Jose M Paz

Jose M Paz passed away surrounded by his family in the early morning hours of January 10, 2022 in Artesia, NM. Cremation is planned and a celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Jose was born September 23, 1946 in El Paso, TX to Jose Manuel Paz & Estella Esquibel.
He married the love of his life, Faye Paz (Ramirez) June 21, 1969 in El Paso, TX.

The family moved to Artesia in 1979.

Jose worked for the Gas Company for many years, he was a member of the Moose Lodge, also a coach and president of the Girls Softball Association League.

Jose was a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan who always cheered his team on no matter what. He was a man of all trades and could do anything that came his way. For cooking, building, and repairs he was the man to call. He loved and lived his life to the fullest and never let anything get in his way. Jose always had a smile on his face. Most of all, he loved spending time with his family. They always brought enjoyment to his life. He had a loving heart and was always checking in on everyone. Even on his bad days he always made sure everybody was taken care of. Joking around with everyone was his way to let you know you had a place in his heart, and that is where you wanted to be. He is the backbone all of us and will continue to live on as we celebrate the life of Jose Paz.
