In memory of
JUAN M. GUTIERREZ Juan Manuel Gutierrez, 68, of Las Vegas, passed away March 30, 2019. He was born March 5, 1951, in Mercedes, TX, and was a resident of Nevada for 44 years. Pastor Juan was the most amazing and loving husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, pastor and friend. His wife, Peggy, was his high school sweetheart, the love of his life and was the first to greet him when he entered Heaven. They were inseparable from the moment they met in high school, until she passed away in 2008. They are now together for all eternity. For his children, he was the most loving and wonderful father. For his grandkids, he was an amazing and devoted grandfather and papa. None of his family ever doubted how much he loved them as he always ended every parting with an "I love you". He taught his family how to love with all of their heart, be loyal to no end, to laugh and smile even when life is hard, to fight for what is right, to be strong and to always put God first. He was an incredible pastor and an awesome friend. He devoted many years of his life to the Christian ministry and had an extraordinary testimony of God's Love. Juan went Home to meet his Father with his faith intact and a life well lived. His family looks forward to both Juan and Peggy greeting every one of them as they enter the pearly gates of Heaven with their big, beautiful smiles and huge embracing hugs! In Heaven, he was also greeted by his father, Fernando Gutierrez, and his mother, Fedora Gutierrez. Juan is survived by his son, Juan M. Gutierrez II and his wife, Lisa Ann Gutierrez of Lacey, Washington; his daughter, Raquel Andrea Ryan and her husband, Daniel Marcus Ryan; his daughter, Angelina Andrea McKenzie and her husband, Jim Owen McKenzie Jr.; his daughter, Felicia Andrea Lytle and her husband, Donald Bryan Lytle; and his son, Lucas M.
