left this life to be reunited with the lord and our other loved ones on Aug. 18, 2014. He was born on June 2, 1927 in Union de San Antonio, Jalisco, Mexico to Wenceslao and Juana Cruz.

Juan was a hard-worker and worked construction in various places including White Sands, Missile base (four corners area) before moving to Hayden, Ariz. in 1957; where he started a career with the Town of Hayden. On June 1968, Juan proudly became an American citizen. He loved the outdoors! Hunting, fishing, camping and just being out in nature. It’s a trait he instilled upon all of his children. The adventure, the fun of going out and exploring different places will always be remember by his children.
