José Orlando Gómez, conocido cariñosamente como Rollo por sus amigos y familiares, falleció el 3 de enero de 2024.

José era un hombre de muchos talentos. Trabajó en Wachusett Potato Chip Factory durante muchos años, donde sus colegas lo conocían como una persona confiable y trabajadora. La dedicación de José a su trabajo fue incomparable y era una de las cosas que más le importaban. Incluso después de su jubilación, José se mantuvo ocupado entregándose a sus pasatiempos: el detalle de automóviles y la música. Su pasión por estos pasatiempos era contagiosa y siempre estaba dispuesto a compartir una risa o una melodía. Como cristiano, se mantuvo firme en el versículo de Colosenses 3:23: "Hagas lo que hagas, trabaja en ello con todo tu corazón, como trabajando para el Señor, no para los amos humanos", que resume perfectamente su enfoque de la vida.

Su resiliencia y humor trajeron luz y alegría a quienes lo rodeaban, convirtiéndolo en un faro de positividad y fortaleza.
