Juaniquin left us unexpectedly on the afternoon of January 8, 2003. He was coming back from the junkyard and was driving on Rte 61 in Pennsylvania, when someone suddenly turned in front of him. Both he (driver) and the passenger were killed. Juaniquin was killed instantly. At the time of his accident, he was a junior at Schuylkill Valley High School.
Juaniquin had many interests which included, playing kickball; watching wrestling; and doing auto-body work on cars. He planned on opening his own auto-body business. In October of 2002, just 3 months before he was taken, he married the love of his life, Maritza. He had very intense, beautiful eyes and a beautiful smile. He had such a kind heart and always made sure his parents and his siblings had smiles on their faces. He enjoyed making other people happy.
He is survived by his mother, Linda; his brothers: Charlie, Louie, Papo, Orlando, Miguel, Danny, and Adam; his sisters: Coki, Ana, Erica, Marisol, and Jacky. His father, Heriberto (Eddie) passed away December 28, 2009. He is greatly missed by everyone who knew him. Life will never be the same, but he lives in our hearts forever.
