Jose Alberto Carranza

Jose Alberto Carranza, age 52, of Bartlett, passed away Thursday, Aug. 29, 2019.

Jose also known as Joe Chaquito, he was a very simple man. He was the life of the party and could make anyone laugh with his jokes he always told. He had a story to tell for any occasion. Joe loved to hang out with friends and family and listen to music and dance and would call himself “Jiggy Joe” since he had great dance moves.

His pride and joy was his baby girl, Celicia Carranza. He loved her so much and would always brag about how smart and beautiful she is.

Jo Chaquito will truly be missed by all of us. Rest in peace and sleep with the angels.

He was preceded in death by his father, Raphael Carranza; and three brothers, Merced Carranza, Juan Carranza and Martin Carranza.

Jose is survived by his long-term partner, Angela Johnson; daughter, Celicia Carranza; mother, Alicia Carranza; five brothers, Pedro Carranza, Fidel Carranza, Lorenzo Carranza, Rosolio Carranza and Ableardo Carranza. He is also survived by four sisters, Aurora Hernandez, Martha Salazar, Paula Guana and Audelia Sifuentes.
