Pepe had a lifetime career as a professional painter in a union and then in family enterprise until his passing. Pepe loved his family, soccer, flamenco, good food, and wine. On a Saturday, you would find him watching Barcelona FC games with his biggest fans. He often told stories that made you laugh until you cried. Those who knew him will always remember him. He lived life how he loved it - to the fullest.
