Juan can be best described as an Amazing Dad and Granddad who was full of life, enjoyed life to the maximum and had no enemies. Juan adored and was completely devoted to his beautiful wife Susy for 51 years. She was his best friend and was always by her side. His 3 Grandchildren lovingly referred to him as Bito and has described him as the most kind hearted, genuine, sweetest and perfect man on this Earth. Juan made sure he provided the best life for his family by working hard for so many years. Juan loved the sales process of helping people and was excellent at his craft. If you only knew Juan for a minute, it would be evident that God and Family were the most important things in life for him. As long as his family was together, he knew we could get through any circumstance. Juan loved being on his boat visiting islands in Venezuela and many of his favorite stories talked about his experiences. He also enjoyed a great meal and cocktail. His signature phrase was: Ah, this is sooo sooo gooood. The next time you have a great meal, remember Juan and his phrase. Juan was also the life of any room and he will continue to shine his light on his family from Heaven. Juan loved to celebrate any moment in life and would encourage you to do the same while living like it is your last day.
Juan will be terribly missed by his friends and family until they are reunited again in Heaven.
