Jose was born on June 8th, 1941 in Jalisco, Mexico. As a young man, Jose traveled to California and ultimately settled in Las Vegas in 1963. He found work opportunities in the booming hotel and casino industry where he would work in different capacities for many years. In 1966, Jose met his future wife of 53 years, Evalia Romero Gonzalez. They raised two children in the Las Vegas valley who enjoyed long careers in the casino business and law enforcement.
Jose enjoyed an active lifestyle throughout his years. Soccer, racquetball, and eight ball were among his favorites while still finding time to run three Las Vegas marathons. He played several musical instruments and participated in local church choirs. Jose was a sincere good-hearted person that made friends wherever he went. He will be greatly missed.
Jose is survived by his wife Evalia Perez, daughter Beatriz Perez, son Alex Perez and two grandchildren. We love you pops! .
