Jose was a wonderful provider for his family and was considered a workaholic that would never miss a day of work even when he was sick. He held many jobs throughout his life, but his favorites were being an excavator and running a dump truck. He was a man of God, role-model, would always help anyone in need and because of his sense of humor, inspiring character, and generous spirit he had many friendships that lasted a lifetime as well as many new friends he met along the way. His grandchildren and family meant a lot to him and he enjoyed spending time with them and grilling carne asada.
