Born in Mexico City, Jose Alfredo came from a big family of twelve, was known by the nickname “Concho” and embraced life with a vibrant spirit and unwavering dedication to his family. In 1979, he courageously embarked on a new chapter, moving to Chicago in pursuit of a better future for his loved ones. He worked as a mechanic welder for thirty years before retiring and dedicating his life to his family. Throughout his life, Jose Alfredo found joy in playing racket ball, cars, taking care of animals, especially his birds as well as watching and playing soccer.

His wisdom, kindness, and unwavering support served as a beacon of strength for his family, inspiring them to pursue their dreams with determination and resilience.
