Long known for her love of animals as well as all of mankind, she always ensured that the least of us; whether for a stranger or a wounded kitten, was provided for fully with all of her personal strength and resources to ensure their healing or abatement of hunger; especially to those she knew and loved. Delia was the matriarch and shining star of our family, always the beacon of love and hope. She continuously remained faithful to God as she administered faith, love and charity toward all mankind; giving with no regard to her own condition and personal countenance. God chose Delia to be His special ambassador on earth and through His Son Jesus Christ, she lived and accomplished her blessed mission here on earth. Though she will be sorely missed by her friends and family, we all feel comforted knowing that Heaven gained a beautiful, new angel and will continue to dance on that glorious, eternal dance floor.

His assiduous work ethic became evident at an early age when he opted out of school in order to help the family by working on the Knolle farms. It was at these very dairies that he met, his wife to be, Josephina Salinas. On December 13th, 2019 they celebrated 60 years of marriage. Juan Jr. never stopped working his whole life. Jr. went from working on the farms to becoming a milk transport driver for Knolle dairies. He had already worked diligently from his adolescent years with his father. Between the Knolle dairies and Hygeia Dairy Company, where he worked transporting milk over 40 years. His accomplishments were numerous as a professional driver. In the 70’s and 80’s he was recognized by Hygeia and received “Driver Safety Awards” year after year. However, his most prized driving accomplishment was being named “TRANSPORT DRIVER OF THE YEAR” in 1980 and 1982, the highest feat that Hygeia awarded its professional motorists.
