ALAMOSA — Jesus Valdez, 67 years old and a resident of Alamosa, Colorado passed away March 25th, 2021 at Penrose St. Francis in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was born October 19th, 1953 in Nochistlan, Zacatecas in Mexico to Elijio and Basilia Valdez.
He was loved and admired not only by his family, but by all those that knew him and got to know him. He was a very hard-working man, a great provider and always made sure that his family had everything they needed. In places where he worked, he earned his respect through his great work ethic, responsibility, friendliness and charisma.
He enjoyed life, loved celebrations, had a great sense of humor and made any gathering that much more fun. He loved to sing and dance, especially if there was a good Mariachi. He liked to have a drink of tequila, “the good kind” with his friends. He loved his wife’s pozole and no meal was complete without a spicy jalapeño.
He liked to travel to Mexico and California to enjoy time with his family and friends. He also really valued his health. Every morning he started off with his personally designed nutritional shake. He loved fruit and always picked the sweetest, best kind. He also went for evening walks with his wife.
Jesus is survived by his wife Rosalinda Valdez; daughter Helianta Negrini; grandson Giovanni Negrini; 4 brothers and 8 sisters; numerous nephews and nieces.
He is preceded in death by his parents Elijio and Basilia Valdez, sister Lupita and uncles Jose, Benjamin and Jesus Lopez.
Jesus will always be remembered as a perfect gentleman. He is incomparable, will be forever missed and forever in our hearts.
