He loved grilling, working on his 1957 GMC, watching his grandkids play sports, working in their garden, riding his tractor, and spending time with his family and friends and loved the Lord with all his heart. He was so loving and creative, he was there for anyone who needed help and always made a friend anywhere he went, he always made an impression and loved without saying a word. You will be missed more than you know. We were blessed to have you and I wish we had more time. Thank you for loving us unconditionally and showing us how to love others.
Juan leaves behind a legacy of serving his community by his selfless help to others and his country as a Vietnam Veteran. His humor, smiles and caring of others will be missed beyond words. The family would like to extend their appreciation for all the thoughts and prayers.
