Jose Cano Punsalan, 77, born on September 18, 1939 in Macabebe, Pampanga, Philippines, passed away August 5, 2017 at his residence in North Hollywood, California. Better known by his family and friends as Joe or Peping, he is survived by his wife of 14 years, Merlyn, three children from his first marriage, Ronnie, Joyce and Aileen, and five grandchildren, Alexis, Danalux, Hyacinth, Alfonso, and Avery. Additionally, he is survived by his brothers and sisters, Leonila, Josefina, Ricardo, Rafael, and Daniel, and his former spouse, Priscila. Joe lived a long and full life, surrounded by his family and friends. What Joe lacked in monetary and material riches, he gained by the tenfold of loyal family and friends who loved him dearly and unconditionally. Joe would want all who knew him to celebrate his life, not mourn his death.

Arrangements to celebrate the life of Joe are under the direction of Forest Lawn, Hollywood Hills, California.
