Those of us who at various times got the chance to hear Joe Lucio, a member of the Lucio extended clan, play at local watering holes remember him as a competent country and western and Tejano singer and musician.
He played at many locales on and off with his singing mate. He also played frequently at the local Veterans of Foreign Wars where his uncle Louie was the commander, again on and off.
We now have learned that Jose Luis Lucio, 59, died  on Thursday, March 26, 2015, in Houston, Texas. 
If you were at the VFW when Lucio played, you will probably remember that he always included the song "God Bless The USA" by Lee Greenwood to the delight of the vets and non-vets and their spouses and dates who stood up and saluted during the entire rendition.
We will miss Joe and his music and send our condolences to his family and friends.
Rosary will be held at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 30, 2015 at St. Mary's Catholic Church. 
Mass will be held at 10 a.m. at St. Mary's Catholic Church on Tuesday, March 31, 2015. 
The family will release a more detailed obituary on this Sunday's newspaper March 29, 2015.
Funeral arrangements are pending under the care of Funeraria Del Angel Buena Vista cemeteries and mausoleums. 125 McDavitt Blvd. in Brownsville,. (956) 541-5400.

He was a very nice man and we will miss him. It appears that god wanted a good singer in heaven to sing with angels.
