Joseph (Joe) Medrano Jr. was born January 14, 1928 from the late Joseph Medrano Sr. and Juanita Jamie Medrano. Joe was a devoted husband, a loving father, the sweetest grand and great grandfather, a wise friend, but above all he was a humble faithful servant of God and believed wholeheartedly in being kind to one another. His message was simple: take care of each other and love one another. As a young man, Joe proudly served in the Army as a MP. He earned an honorable reputation where he was awarded a metal. In addition to being a proud veteran, Joe worked for Union Carbide where he retired in 1997. He joyfully married his beloved wife Delphine Medrano in 1962 where they created a beautiful home in Victoria, TX.

Joe is also the brother of Jean Vega (Larry) and the late Mary Jane Ortiz (Joe). On the morning of June 4, 2018, Joe returned home to join the Lord and his youngest daughter Patsy.
