On January 24, 2019, Jose Guadalupe Chavez peacefully passed away surrounded by his loving family.
"Don Lupe" lived a happy and fulfilling life with his wife, Maria, of 62 years. He was a great role model to his 5 children, 13 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. As a farmer, he went to work every day, always watchful and proud of the fruits of his labor. His legacy will live on as a loving husband, devoted father and caring brother with a wonderful sense of humor and excellent work ethic. Que descanse en paz.
