IN REMEMBERANCE OF MR. JUAN N. ACOSTA

MR JUAN N. ACOSTA DAMIAN SR. PASSED AWAY ON MAY 14TH 2018 AT THE AGE OF 99. HE LIVED A BLESSED AND HAPPY LIFE. HE WAS BORN IN PERU, STATE OF LAMBAYEQUE, IN A SMALL TOWN BY THE NAME OF ILLIMO. HE WAS THE YOUNGEST ONE OF HIS FAMILY. AT AN EARLY AGE HE DECIDED TO LOOK FOR A BETTER FUTURE AND ENDED UP IN LIMA, THE CAPITAL OF PERU. ONCE THERE HE WORKED BUILDING ROADS AND EVENTUALLY LEARNED AND BECAME A BARBER AND OPENED HIS OWN BARBERSHOP. HE MET HIS FUTURE WIFE, JULIA CRISPINA GARCIA, AND WERE MARRIED SOON AFTER. TOGETHER THEY CONCEIVED 6 CHILDREN, CONSISTING OF 3 BOYS AND 3 GIRLS (JULIO, JUAN, CLARA, MARIA, VICTORIA AND TED). HIS WIFE ALSO HAD A SON BY THE NAME OF JORGE ENCINAS GARCIA, FROM A PREVIOUS RELATIONSHIP. JUAN ACOSTA RAISED HIM AND CARED FOR HIM AS HIS OWN SON. JORGE ENCINAS BECAME A CIVIL ENGINEER AND DECIDED TO REMAIN IN PERU. TOGETHER, BOTH JUAN AND JULIA, WERE DEDICATED TO ALL 7 CHILDREN AND THEIR MAIN GOAL WAS TO MAKE SURE ALL THE CHILDREN RECEIVE THE EDUCATION NECESSARY IN ORDER TO HAVE A BETTER FUTURE. IN LOOKING AHEAD AT THE FUTURE, BOTH JUAN AND JULIA, WERE SUPPORTIVE IN SENDING ALL 6 YOUNG SONS AND DAUGHTERS TO THE UNITED STATES, AND IN DOING THIS, THEIR SONS AND DAUGHTERS WOULD HAVE A BRIGHTER FUTURE. THEY DID ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL. BOTH JUAN AND JULIA ARRIVED IN THE UNITED STATES IN 1978 AND BY THIS TIME ALL 3 SONS AND 3 DAUGHTERS HAVE BEEN LIVING IN THE UNITED FOR MANY YEARS. HE WAS ALWAYS THANKFUL TO GOD FOR BEING ABLE TO CARE FOR HIS FAMILY AND FOR PROVIDING A BETTER FUTURE TO HIS FAMILY. HE WAS A CARING PERSON. A DEVOTED FAMILY MAN. A MAN OF FAITH. A LOYAL FATHER, GRANDFATHER AND A FRIEND. HE HAD A GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR AND COULD TELL STORIES OF HIS LIFE AND DESCRIBE OBSTACLES AND HARDSHIPS THAT HE ENCOUNTERED IN LIFE; HOWEVER, HE HAD CONFIDENCE IN KNOWING THAT HE HAD OVERCAME ALL THESE OBSTACLES AND THANKED GOD FOR HELPING HIM IN HIS TIME OF NEED. THE MORE OBSTACLES HE OVERCAME, THE MORE HIS FAITH GREW. FINALLY, WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER MR. JUAN N. ACOSTA DAMIAN FOR BEING A BLESSING TO ALL HIS FAMILY AND ALSO TO OTHER HUMAN BEINGS WHO HE HELPED ALONG THE WAY.

MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE.
