On February 26, 2023, our brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend, Jose Angel Gonzales, affectionately called “Mexican Joe,” passed away from his injuries sustained from an accident on February 24, 2023. Joe was born in Brookshire, Texas to Olivia Gonzales and Alfred Flores. Joe spent his teen years in Alleyton, Texas where he was known to his friends as “Coconut.” He then traveled around Texas working on a seismograph crew. After that, he settled in Yoakum, Texas where he worked at Texaco as a service technician prior to moving to Columbus. He loved fishing and working on lawn mowers. Joe was a handy man/yard man for the Columbus area and enjoyed washing cars and helping local businesses with small jobs. He always had a funny comment to say to everyone he met. He will be greatly missed by his friends and family. We will forever be grateful for all the memories we have with him.
