Jose Luis is preceded in death by his parents, his wife Natalia Martinez Morales, and two brothers: Santos Morales, Jr., and Alberto Mancha.

Jose moved to Hereford in 1963 and met his future wife, Natalia Martinez. The two were married on August 29, 1970, in Hereford and settled to raise their family. He worked for Frito Lay for over 15 years and then spent the next 20 years as night watchman for Seven X in Summerfield, Texas. He was a hardworking family man; he and his family were parishioners at San Jose Church. In his spare time, he loved to hunt and fish. He was a friend to all and loved to make others laugh with his jokes and engaging smile. Jose Luis was Father of the Year in Hereford in 1998, and especially enjoyed his time with his family.

He is survived by his brother, Isabel “Cuvano” and wife Gloria Morales of Hereford, Texas, and four sisters: Maria and husband Demetrio Zuniga of Hereford, Texas, Eusebia Morales of Lubbock, Texas, Alicia Morales of Amarillo, Texas, and Maria Magdalena and husband Baldemar Rodriguez of McAllen, Texas.

Jose also leaves behind a daughter and three sons: Griselda and husband Johnny Garza and their children Joshua, Jacob, Johnny Jr., and Jaelyn Garza of Hereford, Texas, Jose A. Morales of Hereford, Texas, Miguel and his son Marcus Morales of Hereford, Texas, and Danny and his children Nathan, Deja, and Alexis Morales of Hereford, Texas. One great-granddaughter, Raelynne Garza, daughter of Joshua Garza, also survives him. In addition, he leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews, all of whom love and will miss him greatly.
