Joseph Edward Roque Jr., Died on Saturday, February 16, 2020. Joseph had just celebrated his 33rd birthday on February 9th. Many people who knew Joseph knew him by many names Joseph, Eddie, Baloo , etc.; but the name that meant the most to him was being called Dad. He would do anything for his kids they were his world. If he got to see his kids, he was the happiest person in the world. To see and hear them laugh/smile take them to their doctor appointments or just be around them that's all he wanted. That is what he lived for.
Everyone that knew Joseph knows that he would give you the shirt off his back if he saw you needed it. That is the person he was. He would step in if he saw someone was getting harassed not thinking twice about it. Joseph liked to help others even when he was struggling. To those that weren't close to him or didn’t know him, and perhaps perceived him as a grouch, mean or this big bear of a person, I’d say you would be partially right because once he let you in he was the biggest teddy bear. He had a big heart with lots of love to give and a beautiful smile that would light up the room. If Joseph cared about you he called you family. And so he leaves behind many people to carry on his memory: we hope his kids, Darla age 3, Donovan age 3 & Sebastian who will be turning 2 in March 2020, grow up knowing and are reminded of the love Joseph had for them; and that their family help keep Joseph’s memory alive. Visitation will be held at McNerney’s Mortuary in San Pedro on Friday, March 13th between the hours of 11 a.m.- 4 p.m. The family is grateful for the condolences, but declines flowers as he will be cremated shortly after.
