Juan Carlos Morales

July 21, 1941 — June 12, 2023

Beacon, NY

Juan Carlos Morales, a resident of Beacon, passed away on Monday, June 12, 2023 at the Phelps Memorial Hospital in Sleepy Hollow, NY; he was 81 years old. He was born on July 21, 1941 in San Miguel, El Salvador, son of the late Carlos Alberto Morales and Juana Rosa Melara.

Juan Carlos was studying law in his home country of El Salvador, when he came to the US. Starting from scratch in a new country and a new language, he discovered his love of the culinary arts and worked his way up to be a great chef.

Juan Carlos loved to read and was a life-long learner. He kept up on the latest technology, which he used to stay connected to his family and satisfy his innate curiosity of the world. His mind was always sharp. He enjoyed having conversations about any topic – from ancient Mayan civilizations to funny random pop culture tidbits. He was an avid coin collector, enjoyed drawing and journaling and loved music and poetry.

Juan is survived by his sister Maria, his children and their families.

He was predeceased by his beloved wife Cruz de Maria Morales on August 8, 2018.
