One Of The World’s Fattest Men Has Passed Away

October 8, 2008 / Posted by:

Jose Luis Garza, one of the fattest men in the world, has passed on to the great all-you-can-eat buffet in the sky. Jose is NOT to be confused with Manuel Uribe, the world’s fattest man who recently got engaged.

Jose was bedridden in his home in Juarez, Mexico. He recently went on Mexican television and asked for her help. Manuel, who lost 550 pounds himself, regularly spoke to Jose on the phone and was trying to help him lose weight. This past Friday, Manuel even sent his new fiancee to Jose’s home with fruits and a protein supplement.

Some of Jose’s family members have criticized officials for not moving Jose to a hospital before he became critically ill. Over the weekend, Jose complained about having trouble breathing and eating. Emergency officials finally transported him to the hospital yesterday, but it was too late. He was pronounced dead on arrival at the age of 47. He weighed 990-pounds.

Jose was buried yesterday in a specially made coffin.

Rest in peace, Jose…
