Juan Moncayo
Juan Moncayo, 47, passed away peacefully on Saturday June 24, 2017 in Roswell surrounded by his loving family. He was born September 19, 1969 to Jose Padilla and Rita Moncayo in Santa Rosa, New Mexico. Juan is preceded in death by his father Jose Padilla, maternal grandparents Andres and Adelina Moncayo, aunt Olympia Sharp, and his beloved dog Lilbit.

Juan proudly served in the Army National Guard on a drug interdiction task force earning the rank of specialist. During his time of service, he was awarded the Army Service Ribbon, Army Achievement Medal, Army Commendation Medal, M-16 Rifle sharpshooter marksmanship badge, and the grenade sharpshooter marksmanship badge.

Juan was a very social and personable person who enjoyed being around people. He would enter a room and make his presence known by his dynamic personality and his knack for his exaggerated storytelling. Juan enjoyed long walks with pet companions and outdoor activities.

Juan is survived by his mother, Rita Moncayo of Roswell; Brothers Matthew Moncayo and Joseph Moncayo of Roswell; sisters Audrey Lara of Roswell, NM and Georgia Moncayo of Washington, D.C.; nephews Javier Lara and Malachi Moncayo; and nieces Sandra Lara and Marisa Moncayo.
