Juan was a devoted member of St. Therese Catholic Church and the Guadalupana Society. He loved Bingo, his yard and especially playing cards with his family. He retired from Kennecott Copper after 27 years of service.

"Padre eterno te imploramos que recibes el alma de nuestro Padre, Juan Benito, un hombre honorable que nos enseno el buen camino. Con su buen ejemplo nos enseno a respetar unos a otros, carino pora todos, y el orgullo de ser Hispano. Papa te amamos, y te haremos menos para siempre. Papa hoy tu companera te espera en el cielo."

Our dad, though small in stature was the strength of our family. He had a kind and gentle heart and instilled in his children the values of respect, love and pride. Now that Dad and Mom have been joyfully reunited, we know in our hearts that they will still watch over us. We love you, Dad. Thank you Dear Lord for blessing us with such special parents.
