Jose “Joe” Flores passed away quietly on January 10, 2021, surrounded by his loving family at the age of 65 after a long illness that he faced with all the bravery and dignity one would expect from him during his time with us. Joe was born on August 5, 1955, Falfurrias, Texas to Ramiro and Edna Flores.
Joe graduated from W.B. Ray High school in 1974. He retired from Sherwin Aluminum Plant as well as Corpus Christi Army Depot where he worked as a skilled machinist until his retirement in 2020.
Joe was an active member at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, where he was a proud member of the Knights of Columbus Council #6280. He had a passion for barbecuing, working in his garden and spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was a diehard fan of the Houston Astros as well as the Texans. He loved spending time with his family and friends. We will never forget his beautiful smile and unconditional love.
