September 13, 1942—September 30, 2019

   CATARACT - John (Juan) Guevara Sr., 77, of Cataract, WI, passed away Monday, September 30, 2019 at the Tomah VA Medical Center.

   He was born September 13, 1942 to Jesus Guevara and Simona Ayala in Dallas, Texas. John was most proud of several things. He worked for the United States Army in "Chemical Corps" for several years. After being honorably discharged, he met his loving wife of 50 years, Janice Badziong (from Illinois) and had a wonderful son together, a son named after him, Juan Guevara Jr. (wife Brenda). But that's not all. John accepted into his family a daughter (Pam) from his wife's previous marriage and adopted a son (Brian) while being a foster parent for many years. He also had several grandchildren and great-grandchildren who he was extremely thankful for.

   John was a member of the Sparta American Legion and an avid gun collector. He also loved the Dallas Cowboys (his family won't hold it against him!).

   Preceding him in death are his father, Jesus Guevara; his mother, Simona Ayala-Guevara; his brother, Richard Guevara; and his daughter, Pam Petersdorf.

   Celebration of Life will be held Friday, October 11, 2019 beginning at 1:00 p.m.-? at his son and daughter-in-law's residence in the City of Sparta. The family would appreciate everyone who has reached out and offered their support. Thank you!
