(en) [Spain] Obituary: José Manuel González (1953-2019) By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Yesterday[27/01]Joseph left us. Fellow in struggle and friend in life that leaves an indelible mark among those who have had the privilege of sharing with him one or more facets of his life. ---- At an age (65 years) that is considered "early" in these times, the implacable death has taken it from us. A short life, yes, but intense. Both at work and in social commitment for which he never disliked. ---- Born in troubled times (1953) and member of a large family, five brothers -Logo, like many of his contemporaries, had to make their way in life the best way possible. And despite something studied, he had to eat. So ... your work life started early. Working in construction and especially in the assembly, he had to "brave" more than half of the peninsula in order to sustain themselves until well into the 80s, entered the factory of the former ENSIDESA Veriña, who developed his professional work until he was retired due to disability, because of the "wear" to which he submitted the work. At the same time, it increased and strengthened a "class consciousness" that kept until the last breath.

Whoever took 40 years or more in the CNT can remember that already in 1976, even in the underground, militating in the Gijonesa Organization (first Union of the Construction and later in the Metal). And he was a militant who never abounded: Committed, Committed, Serious, Consistent, Methodical - organizing accounts or files, there were not many like him, which did not stop him from being in the street fight or in the workplace from where he never dodged. And always in a position to "participate" and provide whatever was in your hand.

On different occasions, he held various positions in the Confederal Organization, both locally and regionally, without anyone being opposed to the management tasks undertaken.

Leaving a son, Hector, who gave him a grandson and the greatest joys of his life in recent years, and a companion, Julia, with a long biological family, and a very large Confederal family, between which leaves a void that will be very difficult, if not impossible, to replace.

Although we know that "death is the end of life" that we are inevitably going to face, we are not few who think that "there are people who should never die." And this good could be one of the cases.

For those of us who have known and shared experiences, it will never cease to be a reference and an example to follow. Yes, that leaves us with a great emptiness. But at the same time, many teachings that, in the end, will help us to ensure that your efforts are not a waste.

If, among us, we often say that "the earth is light to you," it will not be the case. Of the four natural elements, in the end he had no air. And he chose fire. They say that "fire purifies." But as in Joseph there is nothing to purify, we have no choice but to desire that "the fire give you the warmth you undoubtedly deserve."
