Little background on Juan....

He battled a very bad case of cancer and beat it working 60 hours a week in a factory before getting sick. After his victory over the disease he decided to live his life more on his terms!!

Moving here from the Dominican as a teenage and then bought my brother Ed’s lobster permit and mooring and lived life his way!!

Right off, the whole fishing community took to Juan which is unusual for newcomers in this industry with his smile and friendliness and could always make you laugh with some of his remarks every morning on his way to the boat to haul his traps!

We were all proud to call Juan our friend and someone that we could all emulate in our own lives to make us all a better person. He leaves behind a wife and two young boys. Our hearts are broken!!!

Capt Phil

“He was meant to be one of the lobstermen,” said Linda Hunt, manager of Yankee Fishermen’s Cooperative.

A husband and father of two from Hampton, Juan died at age 36 years Monday from what authorities believe was a drowning while working on his boat in the harbor. He left behind a wife and two sons, 9-year-old Juan Gabriel and 8-year-old Alejandro.
