Juan Carlos Herrera Obituary

With a heart heavier than a kettlebell at the end of a long workout, we announce the passing of Juan Carlos Herrerra, a smart, funny, generous, and resilient man, who departed this world on February 9, 2024. Born on February 24, 1977, in Metapan, El Salvador, Juan Carlos embarked on an incredible journey of life that would eventually lead him to Boston, Massachusetts. He would often chuckle about the strange turns life took him on, but he was always ready to roll with it, just like he would on his beloved roller skates. Juan Carlos was a master of meats, a butcher by trade, where he served up cuts as sharp as his wit. His customers knew him as the funny man behind the counter, always ready with a joke to brighten their day. His generosity was evident not only in the hearty portions he’d serve but also in the way he lived his life. He was always available to help anyone in need, a testament to his big heart and generous spirit. His resilience, like a well-marinated steak, was both tender and tough. He faced many difficulties in life, but he navigated through them with a grin on his face and a twinkle in his eye. Outside of the butcher shop, Juan Carlos was a man of many hobbies. He loved to cook, his kitchen becoming a second stage for his culinary performances. He was also a gym enthusiast, turning his passion for fitness into a daily routine. Perhaps most endearing was his love for roller skating, a hobby that captured his playful spirit and youthful energy. What mattered most to Juan Carlos was his family. He was a devoted father to his two sons, Cristian and Angel, and a loving son to his parents, Dora Figueroa and Jose Herrera. He was also a cherished brother to Elsa, Vilma, and Mayra. His love for them was as vast as the sea, and he was always there for them, providing a steady anchor in the unpredictable currents of life. As Albert Einstein once said, “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile”, a quote that perfectly encapsulates Juan Carlos’ life. As we remember Juan Carlos, we will treasure the memories of his laughter, the warmth of his generosity, and the strength of his resilience. He was indeed a happy person, whose good humor and positive attitude towards life touched all those around him. In his honor, we ask for you to share your memories and upload photos of Juan Carlos to the memorial page. Each memory shared will be a testament to his life, a life lived with love, laughter, and an unmatched zest for life. We will always remember you, Juan Carlos, as the happy person you were.
