With great sadness, the Flores family announces the death of Ephraim (ALBERT) Flores, known to many as “Albert,” a family man who was a husband, father, grandfather-to-be, son, brother, cousin, and friend. At the age of sixty-five, Albert, a long-time resident of Gilbert, Arizona, passed away Wednesday, July 20, 2022, in the comfort of his home, just 10 days past his 65th birthday. Albert, son of Efrain and Evangelina Flores, married the love of his life, Catherine (Cathy) 39 years ago and has two beautiful daughters, Amanda Galvez and Breanna Flores who have been and always will be the center and light of Albert’s life. Albert was a successful business owner and licensed contractor for over 35 years whose education reflected his career path in Horticulture and as a Master Gardener, where his business developed not only clients but long-lasting friendships. Albert was authentic and believed you needed to be true to who you are in life. His honesty and values are what he lived by, and he led by example for so many and positively impacted those who knew him. Albert, you will be missed. We will always love you!
Albert is survived by his wife Catherine Flores and daughters Amanda Leigh Galvez and Breanna Danelle Flores, son-in-law Justin Galvez, grandson-to-be Gavin Galvez, and Albert’s parents Efrain F. Flores and Evangelina Almazan Flores.
Albert was preceded in death by his younger brother Jonathan (Jay) Flores.

Breanna and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I’m sending all my thoughts to the entire family. Stay strong and together during these trying times.
While far too short, our time with Albert was such a blessing. We are so thankful for how your family welcomed Justin with such love. Our families blended is such a wonderful gift from God. We are thankful that Albert is in peace and with our Heavenly Father and his brother now. We love you all and pray for comfort during this difficult time.
I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers and thoughts are with you.
Cathy I’m so sorry to hear about your loss, I know how much it hurts to lose your loved on as I lost my husband in early March as well to mom in early December, just remember as family I will always keep you and your loved ones in my heart and prayers. Albert will be missed dearly.
Dear Cathy, I was saddened to hear of your husband’s passing, and my thoughts are with you and your family. I’m thinking of you during this difficult time.
Cathy, Tios Efrain, Vangie and Flores family. Sending our very deepest condolences for your loss. My heart aches, especially as I look back at our pictures when we were all in Colorado for Breanna’s college graduation. I will dearly miss our conversations my cousin and I had, we stayed in touch and we were a welcoming voice of laughter and encouragement for each other. Much love and hugs to all from Tia Zoraida Flores Truan, Rosie Piercy and family. I love you, Albert, and will miss you forever. 💔🙏❤🙏💕🙏
Albert was a great man, man of great integrity! Praying for all of your family!
Our dear son Albert, a precious soul, indeed. His delight was always to please God as best he could. In so doing, God blessed him in so many ways. Your condolenses testify of that. Thank you for your thought- fulness and prayers. “Absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.” 2 Cor.5:8
Dear Cathy and family,
I was saddened to learn about Albert’s passing, and my love and prayers go out to all of you, including his parents and family. Bill and I were friends with you for many years when we lived in AZ and were blessed by your friendship. He was a wonderful man who worked hard, loved his family and loved the Lord. I imagine he and Bill are exchanging stories and catching each other up on our lives since we moved back to Florida in 2012. It’s hard to believe it’s real when our loved ones leave us, and it leaves a huge hole in our hearts and lives. I understand your hurt and pain, as I still feel it and Bill’s been gone a year July 28th. No one can really understand unless they’ve experienced this kind of loss. We know they are in Heaven with the Lord, whole and free from their suffering, and for that, we rejoice, but we still miss them so much, and the hurt is very real. We just have to try to take comfort in the knowledge that we will be with them again one day, worshipping and praising God together face-to-face every day, for eternity! I know God will be your comfort and strength through the difficult days ahead, as He is our rock and refuge. Prayers and much love to you all.
Sending my condolences to you and your family
Wanted to take a moment to say thank you to you all for your kind words. Albert was an exceptional human being and he will be missed dearly. I struggle every day coming to terms with his passing. What brings me comfort is knowing that he is in Heaven. He’s no longer sick but whole again. There is peace in this and pain in his absence. Thank you for your condolences. Sincerely, Catherine Flores
