Jose Tapia Memorial Fund

Jose Tapia Sr. was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was a hard worker, was well-loved by many, and was very selfless. He lived a simple life, never owning anything extravagant, as he always preferred to put others first. He passed away on Monday May 20, 2019 after a 15 year battle with kidney failure and other health issues. He was always a fighter and had made it through several hospital visits in the past but this last hospital stay was different as he was very tired from years of dialysis and his lungs and heart were significantly weakened. He leaves behind a wife, four adult children, and five young grandchildren whom he adored. He was the patriarch of the family and will be greatly missed. Because he loved his family so much he made some financial preparations for his end of life care so they would not have to worry. Unfortunately, due to the high expense of funeral costs, it's not enough to cover everything. His family would like to give him a memorial service and burial on Tuesday, May 28th to honor his life and finally put him to rest. Please consider donating to help give him a proper send off into the next life. Any amount is appreciated and is greatly needed. Any remaining funds will go to the family to settle his affairs and help support his wife during this difficult time. Thank you.


José Tapia Z. era un esposo, padre y abuelo querido. Trabajaba duro, era muy querido por muchos y era muy noble. Vivió una vida simple, sin poseer nada extravagante, ya que el siempre prefirió poner primero a los demás. Falleció el lunes 20 de mayo de 2019 después de una batalla de 15 años con complicaciones renales y otros problemas de salud. Siempre fue un luchador y había superado varias visitas al hospital en el pasado, pero esta última estancia en el hospital fue diferente, ya que estaba muy cansado por los años de diálisis. Sus pulmones y corazón se debilitaron significativamente. Deja a una esposa, cuatro hijos adultos y cinco nietos a quienes adoraba con todo su corazón. Fue el patriarca de la familia y será muy extrañado. Debido a que amaba tanto a su familia, hizo algunos preparativos financieros para que su familia no tuvieran que preocuparse. Desafortunadamente, debido al alto costo de los gastos funerarios, no es suficiente para cubrir todo. A su familia le gustaría darle un servicio conmemorativo y un entierro el martes 28 de mayo para honrar su vida y finalmente ponerlo a descansar. Por favor, considere donar para ayudar a darle un envío adecuado a la próxima vida. Cualquier cantidad es apreciada y es muy necesaria. Todos los fondos restantes se destinarán a la familia para resolver sus asuntos finales y ayudar a apoyar a su esposa durante este momento difícil. Gracias.
