Obituary for Juan A. Velez

June 14, 1949 - June 8, 2017
Acworth, Georgia | Age 67


Juan A. Velez, 67, born in Puerto Rico but proudly raised in the streets of Harlem in New York City, was an unpredictable character. He loved to joke with friends and family while making fun of anything possible and always made folks laugh.

Dad, a truck driver for over 30 years had great work ethic. He taught all of us about the value of a dollar and how you always needed to show up. He loved his kids, even if some relationships remained undone, all of us had a piece of is heart. He adored our mom, his wife Mirian and made sure to tell her regularly. His grandkids love him and are all grateful for his silliness. Life definitely threw our family some lemons and we will quickly made for some forgiving lemonade. Thank you Dad for so many warm hugs and meaningful smies. All of your children will rally together and spend a lot more time together. We all miss you already and love you dearly.
