José was born in the distant town of Caraguatay, son of Eustaquio and Ezequiela Aquino. At the age of 20 he migrated to the United States where he lived the rest of his life. He was a hard-working man, being the teacher of many in his field.

José was a man of countless qualities, but most important of all, he was an exemplary father and the best grandfather.

A José le sobreviven su compañero de vida, Nimia Chaparro; sus hijos, José Luis y Sarah Aquino; sus dos nietos Lennon y Liam Jiménez; y sus 4 hermanos y 3 hermanas. 

José nació en el pueblo lejano de Caraguatay, hijo de Eustaquio y Ezequiela Aquino. A los 20 años migró a los estados unidos donde vivió el resto de su vida. Fue un hombre trabajador, siendo el maestro de muchos en su rubro.

José era un hombre de innumerables cualidades, pero lo más importante de todos, fue un padre ejemplar y el mejor abuelo.
