Juan Manuel Valenzuela
Juan Manuel Valenzuela was born June 2, 1980, to Pedro Valenzuela II and the late Rosa Maria Valenzuela. He passed away April 8, 2022, after a hard-fought battle with cancer. He loved sports and being outdoors, golfing, fishing, and grilling whenever he could. Most of all he loved his family. It was no secret that his niece “Chula Baby” Rosa, held a special place in his heart and he loved all of his nephews, Pedro, Alex, Q, and Celo like they were his own. After almost 9 years growing up and figuring out life together Juan and his greatest love, his everything, Ariana Alicia-Soto Valenzuela married on July 15, 2011. He had six children: Lousienna Manuela Valenzuela, Juan Louis Martin Valenzuela, Rodolfo Barron IV, Juan Manuel Valenzuela Jr., Alicia Concepcion Valenzuela, and Ana Maria Valenzuela. Also cherishing his memories are his brother Pedro Valenzuela III and sister Nora Maria Valenzuela. Juan was loved by many, and he loved big in return. He leaves behind many special people including his best friend Ricky, his Nikki boo, honorary daughters Kendall and Makenna, and his always sister Sara.
He joins his long missed “Hillbilly” Steve, his grandma Ana Maria Valenzuela, and his beloved “Poppy Larry” who left this earth before him.
The family would like to give special thanks to the nursing staff and care team at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital for giving their all to his care. It was no surprise that he melted their hearts as he did ours.
