Juan Jose Soto Sr.  Obituary
Juan Jose Soto, Sr., 75 passed away on April 12, 2018 in Alamogordo, New Mexico. He was born on 12/27/1942 in Laredo TX, to Amelia Paredes.
He enlisted in the Army when he was 18 years old. He then enlisted in the Air Force and retired as a Master Sergeant after 26 years of service. Among some of his tours were a remote one year tour in Alaska, six months in Honduras, and six months in Egypt. He was very proud to serve his country in the Air Force. After retiring he enjoyed life to the fullest. He was a huge car enthusiast. It was the thing that brought him the most joy besides his family. He enjoyed running to Albuquerque as often as he could to see his two sons and two grandkids. He stayed in close touch with his daughters Angie and Candida and also his grandson Tony. He never met a stranger, he made a friend of everyone. He was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan.
He is survived by two sons, Juan J. Soto, Jr. and wife Marie, and Eric L. Soto both of Albuquerque; two daughters, Angelica Marie Nissley and husband Pete of Alamogordo, and Candida Peregrin and husband Tony of Pennsylvania; three grandchildren, Jaden and Tristen Soto of Albuquerque, and Tony Peregrin of Arizona. His family was close to him and will greatly miss him, especially his grandkids who loved him so much.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Pedro and Amelia Paredes.
Juan was a great friend to many who are going to miss him dearly.
