Juan Lagos-Estrada

April 6, 1978 — December 24, 2021


Juan Lagos-Estrada, 43, passed away on December 24, 2021, in Provo, UT after battling cancer for several years. He was born in Rancagua, Chile to Juan Lagos Garay and Elena Estrada Valenzuela.

Juan was a quiet man, but always kind and generous. He was always quick to serve any time he saw a need. Anything from fixing a car to mowing a lawn, if he saw something he could help with it was done. Juan also served as a volunteer firefighter in Rancagua and Alto Hospicio, Chile and loved driving and repairing fire trucks. He often dreamed of joining a fire team in the United States someday. Even more than firefighting though, was Juan's love of trains. Juan was always fascinated with trains of all kinds and loved to go to the yards to watch them. If you were driving by a train track and he could see a train coming, he would make you stop at train stops just to watch the trains go by.
Juan is survived by Maria Elena Norman, his sister, her husband Tory Norman and their son Ben Norman of Provo, as well as many uncles, aunts, and cousins in Chile. Juan is preceded in death by his parents.

Juan Lagos-Estrada, de 43 años, falleció el 24 de diciembre de 2021 en Provo, UT después de luchar contra el cáncer durante varios años. Nació en Rancagua, Chile de Juan Lagos Garay y Elena Estrada Valenzuela.

Juan era un hombre tranquilo, pero siempre amable y generoso. Siempre se apresuraba a servir cada vez que veía una necesidad. Cualquier cosa, desde arreglar un auto hasta cortar el pasto, si veía algo en lo que podía ayudar, lo hacía. Juan también se desempeñó como bombero voluntario en Rancagua y Alto Hospicio, Chile y le encantaba conducir y arreglar camiones de bomberos. A menudo soñaba con unirse a un equipo de bomberos en los Estados Unidos algún día. Pero aun más que ser bombero, le encantaron los trenes. A Juan siempre le fascinaron los trenes de todo tipo y le encantaba ir a los museos a verlos. Si estabas manejando y él pudiera ver que se acercaba un tren, te haría detenerte en las paradas de tren solo para ver los pasar.

A Juan le sobreviven María Elena Norman, su hermana, su esposo Tory Norman y su hijo Ben Norman de Provo, así como muchos tíos, tías y primos en Chile. Juan es precedido en la muerte por sus padres.
