September 16, 1978 — September 1, 2020


José Raul Medina Aviles, 41, passed away unexpectedly at his home in Harrisburg on Tuesday, September 1, 2020.

Born September 16, 1978 in Ponce, Puerto Rico, he was the son of Raul Medina Montalvo and the late Maria Mercedes Aviles Perez.

A landscaper by trade, José was a hard worker and well-loved for his humor and good heart and well known for how meticulous he was about his cars.

He was a history buff, and enjoyed movies and books on any historical subject.

In addition to his father, he is survived by two sisters: Maria Medina (and husband, Leonard Rodriguez) and Yazmin Pabon (and husband, Jean Carlos Pabon); two brothers: José Antonio Medina and Juan Perez; many nieces and nephews; and a host of other family members and friends.
