Juan was a force of nature, committed to provide for his beautiful and large family. His family was his pride and joy. When his children were young, they would travel to numerous campgrounds in their RV. They would go as far as Orlando FL and Canada.
Juan was a very funny man and loved to play pranks on most people he came in contact with, from his family and friends to nurses at his appointments. He loved telling and listening to jokes. Aside from his humor he had much knowledge to share, especially about home improvement ideas. He was quite the handyman. Another fascination of his was reading about UFO’s, Condorito, also watching Tom and Jerry and Scooby Doo. He was a passionate WWE fan and could be found weekly watching Monday Night Raw.
