Jesus Franco Obituary

Jesus Beltran Franco, a cherished family man, skilled carpenter, and lover of life's simple pleasures, passed away peacefully on January 14, 2024, in Orange, California, at the age of 90. Born on September 1, 1933, in Jalisco, Mexico, Jesus's early years were marked by a spirited childhood surrounded by the vibrant culture of his homeland.

Jesus's life was a testament to his enduring work ethic and passion for craftsmanship. He spent his entire life honing the art of carpentry, a trade that not only supported his family but also brought him immense personal satisfaction. In 1967, at the age of 34, Jesus embarked on a journey to the United States, seeking new opportunities and a bright future for his loved ones.

Jesus's legacy is lovingly carried on by his extensive family, including his five daughters, Martha Beltran, Maria C. Jurado, Maria R. Perez, Maria J. Beltran, and Maria L. Moliere; his two sons, Juan and David Beltran; his brother, Jose Beltran; his 18 grandchildren, Darlene, Ariana, Mizel, Joe, Robert, Rachel, Roland, Anthony, Lisa, Brenda, Charlene, Johnny, David, Raul, Albert, Nicky, Kevin, and Alejandra; and his 24 great-grandchildren, who brought him immeasurable joy and pride.

A man of varied interests, Jesus's love for soccer was only matched by his green thumb and his enjoyment of nurturing his plants. His keen eye for special finds made his visits to the flea market an exciting adventure, always on the lookout for treasures. Jesus's mornings were incomplete without his beloved coffee of course with Sweet N Low, setting the tone for a day.


In his younger years, Jesus was known as a "Gallero," raising and preparing roosters for cockfights in Mexico, a tradition that showcased his competitive spirit and deep connection to his cultural roots. However, the simple joys in life brought him the most contentment. A perfect day for Jesus would unfold with the aroma of coffee, breakfast at Cowgirls Cafe, and then off to the swap meet.

Jesus's love for his family was evident in the way he cherished spending time with them, often treating the grandchildren to dollar bills for ice cream, a small gesture that encapsulated his generous heart. The sizzle of carne asada on the grill was a familiar sound at family gatherings, a meal he would happily indulge in every day.

Those who knew Jesus will remember him as a friendly soul, always ready with a helping hand and a warm smile. His generosity knew no bounds, and his ability to fix and build was only surpassed by his capacity to love and give.

Jesus Beltran Franco lived a full life, marked by the joy of simple pleasures, the fulfillment of a job well done, and the love of a family that grew with each passing year. He leaves behind a legacy of kindness, skill, and generosity that will continue to inspire and live on in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing him. As we bid farewell to Jesus, we celebrate a life well-lived and a man well-loved.

Obituario de Jesús Franco


Jesús Beltrán Franco, un querido padre de familia, hábil carpintero y amante de los placeres simples de la vida, falleció pacíficamente el 14 de enero de 2024 en Orange, California, a la edad de 90 años. Nació el 1 de septiembre de 1933 en Jalisco, México. , los primeros años de Jesús estuvieron marcados por una infancia animada rodeada de la vibrante cultura de su tierra natal.

La vida de Jesús fue un testimonio de su ética de trabajo duradera y su pasión por la artesanía. Pasó toda su vida perfeccionando el arte de la carpintería, un oficio que no sólo sustentaba a su familia sino que también le brindaba una inmensa satisfacción personal. En 1967, a la edad de 34 años, Jesús emprendió un viaje a los Estados Unidos, buscando nuevas oportunidades y un futuro brillante para sus seres queridos.

El legado de Jesús lo continúa con amor su extensa familia, incluidas sus cinco hijas, Martha Beltrán, María C. Jurado, María R. Pérez, María J. Beltrán y María L. Moliere; sus dos hijos, Juan y David Beltrán; su hermano, José Beltrán; sus 18 nietos, Darlene, Ariana, Mizel, Joe, Robert, Rachel, Roland, Anthony, Lisa, Brenda, Charlene, Johnny, David, Raul, Albert, Nicky, Kevin y Alejandra; y sus 24 bisnietos, quienes le trajeron una alegría y un orgullo inconmensurables.

Un hombre de intereses variados, el amor de Jesús por el fútbol solo era comparable con su habilidad para la jardinería y su disfrute de cuidar sus plantas. Su buen ojo para los hallazgos especiales hacía de sus visitas al mercadillo una aventura apasionante, siempre en busca de tesoros. Las mañanas de Jesús estaban incompletas sin su amado café, por supuesto, con Sweet N Low, marcando la pauta de un día.


En su juventud, Jesús era conocido como "Gallero", criando y preparando gallos para peleas de gallos en México, una tradición que mostraba su espíritu competitivo y su profunda conexión con sus raíces culturales. Sin embargo, las alegrías sencillas de la vida le proporcionaban la mayor satisfacción. Un día perfecto para Jesús se desarrollaría con el aroma del café, el desayuno en Cowgirls Café y luego el camino al mercado de intercambio.

El amor de Jesús por su familia era evidente en la forma en que valoraba pasar tiempo con ellos, a menudo regalando a sus nietos billetes de un dólar para comprar helado, un pequeño gesto que resumía su corazón generoso. El chisporroteo de la carne asada en la parrilla era un sonido familiar en las reuniones familiares, una comida que felizmente disfrutaba todos los días.

Quienes conocieron a Jesús lo recordarán como un alma amiga, siempre dispuesta a ayudar y con una cálida sonrisa. Su generosidad no conoció límites, y su capacidad de arreglar y construir sólo fue superada por su capacidad de amar y dar.

Jesús Beltrán Franco vivió una vida plena, marcada por la alegría de los placeres sencillos, la realización del trabajo bien hecho y el amor de una familia que crecía cada año. Deja un legado de bondad, habilidad y generosidad que continuará inspirando y viviendo en los corazones de quienes tuvieron el privilegio de conocerlo. Al despedirnos de Jesús, celebramos una vida bien vivida y un hombre bien amado.
