Spending most of his life working under the hood of a car, Juan is a master auto mechanic, running the family owned “Allred’s Garage” for many years. Following back surgery, he returned to school at USU and became an automotive teacher, first at Viewmont, then at DATC teaching diesel automotive until his retirement in 1995. Juan and Gladys served two LDS missions; Fresno, Calif. and Church Offices in Salt Lake City in the auto fleet department. Now they enjoy retirement traveling to sunny Arizona for the winters, actively serving in the church, pursuing a hobby of cutting stain glass, being of service to his family and neighbors at a beckon call, attending the temple, camping and enjoying the warm Utah summers at their home in Kaysville. The family held a surprise early birthday bash this past July when all of his children could be in attendance.
And so hats off to Juan, Son, Brother, Bro. Allred, Mr. Allred, Dad, Grandpa and Grandpa Great. We love you and wish you many more birthdays.
