Our condolences to all his family. I first met Juan at the start of fall practice at L.J.Christen jr. High. We both played football back then in 1960. I didn't know his name for a while. We used to call him Manzano-his dad's nickname. We had been friends ever since-more recently, we were FB friends. Will always remember his jokes and sayings. May he RIP. Javier Montoya

Judy I am so so sorry about Junior's passing. He was the cousin I felt closest to and I loved him dearly. Life will not be the same without him as well as my trips back home. My prayers to you and the family.

Hechos 24:15 habla de “una Resurrección”. Revelación o Apocalipsis 21:4 dice que “Dios limpiará toda lágrima de los ojos y la muerte no será más, ni existirá ya más lamento ni clamor ni dolor”. Jehova Dios muy pronto acabará con toda la maldad y sufrimiento además nos dice que tiene el deseo de devolverles la vida a nuestros seres queridos que hayan muerto.

This candle is lit for a great father, friend, Lipan Apache member, and military veteran, Juan Soliz. You will be missed but not forgotten.....

To the family of Juan Soliz, so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed talking to Juan over the phone about our Apache Family Trees. I never had the privilege of meeting him in person though. He met my sister who lives in Laredo also. They and others attended the Laredo Powwows over the years. We will miss you Juan Soliz, but you will never be forgotten. Thank you for your military service also.
