Jose will be remembered for his love of his Lord, family, extended family, church family consisting of Freedom Church of Spur, TX, Springs of Life Church of Roaring Springs, TX and his Patton Springs family in Afton, TX.

Jose was known as a man with a winning smile, a joke to tell, and a contagious laugh. Jose is easily described as the “real deal” a genuine kind of guy. What you saw is what you got. He was truly a once in a lifetime kind of man. He knew he wasn’t perfect, but was unapologetically himself, and for that reason he was loved by many and touched so many lives.

His family and friends will miss his spontaneous personality, cheerful attitude, radiant spirit and his “ROAR” when hearing the Christian song “Warriors of Worship”.
