Juan was a loving Husband, Father, Grandpa, and Great-Grandpa. He was born on September 2, 1932 in Phoenix, Arizona.

He was employed in various occupations throughout his life (railroad worker, union worker with Cesar Chavez, cotton gin worker, foreman, and as a maintenance worker in a convalescent hospital). As hard as he worked, he made sure that he spent quality time with his family, having family BBQs and taking family trips to Mexico to see
