Dec. 22, 1955-June 12, 2019

Jose A. Carrizales Jr., age 63, of Delta passed away June 12, 2019, at The University of Toledo Medical Center.

He was born in Mercedes Texas Dec. 22, 1955, to the late Jose A. Carrizales Sr. and Olga (Ramos) Carrizales. Jose graduated from Delta High School in 1974, where he excelled at wrestling — qualifying for the state tournament his senior year. He then attended Defiance College, where once again he wrestled.

Before retiring Jose worked for Campbell Soup Co. for more than 25 years. With his passion for the sport, he served as the Napoleon High School wrestling coach from 1988-96 and started the Napoleon Wrestling Club. Other hobbies included reading, golfing, spending time with his granddaughters and following the Delta Wrestling program, while supporting his son and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Jose was preceded in death by his brothers, Jose and Samuel Carrizales.

He is survived by his children, Catrina (Tom) Bindos of New Jersey, Danny (Amanda) Carrizales of Swanton and Averey Tressler of Arizona; brothers, Jorge (Trena) Carrizales and Daniel Carrisalez; sisters, Diana Carrizales, Dina (Lisa) Carrisalez and Leticia Carrizales; granddaughters, Lyla and Lara Belle Carrizales.

Friends will be received Monday, June 17, 2019, from 6–7 p.m. at the Delta Assembly of God, 405 W. Main St., Delta, Ohio 43515, where a service celebrating Jose’s life will begin at 7 p.m. Pastor Scott Kirsh will be officiating. Arrangements and cremation have been entrusted to Barnes Funeral Chapel, 5825 State Route 109 in Delta. Interment will be private for the family.
