Leonard “Len” Esparza, 60 years old, went to go be with our Lord and Savior Friday, June 21, 2019. Len was a strong Christian man who was a testament to his family, friends, and everyone he met throughout his life. He was a talented artist and enjoyed cars of every type, but Hot Wheels held a special place in his heart. He worked for the Gallup McKinley County School System for over 30 years and enjoyed teaching and encouraging students to see education as a gift, rather than a chore. He is survived by his wife, Kimberly Esparza; daughter, Larissa Winstead; son-in-law, Chad Winstead; grandson, Cyrus Winstead; son, Savieay Esparza; daughter-in-law, Cora Esparza; daughter, Casia Esparza; and sister, Clara Landavazo.  He also leaves behind many cherished family members. The family of Len Esparza will be having a Celebration of his Life Saturday, July 6, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the Sacred Heart Cathedral Family Center, 415 E. Green Ave. Gallup, NM. The celebration will be an open house for family and friends alike, to come share memories and stories of his life. Please visit our online guestbook for Len at www.FrenchFunerals.com
