Jose R. Jimenez, Jr. of Ingleside, Texas left this world on June 23, 2018 at the age of 92 surrounded by his family.
Jose was born on July 6th, 1925 in Bishop, Texas, and as a boy lived and worked on Sahadi Farm near Ingleside with his parents and 10 siblings.

He was a gun captain aboard the USS Appling, and spoke of earning the title of "shell back" for sailing back and forth across the equator many times during the war.

He is survived by sons, Joe (Cindy), Mario (Debra), David (Laura), Noe (Adela), and Mike (Shelly) as well as numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.
