ALSACE PACHECO - Juan Arturo Of Buffalo, entered into rest February 24, 2014, age 82. Beloved husband of Ramona O. (nee Camacho) for 62 years; devoted father of Juan (Nancy), Tamara (Gary), Ralph (Christine) and the late Mayda; cherished grandfather of Demetrius, Renee, Mayda, Andrew, John, Madelyn and Lianna; dear brother of Enrique (Ana) Alsace. No prior visitation. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Rose of Lima Church, 500 Parker Ave., Buffalo on Thursday morning at 9:30 o'clock. Juan was a self made man who immigrated to the United States from the Dominican Republic to make a better life for his family. He was a hard worker, a man who made sure his family never wanted. He was smart, loved a good joke, and enjoyed nothing more than a good book and a glass of wine. He passed on his appreciation of education to his children. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Juan's memory to Literacy New York Buffalo-Niagara, 1 Lafayette Square, Buffalo, NY 14203 or www.literacybuffalo.org Arrangements by the LOMBARDO FUNERAL HOME (City Chapel).
