Jose was born in Manila, Philippines on August 5, 1953. He is the beloved husband of Nenita Francisco; much loved father of Trish Lamere (Luke), JC Francisco (Aimee), Nick Francisco (Monique), and Jordana Francisco; cherished grandfather to Kaylah, Tyree, Alivea, Noah, Cagney, Teagyn, Raegyn, Nolan and Adriana; dear brother of Marilou, Papoose, Bernadette and Biyo. He was predeceased by his father Jose and mother Genoveva.
Jose was a dedicated husband and father. He truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures: spending time and chatting with family and friends, enjoying different cuisines, traveling with his wife, cooking, and giving cheer to his fellow dialysis patients and the staff. Jose had an uncanny ability to reach people in a deep and positive way. He will truly be missed and will be in our hearts forever.
