Just a little over a week ago the Harrison Fest Committee honored Jose Morillo as a Country Honoree.  Jose walked in the Harrison Fest Parade and participated in the Queens Gala and 175th Anniversary Gala Dinner.

Jose passed away suddenly this past week from complications from a stroke.  Jose was 32 years old. There are no words that can express the sorrow of such a loss of a husband, father and Harrisonian. 

A wake will be held at the Mulligan Funeral Home in Harrison tomorrow September 30, 2015 from 2 pm to 8 pm.  A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Stephen's Church in Kearny on Friday, October 1, 2015 at 11:30 a.m.

James Hague, from The Observer, wrote a very nice tribute to Jose Morillo in the September 29th Edition of the The Observer.  The tribute captures how special Jose Morillo was and how his presence will be missed by his wife Amy Nicosia Morillo, his children, family and friends.

Our condolences to the Morillo family for their sudden loss of a wonderful human being.
