It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved cousin Josue Zurita(Cochito). 

On Monday October 16, 2017, after about one week of battling the Harvey flood flesh eating bacteria, Josue was finally succumbed to Necrotizing Fascitis infection, while being treated at Jennie Sealy UTMB Hospital in Galveston. Josue was born  September 1, 1986 in Oaxaca,Mexico.
A hard working carpenter, he was  a 31 years old devoted Catholic, a loyal husband and a loving father.  He moved to United States to help and support his family back in Mexico.  He was living away from his 29 years old wife Gloria and his 11 years old daughter named Carolina to work hard and save money to support them.
Everybody remembers Josue for his smile and happy laughs.  He was always smiling.  He loved life and was loved by all his relatives and friends.  One of his final wishes was to be buried in his beloved hometown of Miahuatlan, Oaxaca, Mexico. For his hospital stay, medical and funeral expenses, this memorial fundraising  at GoFundMe was setup by his cousin Brenda Anastacio Zurita.  Thank you.
