Juan Melendez Vargas, charmer, salesman, storyteller, dog lover, outdoorsman, passed away March 30, 2013.
The great thing about our father was his outlook on life and how he lived it. His children will remember his love for a 0.99-cent bag of peanuts, downtown taco stands, and ninja moves. Others will remember him for his kind heart, sweet tooth, great friendship, and smooth negotiating skills. He had a vast knowledge of classic cars and if you needed a roof you called "El Dorado Roofing and Construction". Juan was a very giving person; as his sister said, "You could give him something and he would turn around and give it to someone who needed it more." More importantly, he was a father who had tremendous love for his children and family. He always lived by the motto, "You can't take it with you when you go."
Juan's leaves behind to cherish his memory: parents Jesus Garza and Magdalena Alas; daughters Kristy and Jenny Vargas; son Johnathon Vargas; grandsons Ashton Vargas, Devyn Vargas,and Karder Vargas; seven sisters, three brothers, and numerous nieces and nephews.
