Many will remember Jose as a humble, loving man with an extremely generous heart. He would not hesitate a single second to help someone in need, literally willing to give you the shirt off his back. He loved to tease you and joke around, all while keeping his stylish fashion. To our family he was a great role model, tough, loyal and hard working. Jose was a true warrior until the very end.
