Jose was a brilliant man. He spent his life as an entrepreneur, and proudly believed, “you never work a day in your life if you love what you do.” He was extremely resourceful; spending hours researching anything and everything he thought was of interest to anyone. Because of this his friends and family constantly looked to him for advice. He also loved nature; his favorite way to spend his free time was fishing, camping, and gardening. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
