Jose Luis Texidor Masso, 65, passed on into heavens gates on Thursday, April 18, 2019. Many of you may have known him as Jose but family and close friends knew him as "chegui."

He spent a few years as a language interpreter at the Westfield City Hall. He also gave a few years working tobacco. Of all his life's work, his greatest devotion was being a man of God as he practiced his religion deeply with his community at St. Mary's Church in Westfield.

He had a great love for sports, a devout Patriots fan and WWE but mostly baseball.
