My Beloved Daddy, where do I begin...

Tio kitty cat -how you will be missed.... You always had us laughing at your shenanigans. You were the life of the party and often got everyone in some sort of trouble. :) Whether it was your knee high socks with shorts and dress shoes, your "cool" hats or your crazy colored shirts - you always had your own fashion sense. As long as you were comfortable and thought you looked cool - you didn't care what anyone thought or said.
I remember you telling me when my dad passed that he would always be with me and now I want to share the same sentiment to my cousins. He will always be with you.
Lifting the family in prayers for peace and comfort during this difficult time. Much love to all.

I met Joe a few years ago when he was working at H.E.B. on Parmer and Mo Pac., Austin, TX. He had just finished bagging my items and said "you need help putting these groceries in your car?" I said No. He answered "of course you do" and we proceeded to go to my car together. He always had a smile and a joke to make you laugh or smile. Simply Priceless...Thank you Joe for gracing US ALL with your presence. God will look after your Family.

A cherished Thanksgiving. Will miss his laugh. Will miss his dancing. But most of all will miss his spirited and positive attitude he brought to any occasion.

Our deepest condolences to the Zamora and related families.

The day I met Joe, it felt like I had known him for many years. He had a way of making you feel comfortable when speaking to him, which compelled you to quickly offer your friendship. It would seem like Joe would always stop by and visit at the perfect time, to chat and catch up on life's happenings.

His family was the most important thing to him, and having known some of them I understand why. My son and I will surely miss him and although things will not be the same without him, good memories will live with us all.

Sincerely,
Charo Family

Joe was a neighbor & personal friend that always had a smile. When he found out I was fighting cancer he would stop by to bring me sweet bread & tacos ,but most of all to PRAY for my healing. We would always make sure too talk when we saw each other. We solved the world problems & ours just to get it off our minds. Joe was a VERY dedicated family man who loved his wife & kids. He will be missed by everyone that knew him. Rest in PEACE my brother in Lord & fellow veteran. Leonard - Semper Fi ✝️🙏❤️✌️😎
