Nacido y creado en San Miguel, El Salvador, Jose se mudo a Los Angeles en 1972 a la edad de 22 años siguiendo el sueño Americano. Atendió Los Angeles Trade Technical College graduándose como soldador profesional. Trabajo en Culver Iron Works por casi 20 años perfeccionando su obra. Aunque fue un excelente soldador no ay duda que su llamado fue el Futbol. “Loco Toño”, su apodo, fácilmente fue unos de los mejores futbolistas en ambos defensiva y ofensiva en la área de Los Angeles entre el 1980-1994.

Entre todos sus éxitos el momento que definió su vida fue en el 1975 cuando conoció al amor de su vida Rosa Irma Nolasco. En el 1979 se casaron y tuvieron a su hijo Noel, seguido por sus dos hijas Yuri y Celia nacidas en 1985 y 1987. Hasta este punto no había duda que al pesar de sus éxitos su pasión más grande fue su familia, dándole mucho orgullo y dándole la oportunidad de ser un esposo y padre cariñoso e cuidadoso y un hombre ejemplar a su familia.

Desafortunadamente en 1994 fue debilitado trágicamente durante un juego de futbol a la edad de 44 años, forzándolo en retirarse temprano. Sin embargo de tener varios problemas médicos en los años siguientes su dedicación y amor incondicional hacia su familia siempre se mantuvo fuerte e igual su familia hacia él.

El padre y madre de Jose ya han fallecido Gregorio y Ana Virginia Nolasco (Tario) de la Colonia Belen, El Salvador. También ya fallecida su suegra Celia “Doña Chela” Reyes a quien la quería mucho. Ellos ya están disfrutando de Jose.

Toño es sobrevivido por su esposa de 40 años Irma Nolasco quien siempre a estado a su lado; su hijo Noel y la esposa Rosie Nolasco, su hija Yuri y su esposo Stephen Andrews, y su hija “Chely” y su esposo Jairon Garcia. Papa Toño siempre será recordado por sus querido nietos Jaden, Savannah, Alex y Diego.

Toño siempre será amado y extrañado por sus compadres Victor y Chave Gutierrez, quienes siempre apoyaron de él y su familia más aun después de enfermarse. Finalmente, el es sobrevivido por sus queridos hermanos Martha, Raul, Elia, Luis, Carlos, Manuel, Esperanza, Oscar y muchos más familiares y amistades quienes lo tendrán siempre en su corazón.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Born and raised in San Miguel, El Salvador, Jose moved to Los Angeles in 1972 at the age of 22 to chase the American Dream. He attended Los Angeles Trade Technical College to become a professional welder and worked at Culver Iron Works for nearly 20 years perfecting his trade. While an outstanding tradesman, there is no doubt that Jose's true calling was for the sport of Fútbol. "Loco Toño", as he was known, was easily one of the top players in the Greater Los Angeles area between 1980-1994, excelling at both offensive and defensive positions.

In the midst of all his success, the defining moment of his life was in 1975, when he met the love of his life, Rosa Irma Nolasco. In 1979 they were married and gave birth to their son Noel followed by his two daughters, Yuri and Celia, born in 1985 and 1987 respectively. At this point, there was no question in anyone's mind, that despite his many successes, Family was his true passion, giving him endless pride and allowing him to be both a caring nurturer and a loving mentor.

Unfortunately, in 1994, Jose was tragically struck down in his prime, during a Fútbol match, at the all too young age of 44, forcing him into early retirement. Despite subsequent decades of health problems, he maintained an everpresent and unfaltering love and dedication to his family, who was every bit as dedicated in their love and care for him.

Jose was predeceased by his parents, Gregorio and Ana Virginia Nolasco (Tario) from Colonia Belen, El Salvador, and his mother-in-law Celia “Doña Chela” Reyes whom he loved dearly.

Toño is survived by his wife of 40 years Irma Nolasco who was always and forever by his side; by his son Noel and his wife Rosie Nolasco, his daughter Yuri and husband Stephen Andrews, and his daughter "Chely" and her husband Jairon Garcia. Papa Toño will always be remembered by his loving grandchildren, Jaden, Savannah, Alex, and Diego. Toño will be forever loved and sorely missed by his compadres Victor and Chave Gutierrez, who were always loving and supportive of him and his family, perhaps even more so when he became disabled. Finally, he is also survived by his siblings, Martha, Raul, Elia, Luis, Carlos, Manuel, Esperanza, Oscar and many more family and friends who will forever keep him in their thoughts.
