Jose Enrique Ruacho, age 36 passed on to his heavenly reward Tuesday, April 14, 2020.

He was born Sept. 17, 1983, in Santa Maria del oro, Durango, Mexico, to Adelaido and Maria Ruacho. There he was baptized at a young age, before moving to Chicago, IL where he lived until the age of 13. From there, his family’s travels brought them to Cokato, MN.

Jose graduated from Dassel-Cokato High School, where he met his high school sweetheart, Bobbi Jo Moy. The two were married June 3, 2005, in Buffalo, MN.

Jose and Bobbi Jo made their home in Howard Lake, with their three children; Isabella, Devin, and Bentley. Jose was the best husband and father any one could ask for.

Jose was employed with Mumford Sanitation and enjoyed working for the company and with his co-workers from 2004 until 2020.

He was a hard worker; and devoted and loving husband and father. His wife, children, and family always came first. He enjoyed going to his kids’ activities; watching and attending football games, and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need.

Jose had an appreciation for cars, and loved to drive his 1997 Lincoln whenever possible.

Jose fought a strong battle with optimism and had a smile for everyone he encountered. He maintained his positive attitude until his passing.

Jose is survived at his home by his wife Bobbi Jo, daughter

Isabella, and sons Devin and Bentley, as well as his parents Adelaido and Maria Ruacho, and brothers Felipe and Noel.

Swanson-Peterson Funeral Home and Cremation Service, is serving the family.
