SANFORD — Sanford resident Orlando Juarez-Garcia, 45, went home to be with the Lord on March 21. Orlando came into the world on December 27, 1974 in Chihuahua, Mexico, the beloved son of Mario Juarez and Maria Luisa Garcia.
He worked as a truck driver for ACI for many years. He loved being on the open road and knowing the sacrifices he made -- his time away from his family -- was all worth it in the end, because he was able to provide for them.
Orlando was a kind, compassionate and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin and friend; who enjoyed going fishing, camping, traveling and spending as much time with his family, grandchildren and friends.
Orlando will live on through: his wife, Jessica Juarez of Sanford; parents, Mario and Luisa Juarez of Chihuahua, MX; daughters: Mariah (Joel) Villagomez of Center; Arisma Juarez of Yuma, AZ; Melissa (Javier) Urbina of Monte Vista; Sheela Juarez of Sanford; sons: Christian Juarez, Jesse Estrada both of Sanford; grandchildren: Romeo Villagomez, Armando Ruybal, Isai Villagomez, Ashton Urbina, Paisley Urbina; sisters, Norma Juarez of Chihuahua, MX; Alejandra Enriquez of Phoenix, AZ; brother, Mario Juarez Jr., of Mexico.
He is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
A private family Mass of the Resurrection will be held at a later date. To leave online condolences please visit romerofuneralhomes.com. The care of arrangements have been entrusted to Romero Funeral Home of Antonito.
