OBITUARY:

Juan Del Cid, 45 years of age, passed away Wednesday, November 7th after being stricken at home earlier in the week. He was the devoted husband of Jacqueline M. (Veintimilla) Del Cid.

Born in Guatemala, he was one of four children born to Jose and Blanca Del Cid. He was raised and educated there and came to America at seventeen. His older brother had moved here over thirty years ago, and on Thanksgiving of 1984 he brought his family over to America. Juan had spent some time initially in New York where he met the love of his life, Jacqueline Veintimilla, at church. They were good friends first, then they married a while later. They have spent over the last twenty five years dedicated to each other. They brought three terrific children into the world of whom he was most proud. Being a husband and Dad was most important to Juan. He enjoyed spending time with his family and was devoted to being the best husband and dad he could possibly be.

Juan began working for Verizon, where he remained for several years as a security officer at a location in Boston. Then he began to drive a taxicab, first in Medford and then in Malden. He so enjoyed driving, and over the years had built a network of customers that he treated like family. He was very proud of his taxi, keeping it pristine both inside and out. A very jovial man, he enjoyed talking and learning from all those with whom he had the pleasure of coming in contact.

Mr. Del Cid was a perfect gentleman who had the greatest amount of dignity and respect for his family and truly anyone with whom he came in contact. He had a great zest for life. His faith, family and dedication are what will live on in the hearts of all.

Mr. Del Cid was predeceased by his parents.

He is lovingly survived by his wife “Mamita” Jacqueline M. (Veintimilla) Del Cid, children Diane E. DaSilva and her husband Danilo J. of Malden, Juan C. Del Cid of Malden, and Christopher L. Del Cid and his wife Katherine E. of Woburn. He was the dear brother of Jose L. Del Cid and his wife Sandra of Woburn, Clemencia Del Cid, and Ilsa Del Cid De Villegas, both of Guatemala, and cherished Papa of Cayden Del Cid. He was also the brother-in-law of Shawn and Gioconda Le Baron of Bradford, son-in-law of “Mama” Argentina Sanchez of Stoneham, “Tio papi” to Shanee, Shawna, and Megan Le Baron and “tio” to Maribel Villa and Axel Del Cid.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a service at the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn on Monday, November 19th at 12 Noon. Interment will follow in Calvary Cemetery, Woburn.

Calling hours at the funeral home are on Sunday from 6 to 10 p.m.

Remembrances may be made in Juan’s memory to Iglesia Casa de Dios, 3 Howard Court, Woburn, MA 01801.
