Raised by 190 people in 3 months
Juan was a very kind and loving person. The ones who had the chance to meet him couldn't tell you other wise. Unfortunately, we are here in a position we never thought we would be in. We had to say goodbye sooner than we thought. He touched so many peoples live’s. Juan was loved by so many. 

Juan leaves behind 5 beautiful kids and a beloved wife. Juan was the youngest brother of 9 and at only 43 years of age, we lost him. The entire family is in despair. Where do you go now?

We ask for your help during this difficult time. Juan passed away while he was out of town for work. All donations will go towards his transportation back to Chicago and funeral expenses to give him the proper burial he deserves.

All donations will be received by his daughter, Bryana his oldest. We would like to thank everyone who has been with us, reached out to us, and kept our family in your prayers. If you have any questions please contact me -- evelyna.medina@gmail  We would like to give his wife and children the peace of mind during this very difficult time as they are left without their father & husband and a financial burden.

I will keep this page updated on visitation services once we have arranged everything to bring him back home.
Thank you
Evelyn Medina Alvarez

Hi, this is Evelyn, Juan's oldest niece.
My uncle would be very happy to see all the special messages that you have emailed me and posted here. I understand that you also miss him very much as you appreciated him. I thank you on behalf of my family for the great love you have shown us and for your beautiful words of encouragement. Like I mentioned before my uncle wanted to be cremated so there was no burial service, and his funeral services were last Monday, February 18th.
My aunt and cousins are receiving so much love from everyone. This page remains open since my cousin Bryana has not been able to withdrawl the funds as this takes a few days to process.
Thank you so much for your generous donation and prayers!
Peace,
Evelyn

Thank you for your kindness and sympathy during our time of loss. It gives us much comfort to know that you are thinking of us as we grieve our Juan's death. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers. Below is my uncle's obituary. Please consider not wearing all black as we know my uncle wouldn't want that.
