Joseph Richard Pacheco was born to Joseph and Marilyn Pacheco on March 18th, 1961. He was reunited with his parents after his passing on August 13th, 2021 in Modesto CA.
He was loved by so many. He is survived by his first spouse, Nellie Rush, as well as their children Joseph Rush, Andrea Rush, David Pacheco and Jessica Pacheco, He is also survived by Kelly Crediford and their children, Joseph Pacheco, Lilawakan Pacheco, Johnathan Pacheco and Sixteen grandchildren. He also leaves behind his brother and sisters, many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. He had such a big love for his friends and family.
He was a very talented painter, as it was his passion in life to paint and restore classic vehicles and bikes. He was self-employed and also worked for Robert and Niki Bryan who treated him like family at Motherlode Customs in Sonora CA.
He was a music lover in general, though he loved classic rock and oldies. He had a love for movies. A few of his all-time favorite movies were American graffiti, Hollywood knights and Tombstone.
Though he played the tough guy and could be intimidating at times, he only had a temper when he needed to. He had a very special presence about him. He was magnetic in a way that even if you didn't know him, when he talked to you, you'd feel like you had known him forever.
He was a sturdy character with a keen sense of humor and tender soul. Though we knew his sense of humor to be crude at times, he was known to appreciate a good joke. His loud, contagious laugh will forever be missed.
Services for Joseph Pacheco will be at the Italian Cemetery: 540 F st, Colma Ca 94014 August 31st at 11:00 am.
