Juan enjoyed landscaping, gardening and most of all, spending time with his family. He was a jack of all trades and could fix just about anything. Juan was always there for everyone and never put himself first. If someone needed a helping hand, Juan was always there to help. He was a jokester at times and would really show his comedic side. He was really known for how sweet and humble he truly was. A God-fearing man, Juan was very passionate of his faith and that made him the man and role model he set out to be.
