Juan Rosas

December 30, 1924 — September 28, 2021

Juan José Rosas, 96, years old of Refugio, Texas passed away on September 28, 2021 in Kerrville, Texas. He was born in Pasaje, Durango, Mexico to Bacilio Rosas and Maria de la Luz Lozano on December 30, 1924. He married Luz López Cuevas on June 10, 1953 in El Salto, Pueblo Nuevo, Durango, México. At a very young age, he left his home and came to work for Thomas O'Connor in Goliad, Texas and Roger Williams in Tivoli, Texas. He later worked for Coastline Construction for 17 years until the oil business bottomed out in the early 80's. He then went to work for Copano Cattle Company where he lived on the Melon Creek Ranch in Refugio County, Texas until he retired, as a ranch hand. He never could stay idle so he worked for D.H. Braman Jr. Ranches well into his late 70's. He loved the Cowboy way of life, but was not afraid to do any other kind of manual labor. He loved to garden and grow vegetables, play cards, read, play dominoes, and sit outside and enjoy the day.
