Juan Mecillas, Jr.


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.

Juan is survived by his wife, Gina (Jaurigui) Mecillas of Mesa, AZ; his son, Juan Mecillas III (Heather) of Muscadine, Alabama; his daughters, Marie Christine (Mecillas) Mau (David) of Mesa, AZ and Kovi (Mau) Tuipulotu (Johnny) of Mesa, AZ; his granddaughters, Gina Marie Niko of San Tan Valley, AZ, Ana Seilala Mau of Mesa, AZ, Gabriela Marie Mecillas of Auburn, AL, Tayah Tuipulotu of Mesa, AZ, Lana Tuipulotu of Mesa, AZ, and Sydney Tuipulotu of Mesa, AZ; his grandsons, Zechariah T. Eason of Muscadine, AL, Micah Isaiah Eason of Muscadine, AL, and Kingston Tuipulotu of Mesa, AZ; his mother, Carmen (Medina) Mecillas of Wattenburg, CO; four brothers; and two sisters.

  5. The Mecillas family, My heart aches for your loss,my tears are real for i understand your loss, losing your dad or any parent is a hard loss, losing your spouse, the love of your life is even harder, i get that Gina.my heart hurts the most for you Gina, what you once knew is gone, but i promise you will find your new ” normal “. I never had much conversations with Mr. Mecillas other then Hi how are ya, good to see ya, how’s the kids ? But i knew he was a good man, other then being a “Bronco ” fan. i liked him. ( Go Cowboys ) I’m sure Chad had more conversations with him, maybe even some sound advise growing up or even some butt chewing, which i’m sure was deserved. My love , my prayers and my hope that you find peace with your faith during this hard time in your life. I don’t know if Chad will respond in kind to this but i know his heart is heavy for ya’ll. He’s with the angels now, free of pain & will now be forever your guardian angel to watch over you. Much love , Susie Mulholland
