Juan Liendo, 90, beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend entered into the glory of his eternal life unexpectedly on Friday, November 13, 2020 at his residence.
Juan was a native and lifetime resident of Brownsville. Juan worked in retail sales all of his adult life. He worked at several local businesses in our community. In the early 70s, he and his wife Toya, opened J Mart a small Mom and Pop store. Together they operated J Mart until they decided to retire and enjoy the fruits of their labors in the 90’s.
In his spare time, Juan enjoyed spending time with his sons, grandsons, and nephews. They would go fishing, hunting, or just out to the beach. Juan was a dapper gentleman who did not look his age and was told quite often that he looked 20 years younger! Juan took great pride in his attire and was complimented on how well he dressed and how well he looked.
Juan was deeply loved and will be profoundly missed not only by his family and friends but by all those fortunate to have known him.
