Obituary

José Luis Díaz Sr., 81, de Egg Harbor Township, NJ falleció pacíficamente en su casa el Lunes 15 de Marzo de 2021. José, conocido como "Pocho" por su familia y amigos más cercanos, nació en Ponce, Puerto Rico el 18 de abril., 1939. Se mudó a Nueva Jersey en 1984 con su amada esposa, Milagros, y cuatro hijos: Wanda Ivelis, José Antonio, José Luis Jr. y María de los Ángeles. José comenzó su carrera en la industria de los casinos y se jubiló con orgullo de Trump Plaza. Como jubilado, José encontró alegría en los placeres más pequeños de la vida: andar en bicicleta todos los días, escuchar sus éxitos favoritos de “Los Panchos”, intentar ganar mucho en la lotería o simplemente ver un partido de béisbol en la televisión. A José le sobreviven su esposa durante 62 años, sus cuatro hijos, siete nietos y siete bisnietos.

Se llevará a cabo una celebración de la vida el martes 23 de marzo de 2021 de 11:00 am a 1:30 pm en Boakes Funeral Home, 6050 Main Street, Mays Landing, NJ 08330.
