Juan grew up in Lynn, MA. He was in foster homes in Saugus, moved to Pennsylvania for 20 years and then lived in South Carolina for a year before moving back home to Boston to be with his family. He loved all sports and played when he was younger and his favorite team was the Raiders. Wiz had a good heart which was as big as his personality. He was a lovable and caring person. He’d give you the shirt off his back if he could help out. His smile and laugh would light up a room. He loved gathering with his loved ones dancing and listening to music. He effortlessly made people laugh. He loved his sister’s cooking, his Spanish food and was proud of being Puerto Rican. Juan was a role model, a good brother, father and friend and he will be greatly missed and remain in our hearts forever.
