My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. May he rest in peace. I'll always remember our trip to corpus Christi with Victoria Transit. All he did was play oldies music. Which I don't like ,but that what made him happy. Now he can play them for the angels.

Rhonda

My condolences to the family. I grew up on Morales st,four houses down from the Escojido Family.we would play basketball all day everyday, even nights.That was the hangout growing up.We had many a great times. I considered the Escojido's an extension of my family. Although we lost contact over the years,I never forgot Joe.He was a pretty good basketball player, always was a friend.We would sit outside of his childhood home and talk into the wee hours of the night.You will be missed Brother,I love you.
