Jose Dolores Buenrostro

June 1940 ~ August 2018_x000D_
Jose Dolores Buenrostro was born in San Martin Mexico in May of 1940.  He was the middle son of a large family of twelve brothers and sisters.  Our dad had to work hard since he was young because his father passed away when he was a child.

After courting our mother they fell in love and he decided to make his way to California to provide a better life for his wife.  Our dad was a cook and chef for twenty-five years at Pea Soup Anderson and cooking was one of his passions.  He took pleasure in the simple things in life, for example, working hard to provide for his wife and four son’s, spending time with his family and grandkids, finding simple excuses to cook and get the family together as much as possible. Our parents’ biggest joys are the grandkids, always making them laugh and smile with pride.

He also took joy in helping his brothers and sisters and family in Mexico.  Visiting with our relatives in Mexico always reminding us where we come from, our home town in San Martin, Jalisco.  He reminded us that the family and friends was the most important things in life. You depend on them and they can depend on you.

Simple things in life bought him joy.


Jos Dolores Buenrostro nació en San Martín Hidalgo Jalisco Mexico en Mayo de 1940. Era un hijo de una familia de doce hermanos y hermanas. Nuestro padre tuvo que trabajar mucho de joven porque su padre falleció cuando era un niño.

Despus de conquistar a nuestra madre, se enamoraron y decidieron irse a California para buscar una vida mejor. Nuestro Papá era chef por veinticinco años en Pea Soup Anderson y la cocina era una de sus pasiones.  Se deleitaba con las cosas simples de la vida, por ejemplo, trabajando duro para mantener a su esposa y cuatro hijos. Pasar el tiempo con su familia y sus nietos y encontrar excusas simples para cocinar y reunir a la familia.  Las alegrías más grandes de nuestros padres son los nietos, siempre hacindolos reír y sonreír con orgullo.

Tambin le daba alegría y satisfacción ayudar a sus hermanos y familiares en Mxico. Visitar con ellos y siempre nos recordaba de dónde venimos, nuestra ciudad natal en San Martín, Jalisco. Él nos recordaba que la familia y los amigos eran las cosas más importantes en la vida. Usted depende de ellos y ellos pueden depender de usted.

Las cosas simples de la vida le hicieron feliz.
