisco P. Granadino) and Sylvia Geiser (Raymond F. Geiser); 25 nephews and nieces; and 42 great-nephews and nieces.
