VICTORVILLE, Calif. — Joseph Diaz passed away peacefully at home on 8/28/19 at the age of 91. He served in the Coast Guard, the Navel Reserves and worked at Southwest Portland Cement in Victorville for 30 plus years. He became a Correctional officer at age 58, eventually retiring from there and continued working as a security guard until he was 82.
To say he had a strong work ethic is an understatement. He could be cantankerous but had a heart of gold.
He is survived by his wife of 25 years Sally Diaz of Colton, his son Mark Diaz (Becky) of Riverside, daughter Sandy Diaz (Bill) of Oxnard, son Juan Alegria (Nancy) of Redlands, son Gabriel Alegria of Oklahoma and a brother Felix Diaz from Victorville.
He leaves behind several grandchildren, great-grandchildren and extended family. He was preceded in death by his first wife Olegaria and his brothers Frank and Lupe.
Graveside services for Joe Diaz will be at 10:00 am on September 10, 2019, at Victor Valley Memorial Park in Victorville. All friends and family are welcome to attend.
