I learned of this by conducting a Google search of my own name. Juan was married to my mother Barbara and is my biological father that I hadn't seen in over 40 yrs. I am sorry to hear this because I imagined at some point I would see him again. I am sorry for your loss and will hopefully one day get an opportunity to know some of you.

Roseanne, I'm so sorry to hear about John. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. So glad that John was able to be in his grandkids lives. They will remember him, I'm sure. May the good memories you have help ease the sorrow of his struggles and his passing. With my deepest sympathy

Was a Great Mentor for all New LSA's. Always took time to answer a question or tell a joke or two. Greatly missed. Rest in Peace Juan!

EVERY time I saw him, at work, he ALWAYS had a smile on his face. Made everyone he came in contact with smile, too! Prayers go out to his family!

Juan had an engaging personality. Made you feel like you were part of his family. Always spoke dearly of his wife and how they set time apart to spend time with each other. He was crazy about his granddaughter and his family. He not only had an engaging personality, but he had a contagious belly aching laugh. It was a laughter that made you laugh without even knowing what you were laughing about. He will be missed not only as a co-worker, but as a friend and a brother.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I saw Juan every morning and night for several years while at work. We worked the same day, just on different days. Me, him, and Kenny. The commissary people called us "The Three Stooges" because we got along so well. Great guy. He will be missed."Do you not know that a man is not dead while his name is still spoken?" -Terry Pratchett

Juan (as he was known at Amtrak) was very passionate about Amtrak, Politics, his home and Family. I first met Juan in the Chicago Debriefing Dept where he would turn in his paperwork for reconciliation after a trip. He loved to engage us in conversation, and would captivate everyone in his presence. Juan would tell us about his Family, cooking, his garden and his home projects. One day he was telling us about a delicious meal he had made Puerto Rican pork chops and rice. Well after that mouth watering description, we begged Juan to make it for us. To our surprise, he did!!!! Boy Oh Boy...... it was DELICIOUS!!!! Thanks Juan for the stories, the friendship and the garden fresh cilantro!!!! Rest In Heaven my friend!
