Jose Pagan Obituary

Jose Pagan, age 42, born on December 22, 1980 tragically passed away from a motorcycle accident on Thursday October 26, 2023 less than a mile away from his home in Florida.

Jose who was known to friends by "Ready" or "Blondy" grew up in Lawrence, Mass and attended Lawrence High School. He eventually made his way down to Fort Myers, Florida where he started to develop a passion for fitness, motorcycles, and fashion.

He resided with the love of his life (who he married twice) Joan-Marie Pagan and his beloved dog, Rambo. Jose is survived by a large family including his five children; Yazlin, Jonathan, Josiah, Dominic, and Mateo. His step-children Xzavier, Jerry, Chance, and Legion. Also, his mother Carmen Castro, his father Jose Pagan, siblings Joel, Luis, Ceegee, Heidi, Alfonzo, and Antonio. He has extended family and friends through out Massachusetts, Florida, and Puerto Rico where he recently traveled to visit. 

Jose was known to be funny and friendly. He loved music and was quite creative himself. He had a passion for cooking, specifically creating and sharing new recipes with his loved ones. When he wasn’t cooking, he enjoyed getting in a good work out with his friends and trainer at {Iron Heart Gym} and was in the best physical shape of his life. Whatever free time he had that didn’t involve cooking or working out, he spent riding or fixing his motorcycle with his loving wife. Jose was a vibrant force to be reckoned with. He’d strike up conversations with strangers, always offered smiles and laughs to people in passing and did everything he could to always support those around him. He was very much so a family man who loved hard and spent as much time as possible with his children, wife, mother and siblings. It will be hard to say good bye because where there is deep grief, there was great love, but we know that his soul will carry on...
