Juan Mecillas Jr, 71, of Mesa, Arizona passed away on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 at home, surrounded by his family.
Juan was born on October 8, 1947 in Cimarron, New Mexico to Juan and Carmen (Medina) Mecillas.
Juan enjoyed doing projects in his garage. He was always there for anyone who needed help with anything. Before he was medically disabled he worked in construction. Woodworking was his passion. He also loved the Denver Broncos; he bled orange and blue. His collection of model cars was the only thing that could rival his Broncos memorabilia.
Juan loved his family and he would do anything he could for them, especially his grandchildren.
