“A devoted husband, father, and soldier”

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Jose Andujar, affectionately known as GI Joe, on May 30, 2024, at the age of 72. At the age of 18, Joe was drafted into the Vietnam War, serving from 1970 to 1971. Joe continued to serve honorably in the National Guard and later participated in Operation Desert Storm from 1990 to 1991. GI Joe also served in the War in Afghanistan in the early 2000s. Joe remained dedicated to his service in the National Guard until his medical retirement in 2012, after over 42 years of military service.

Jose Luis Andujar was born on April 20, 1952, in East Chicago, Indiana, to Juanita Batista and Armando Andujar. Joe spent his free time volunteering in the neighborhood, at the Boys and Girls Club, doing yard work, and spending time with family. A devoted husband, father, and soldier, Jose’s legacy of bravery, love, and commitment will be cherished forever.

Jose was preceded in death by his parents, Juanita Batista and Armando Andujar; his sister, Angela Marie Andujar; and his niece, Daisy Andujar. He is survived by his beloved wife of 25 years, Bertha Andujar; his brother, Alberto Andujar, and wife Milna (Minnie) Andujar; his children, Monica Nelluvelil, Maria (Lupe) Flores, and Gerardo Andujar and wife Jessica Lopez; his grandchild, Joslyn Pollard; and his niece, Monica Rivera, and her sons, Michael and Brandon Rivera.

A visitation for Jose will be held on Tuesday June 4, 2024 from 3pm-7pm. A military service followed by a funeral service will be held at 6pm.  All services will be held at Calumet Park Funeral Chapel, located at 7535 Taft Street, Merrillville, IN 46410.

We appreciate your support through this difficult time.
