Jose Ernesto Azurdia was a man larger than life, loved by all his friends and family. A devoted husband, a caring father and a beloved grandfather. For a very long time he had been battling a number of illnesses, such as diabetes that led to kidney failure. In 2010 he recieved a kidney transplat which then led to squamous cell carcinoma cancer. He fought valiantly and beat all these obstacles. He was able to make it to his dream of renewing his vows with his wife on their 50th Wedding Anniversary just this past Saturday, November 26th. One of the last memories many share of him is that moment. On Thursday morning however, on December 1st, he went into cardiac arrest while in dialysis. His time had come. Funeral arrangements are being made and it would be greatly appreciated if family, loved ones, and the like would donate to the cause of his memory in this dire time. His family would be very thankful for even the smallest of donations.
