Longtime Alaskan Jorge P. Bravo died Saturday, June 9, 2007, at South Peninsula Hospital in Homer. He was 35.
Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. today, Friday, June 15, at Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai. Viewing will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. today at the funeral home. Burial will follow the service at the Kenai City Cemetery. Pastors Elias Lopez and Hugo Lozano will officiate.
Mr. Bravo was born Sept. 15, 1971, in Tijuana, Mexico. He moved to Kenai in 1982 and attended school there. He worked for Alpha Fur Dressers and Bravo Boat Repair, the family business. He moved to Anchorage and was a member of La Luz Del Mundo Church in Anchorage. He enjoyed working out, baseball, soccer, basketball and football. He also enjoyed putting models together and drawing.
“He was a wonderful husband, father, son, brother and friend. He loved his kids and going out with his wife. He was always there whenever you needed a friend. He always tried to be the best father and was. He was strong and loved to lead rather than follow. He knew when to laugh and have fun, but he also knew when it was time to be serious. You don’t know what you have until you lose it. We only wish that we were able to tell him how great he was and how much we love him,” his family said.
Mr. Bravo was preceded in death by his father, Jose Bravo Sr.; and brother, Jose Bravo Jr.
He is survived by his wife, Lucia Bravo; children, Noemi Bravo, Jorge Jose Bravo, Jessica Carreon, Lucy Carreon and Jazmin Carreon of Anchorage; mother, Maria Bravo; sisters, Monica Moe, and her husband, Ben, of Kenai, Isabel Mariscal and husband, Alejandro, of Anchorage, Betty Bravo of San Jose, Calif., and Patty Bravo of Wasilla; brothers, Noe Bravo and Jesus Bravo and his wife, Kathy, of Kenai; numerous nieces and nephews; and several cousins.
