Jose was a man of strong faith. He was a dedicated father, husband and friend to all. He gave love to everyone and asked for nothing in return. His core values of love, humility, integrity, generosity, honesty and affection will truly be missed by all who knew him. He never missed an opportunity to welcome and comfort everyone. He was sincerely genuine and a very gentle man with a huge heart and always with a big smile. His kind words, his advice and especially his hugs and kisses will truly be missed.
