Juan O. Santos

May 6, 1951 — January 15, 2014

Juan O. Santos, 62, entered eternal rest on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at Rio Grande Regional Hospital in McAllen. Acts 20:35 says; In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” So at 3:37 p.m., my family and I gave my Dad to the Lord. We Love him, but he was tired and it was time for him to go home. The Lord gives and he also takes on his time, not ours.

Juan was born on May 6, 1951 in Edinburg, Texas to Tomas Santos and Maria Olivares Santos. He lived in Edinburg all of his life. He is preceded in death by his parents; brother, Zenon Moya; sisters, Lala Martinez and Tomasa Salazar.

Left to cherish his memories are his sons; Juan Tomas “Johnny” (Zulema) Garcia and Rosendo “Ross” (Lorena) Beltran; companion, Amalia T. Pena; her children, Dimas (Erika) Estevis, Robert (Sabrina) Pena and Belinda (Jesus) Oropesa; brothers, Ramiro (Ninfa) Santos and Willie (Andrea) Santos; sisters, Olga Garces and Aurora Garza, 13 – grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews.

Juan worked for over 35 years as a truck driver working for Spence Concrete, South Texas Concrete, Rene’s Masonry and TEGA Construction, LLC. He enjoyed playing billiards pool and spending time with his friends. He loved to play his guitar and sing short songs that he would compose.
