My Uncle Juan was one of the most caring and warm-hearted persons I knew. A hard-working man that did whatever it took to support his family. Always willing to lend a helping hand no matter what the circumstances were. When life would knock him down, he would get right back up and continued to fight. I learned a lot from my uncle.

He had such a positive Influence early on in my life; from sports to music and even in the sneaker game. I looked up to him in many ways.

I can gladly say that I genuinely cherished every moment with you tio Juan; as your nephew, teammate, and a friend.

Thank you for all the great moments and laughs we had together.

One day we will once again step on the baseball diamond together, side by side...Until then, the celebration of your life will continue.. LOVE YOU MAN!

I had a lot of great memories with Juan "Johnny Boy" growing up in Fontana when he came down from Lynnwood. Great kid, friend, and Brother. My heart truly goes out to the Family, I'm here when you need me, I'll do what he would have done for me. May God rest his soul.

We would like to thank everyone that have been sharing their stories and memories about my brother. It’s pretty much the way my brother was, a beautiful soul. His heart failed because he tried to share his heart with everyone. Now he’s reunited with my father and shooting hoops with Kobe and Gigi Bryant. HE WILL FOREVER BE IN OUR HEARTS......LOVE YOU BROTHER AND I MISS YOU!!

It’s hard to forget someone who gave you so much to remember. There are certain songs that remind me of you, especially “me vale” by mana, and anytime they come on the radio or I play them on my phone I can hear you laughing and see you dancing as if you were right in front of me. You were loving, genuine and humble. I will forever cherish moments shared with you. I know you will be watching over all of us but most importantly, your babies, my tia Christina and abuelita Gloria. I love you tio! Until we meet again. . .❤️ “Simón”

Juan was a solid dude with a heart of gold! I was going through a very tough time and he would talk to me for hours helping me get through my issues. We both kinda suffered from the same thing. I have only known him for a short amount of time but it feels like I have known him for a life time. I know he loved his wife and kids his dad mom and siblings. He talked about you guys every day I seen him. I know juan was a true believer in christ. We would talk about god and all that all the time. I know 10000% he is in heaven. I'm just shocked. I can't even imagine what the family is going through. I send my prayers and condolences to all of his loved ones. And if there is anything you guys need let me know and I mean it. If I can do it I will do it forsure. God bless nothing but love!🙏🙏🙏😔💔

I remember the first day Juancame to work. The first day I met him he was such a nice guy I remember I was down on my luck I needed something to eat and I didn't have any money at the time he literally gave me his last $6 to go get a snack and get something to eat he's the type of guy to help anyone he literally gave me his extra baton at work because we are having a lot of issues with homeless people he always was there for he's friends and family He knew I was struggling he knew my situation didme a big favor he sold me his used Honda when he knew I needed it he didn't even have to sell it he just did it for me I know it he was that type of guy to be there for everyone. When I heard the news I was very upset I just saw him maybe a week before that he came to my job site and we talked for a little bit. Like I said if I needed anything help at work advice what to do if he was there he was my mentor I went to him for all the answers at work he was a good guy and he will be forever missed I'm sorry for his loss.

The world is a smaller place without knowing you are not here anymore with us but I know you will always be watching over me and my family like you always did, all you and you're family did was accept me with open arms. I found nothing with peace and love spending time with you, that will always be in my heart just as you will, I never went a day without thinking or talking to you. That's something that will never stop. I love you brother! ❤ YoursTruly
