Jose Quinones

May 11, 1947 ~ May 18, 2021 (age 74)


Jose Antonio Quinones was born on Mother's Day, Sunday May 11, 1947 (he never let us forget it). Jose passed away on May 18, 2021 at the age of 74 after a courageous fight against his severe conditions. Just like he dealt with all experiences in life, Jose managed his illness with strength and grace, and wanted to spend as much time as he could with all his loved ones. On his final days, he was surrounded by his family, who he adored more than anything else in this world.

He was a kind and loving husband to Digna Gonzalez and a father/step father to 9, Maritza, Jose Jr., David, Anibal (Annette), Omar, Noemi, Damaris, Edward and Elida (Manny). He was a phenomenal grandfather to Jason, Joshua, Anissa, Modesty, Niasia, Joelynn, Ja'nai, Tania, Jaslene, Amanda, Ashley, Aaron, Jonathan, Mariah, Nathan, Baby Angel (in heaven), Julisa, Elijah, Avion, Aaliyah, Ariana, Shaun, Amya, Adamari, Sammy, Shanice (Saiyr), Addison, Michael (Michael Jr.), Julian, Destiny, Amaya and Jimmy. He also leaves behind two of his brothers, Sergio and Roberto along with a multitude of nieces and nephews.
Jose was always a joyful person who always stood positive no matter the circumstances that were at hand. There was never 'no way out' for him and he always looked for the most positive solutions in every circumstance. He was the friendliest neighbor to some and the neighborhood watch for others. He was loved by family, friends and strangers. Jose never went anywhere that he didn't leave by making conversation with someone or leaving an impact on another. Jose was a great dancer, musician and singer (let him tell it lol), but at the end, he was a homebody who completely enjoyed quality time with his wife, children and grandchildren. That was his love language. When they were there with him, nothing else mattered. Jose always spoke truth and spoke from the heart. He may not have attended Church regularly, but he was about saving lives spiritually and physically. Always had everybody's best interest in mind and advised them on how to do so so they wouldn't fall into the worlds trap. He knew we heard him, but wouldn't be listening to him at that moment, but he always said, "when I'm gone, my words will always be with you." Jose was a simple and humble man who lived life to the fullest. His smile, his laugh, his accent and his 'yokes' will always be remembered by all...He'll Forever be a Our Warrior!!!!!
