Juan Moreno

February 2, 1944 — March 4, 2024

It is with great sadness that the family of Juan Manuel Moreno shares the news of his going home to glory. He is now resting in the arms of Jesus his beloved savior. Juan passed away on Monday, March 4th at his home while sleeping of natural causes. Born February 2, 1944, Juan was 80 years old when he went to join his beloved wife, Sally Moreno, in heaven.

Juan was born in Beeville, but his family moved to Corpus Christi while he was still quite young. He lived in Corpus until he was 12 then his family relocated to Wilcox, Arizona. It was there that he met his future wife, Sally Arvizu. After marrying his young wife Juan enlisted as an infantryman in the U.S. Army at 18 years old. He served from February 1961 through February 1964 which included an overseas deployment to Mannheim, Germany. His military service was a source of great pride for him. We (his children) are proud of him, too.

After the service, he began working in his father's small family business. He worked with his dad in the metals business. They bought and sold junk cars for scrap. This was the start of his driving career. Eventually, he began driving for bigger companies. He chose to focus on propane and earned certification in hazardous materials handling of liquid and gaseous chemicals. For most of his career, he delivered propane gas locally or across the country. He even delivered into Canada and Mexico. He had a great love for driving as he said it enabled him to listen to Christian preachers and audio Bible reading anytime he was behind the wheel. Juan retired after 30 years on the road. Juan will be remembered by many for his love of music, his collection of musical instruments, and his efforts to learn to play them all. Juan was blessed with musical talent and played the bajo sexto and the accordion. He especially loved to sing and play music for Jesus with his beloved wife, Sally. They both loved singing for Jesus publicly whenever they had the opportunity. Local Hispanic churches often invited them to sing. Juan was a member of the Iglesia Bautista of Aransas Pass.

Juan is survived by his 5 children: daughter, Lisa M Ochoa, daughter, Emily DeMartino, son, John Manuel Moreno, Jr; son, Paul Moreno and daughter, Naomi Moreno. He also leaves behind 13 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. He also leaves behind several siblings; sister Dee Murwaski, sister Evangelina McCoy, brothers David Moreno,Eli Moreno, and sister, Eva.
