A loving husband, father to six, grandfather and great-grandfather, peacefully passed away Wednesday, April 24, 2019, surrounded with his loving family and friends at his bedside.
Joe was a loving, caring, hardworking provider for his family. His career started as a painter — mostly residential and commercial, but it did not stop there; if Joe could spray it, he would — from cars, trucks, and big rigs to horse trailers, just about everything. Joe also enjoyed a good game of kick the can with his family. He loved horse races and fishing.
Joe is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Elaine Soto; his children Mark, Valerie Buress-Aaron, Jesse, Marcus, Jordan, Jayden, Jojo Soto Lavina, Lilianna, Roman, Greg Soto, Alicia Harvey, Jessica Alcala, Brittany, Angel, Eva, Harvey Jr., Shawn Soto, Mariah Shawn Jr., Nico, Tany Marie Soto, Jaydee, Celena, Elaina, Diego, Xavier, Maricia, Arrianna, Marquez Soto; great-grandkids Darian, Prince, Fabian, Jaden, Lorenzo, Atli; and best friend Ray Jewel, The Lawyer.
