Juan was born in San Antonio, Texas on September 19, 1947, to Jesus and Virginia Lopez Zaragosa. In 1966, he began his career at the Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation as an inspector assigned to the department's Bexar County residency and worked on the construction of US 90 West and US 281.

He retired from TxDOT in 2003, but continued to work with the Bexar County Appraisal District and HRM Consultants, as well as served on the Executive Committee for the International Right of Way Association.

Juan married Anita "Anna" Zaragosa on February 16, 1968. During their 50 years together, they traveled over half of the U.S. and, more recently, enjoyed spending time with their granddaughter, Dottie. Juan was skilled in many crafts, including resin casting and photography. His favorite pastimes included betting on horses, playing tennis, fishing and watching sports with his son, Chris.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his brothers, Albert Lopez and Rudy Zaragosa. Juan is survived by his wife, Anna Zaragosa; son, Christopher J. Zaragosa and wife, Anne; granddaughter, Dottie Claire Zaragosa; sister, Helen Hearne; brother, Manuel Zaragosa and wife Janie; sister-in-law, Alice Zaragosa; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Juan will be remembered for his generosity to those in need, his ability to fix almost anything, his loyalty and his sense of humor. He will be dearly missed by those who knew and loved him.
