José was born in Torreon, Coahuila, Mexico. At the age of 18 he made his way to New Mexico. He met his wife Martha four years later. After a few months they were married. They had 3 children. In 1994 he became an official U.S. Citizen. He worked hard to achieve all his dreams.
He was the type of man that would help those in need without hesitation. He loved, cared, and had respect for everyone no matter what or how they lived their life. He had a heart of gold and will be truly missed. He will forever live on in the hearts of his family and friends.
This isn't goodbye. We will all be reunited with him someday. Until we meet again...
