Juan P. Linares “Paki”, was born March 9, 1995 in California. He was raised in Chicago. He was 24 years old when he passed away on December 29, 2019. Juan was loved dearly by all his friends and family. Juan was known by his family and friends as “Paki”.
Juan grew up having a great love for soccer. Through soccer he met a lot of his childhood friends. Also, he was always riding his bike working no matter the weather which made him a very hard worker. He always knew how to express himself through songs that he would listen to, and he would always sing his heart out without worrying about who was looking. Juan was definitely the prankster and funny one of the family. He graduated from Cristo Rey Jesuit High school in 2013 where he made everlasting friendships. Every one that knew him knows that he would always light up any room that he walked in. He always put everyone before himself never expecting anything in return. He was the best big brother, and he was always protecting his siblings. Throughout his life he suffered from some medical problems, but he was always strong and overcame all the obstacles.
Juan is the son of Pascual Linares and Veronica Campos. He is the brother of Miguel Linares, Veronica Linares, and Julian Linares.
Juan’s death came tragically and unexpectedly, but he is now our guardian angel. We know he is looking out for his loved ones. To contribute to Paki’s arrangements please click here.
