Jose Alejo Jimenez II

September 9th, 1944 – December 13th, 2021

Jose “Joe” Jimenez, born in Nogales, Sonora, the eldest of 13 siblings, touched a great many lives through his excellent work ethic & sociable personality over a long, whole, and rewarding 77 years of life. His legacy: came from little, yet still built a whole lot. A dedicated husband, father (dad, daddy), brother, friend, neighborhood dad, & tata not just to his grandchildren, but also to youth who he barely knew but cared for anyway. Not a ‘perfect’ man by any means, but a man of much character, personality, humor and unconditional love toward those who were lucky to have received it.

Loving whole-heartedly, he was very proud of his children. But, the true twinkle in his eye were his grandchildren; supporting and loving them in ways he only knew, always making sure to check in when all was too quiet for him-- his famous saying: “No se oyen los grillos”. He loved to watch his grandchildren play their sports, and before baseball/soccer games would often leave messages for them to “kick ass”.

Never quite satisfied with the quiet of home, he loved to hop into his truck, turn on his music, and drive wherever the winds would take him; whether it was hunting down deals at the grocery store, dropping into his favorite restaurants, or making sure he stayed fresh with a clean pair of kicks and a visit to his barber (thank you Ronnie, Elite Barber Shop). He loved his daily cafecito, and his grandsons Anthony & Adrian were more than happy to make sure his cabinet was stocked. No matter the time of day, Tata was always excited to have a pot brewed fresh so that he could sit & share a cup with his grandsons who were always happy to oblige.

Jose is preceded in death by his parents Jose Alejo & Guadalupe, daughter in law Yvonne, and grandson Nicholas

He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Marina Jimenez, & his favorite dogs Sam, Kourtney & puppy Lucky

His four children—Jose (Suzette & Olivia), Diana (Rob), Albert (Jill), & Mini (Abe)

His grandchildren—Anthony, Adrian, Miguel, Robert, Alyssa, Esteban, Diego, Cyvia, Ani, Ciana, & Dominik

& his siblings—Cecilia (Hilario) Castro, Armando (Blanca) Jimenez, Norma (Efrain) Batriz, Osbaldo (Sandra) Jimenez, Catalina (Ignacio) Cienfuegos, Obdulia Jimenez, David (Ramona) Jimenez, Sergio (Enedina) Jimenez, Tomas (Maricela) Jimenez, Socorro (Enríquez) Chávez, Joel (Judith) Jimenez, Rosalinda (Danny) Rico; Followed by 37 nieces & nephews, and 73 great nieces & nephews

 

José "Joe" Jiménez, nacido en Nogales, Sonora, el mayor de 13 hermanos, tocó muchas vidas a través de su excelente ética de trabajo y personalidad sociable durante 77 años de vida largos, completos y gratificantes. Su legado: vino de poco, pero aún así construyó mucho. Un esposo dedicado, padre (dad, daddy), hermano, amigo, papá del vecindario y tata no solo a sus nietos, sino también a la juventud que apenas conocía pero que de todos modos cuidaba. No un hombre "perfecto" de ninguna manera, sino un hombre de mucho carácter, personalidad, humor y amor incondicional hacia aquellos que tuvieron la suerte de haberlo recibido.

Amoroso de todo corazón, estaba muy orgulloso de sus hijos. Pero, el verdadero brillo en sus ojos eran sus nietos; apoyándolos y amándolos de maneras que solo conocía, siempre asegurándose de registrarse cuando todo estaba demasiado tranquilo para él: su famoso dicho: "No se oyen los grillos". Le encantaba ver a sus nietos practicar sus deportes, y antes de los juegos de béisbol / fútbol les dejaba mensajes dieciendo “Kick ass.”

Nunca del todo satisfecho con la tranquilidad de su hogar, le encantaba subirse a su troque, encender su música y conducir donde los vientos lo llevaran; ya sea buscando ofertas en la tienda de comestibles, visitando sus restaurantes favoritos o asegurándose de que se mantuviera fresco con un par de zapatos nuevos y una visita a su barbero (gracias Ronnie, Elite Barber Shop). Amaba su cafecito diario, y sus nietos Anthony y Adrian estaban más que felices de asegurarse de que su gabinete estuviera abastecido. No importaba la hora del día, Tata siempre estaba emocionado de tener una cafetera fresca para poder sentarse y compartir una taza con sus nietos que siempre estaban felices de complacer.

José es precedido en la muerte por sus padres José Alejo y Guadalupe, su nuera Yvonne y su nieto Nicolás.

Le sobreviven su esposa de matrimonio de 54 años, Marina Jiménez, y sus perros favoritos Sam, Kourtney y el cachorro Lucky
