Gillies Funeral Chapel


Jose F. Ranjel

March 9, 1985 ~ July 25, 2017

Funeral services: Friday, August 4, at 12 p.m. at Gillies Funeral Chapel


Our loving son and brother passed away unexpectedly on July 25, 2017. Jose was an uncle to 28 nieces and nephews and was a fun-loving friend to so many. He was definitely the life of the party. He enjoyed music, dancing and making every one he knew laugh. He lit up the room with his fun personality. Jose had so many talents, he could draw anything for you, and then want to tattoo it on you; he could cut your hair, and then want to style it for you; and he could tell you what to wear and then dress you for the occasion. He had moves and would teach everyone how to move with him. No matter the situation, Jose always made the people around him feel better. He truly tried to see the best in life and tried to live it to the fullest. Jose will be remembered for his spunk, for his laughter, his personality and for the way he treated all who crossed his path. Jose is preceded in death by his father, his grandmother and his sweet nephew. He is survived by his loving mother, whom he loved dearly, Maria Ranjel; brother, John (Lana) Ranjel; four sisters, Dora (Mark) Olsen. Dianne (Ron) Vandiver, Michelle (Brandon) Romer, and Monica (Mariano) Martinez. Life will never be the same without you! We love you, Jose. Funeral services will be held Friday, August 4, at 12 p.m. at Gillies Funeral Chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made at the Box Elder Credit Union to the account "In memory of Jose Ranjel" to help with funeral expenses.
