Juan was born in Laredo, Texas to Jesus and Francisca Morado on April 20, 1960. Juan was an avid collector and lover of fast cars and Rock-n-Roll. He spent his life working on the farm, driving that green John Deere tractor. Juan Morado was a humble, quiet, mild mannered man with a loving gentle heart. He was honest, trustworthy, generous and always willing to help someone in need. He never expected praise, rather he lived a very private life. If you ever were to encounter Juan, he would always have a smile on his face and a cold bottle of soda in his hand. We will miss our gentle giant. Juan is preceded in death by his parents, Jesus and Francisca Morado, his grandmother Adela Benavidez and Carlos Benavidez Juan is survived by his sister Ruby Martinez, his nieces Cindy Martinez, June Ella Martinez, Talia Martinez, an uncle Shon Morado, uncles Morado in Michigan.
