José Luis González Md

October 21, 1953 — December 8, 2022

José Luis González MD (DOB 10/21/1953), passed on December 8th, 2022 surrounded by loved ones in his home in Rockford, Illinois after a long, hard-fought battle with Alzheimers. 


He is survived by his loving wife, Maggie, and three children, Jose (Daughter-in-law: Mary Beth, Grandchildren: Sophia, Chiara, Dominic and Faustina), Diego (Daughter-in-law: Maeve, Grandchildren: Isla and Maya), Lorena (Son-in-law: David). He will remain alive in our hearts as a loving husband and father, loyal friend, well-respected neonatologist, and a man who was always the life of the party.


For those who knew him, he will be remembered for his generous spirit, guiding words, and ability to make all who crossed his path feel special. Even in illness, his positive and supportive nature gave him ways to find joy and fulfillment in life. He welcomed all into his home with a warm embrace and reminded us of the beauty of enjoying the ride and finding gratitude even in the midst of hardship.


His family is deeply appreciative for the support and care José received from his in-home caretakers, Dr. Michalsen and the United Hospice team.


A Gathering of Family and Friends will be held Monday, December 12, 2022 from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. at Fitzgerald Funeral Home & Crematory, 1860 S. Mulford Rd. Rockford, IL 61108. A Memorial Service will begin at 6:00 p.m. also at the funeral home.
