Jose de Jesus Gomez Falcon

October 6, 1934 ~ June 21, 2022 (age 87)

Tribute

Jose de Jesus Gomez Falcon was born on October 6, 1934. The second of four siblings, Jose worked as a young man on the family farm growing and harvesting corn and beans. Out of necessity and to help his family, Jose immigrated to the United States in 1976 to work hard to provide for his family. A few years after, he returned to Mexico intending to bring his entire family to the United States. He was able to bring his two sons, Jose and Rodrigo, and he worked tirelessly to assure his two boys would not need anything.

Jose worked for more than 40 years in the agricultural fields of the Central Valley, primarily in the Fresno and Madera area. His primary choice of work was the fig orchards and the fig industry. His sons and close friends remember him as a hard worker who never missed a day of work regardless of the physical toll it had on him. His boss knew he could always count on him to get the job done. One of Jose’s major life challenges occurred when his wife, Maria de la Luz, passed in 1997. Although Jose did not share much in terms of his emotions, it was quite evident this event in his life was one of the most difficult for him to overcome.

His two sons, Jose and Rodrigo, his daughter Gudelia, his two daughters-in-law, Brenda and Lucy, his sister Maria Elena, 15 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren, and countless nephews and friends survive Jose.

His wife Maria de la Luz, his parents Marcelino and Petra Gomez, and his brothers Gregorio y Leopoldo Gomez precede Jose in death.

Visitation will be held at Jay Chapel on, Monday, June 27, 2022 from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. directly followed by a Recitation of the Rosary at 6:00 p.m. also at Jay Chapel.

Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, June 28, 2022, 9:30 a.m. at St. Joachim Catholic Church, Madera, CA.


José de Jesús Gómez Falcón nació el 6 de octubre de 1934. El segundo de cuatro hermanos, José trabajó de joven en las tierras de su familia cultivando y cosechando maíz y frijoles. Por necesidad y para ayudar a su familia, José emigró a los Estados Unidos en 1976 para trabajar duro para mantener a su familia. Años después, regresó a México con la intención de traer a toda su familia a los Estados Unidos. Pudo traer a sus dos hijos, José y Rodrigo, y trabajó incansablemente para asegurarse que a sus dos hijos no les faltara nada.

José trabajó por más de 40 años en los campos del Valle Central, principalmente en el área de Fresno y Madera. José trabajo mayormente en los huertos de higo. Sus hijos y amigos cercanos lo recuerdan como un buen trabajador que nunca faltó a un día de trabajo, independientemente de cómo se sintiera. Su jefe sabía que siempre podía contar con él para hacer el trabajo. Uno de los principales desafíos de la vida de José ocurrió cuando su esposa, María de la Luz, falleció en 1997. Aunque José no compartía mucho en cuanto a sus emociones, era bastante evidente que este evento en su vida era uno de los más difíciles de superar para él.

A José le sobreviven sus dos hijos, José y Rodrigo, su hija Gudelia, sus dos nueras, Brenda y Lucy, su hermana María Elena, 15 nietos, 8 bisnietos e innumerables sobrinos y amigos.

Le precedieron en la muerte su esposa María de la Luz, sus padres Marcelino y Petra Gómez, y sus hermanos Gregorio y Leopoldo Gómez
