Condolence: I had the good fortune to work for José for two years at the Department of Foreign Affairs.

He was a first class gentleman - decent, honest and blessed with a wry sense of humour.

It was a pleasure to know Jose, and I extend my sympathies to his family.

Condolence: Nous avons fait la connaissance de José à Lima durant un devoir temporaire qu'il réalisait à l'époque (début des années 1980). Susan était déjà en poste à l'Ambassade, une fille énergétique comme pas une! Ils y ont fait connaissance et la vie a suivi son cours. Nous les avons croisés à l'occasion au fil des années. Nous conservons de José le meilleur des souvenirs. Triste de voir la maladie faucher si tôt un bonhomme si agréable.
Toutes nos sympathies à Susan, aux enfants et au reste de la famille.

Condolence: When I met José at Assumption Prep in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1967, I knew I was befriending someone for life and beyond. He was my brother Alfredo's roommate and a fine young gentleman sporting his forever smile. As the years passed, we lost track of each other but not for long as we eventually met up again in Panama when he was the Canadian Ambassador here. How grateful to see him again and learn of his successes in life! Now it's time to say au revoir, hasta luego dear friend, our condolences to all his dear family and friends.

Condolence: C'est avec beaucoup de tristesse que nous avons appris le décès de José. Nous étions des collègues de promotion des Affaires extérieures, en 1981. Nous nous sommes revus à l'occasion par la suite à l'étranger ou à Ottawa. Il était toujours souriant et affable. Lui et Susan formaient un couple exceptionnel. On riait beaucoup avec eux. Nos plus sincères condoléances à Susan et à la famille
