ReynosoDias

Oct. 17, 1929 – Jan. 21, 2013

Juan Reynoso Dias, “Lolo,” passed away Jan. 21, 2013.

He was born on Oct. 17, 1929, in Arequipa, Peru. He was the fourth of eight children. He lost his father at an early age, which gave him a very strong sense of family that he passed down to his own children. He obtained a Bachelor’s in Sociology and a Law Degree from Universidad Nacional de San Agustin in Arequipa. He married his high school sweetheart and had four children, Mariuska, Sandra, Aldo and Lorena. He and his wife had just celebrated 50 years of marriage.

After graduation, he practiced law for a few years and then realized his true passion was teaching. He became a professor at Universidad Nacional de San Agustin in Arequipa. He was the Dean of the Department of Philosophy from 1985 to 1995. He loved to read and spent all his professional life encouraging students to read. He was a Professor at this institution for 35 years. He taught philosophy and sociology; he was loved and respected for his intelligence and vast knowledge in his fields. He was a philosopher and historian. He authored many articles and published seven books, and he was writing an eighth book when he left us. His books will be the tangible memories we will cherish forever.

He was always happy, optimistic and enjoyed life with a passion. He loved to dance and he loved to eat. He loved to listen to classical music.  He loved to go for walks and he loved to talk about history and politics. He truly enjoyed being outdoors and he loved rainy days. One of his favorite things to do was walk around downtown Davis; he would strike up a conversation with anyone walking by. His friendly nature just made you want to be around him. Another one of his favorite pastimes was visiting the thrift shop on 3rd Street where he bought many figurines that he collected. He loved his family most of all, and he loved traveling with his five grandchildren Bryan, Ricardo, Lorena, Brandon and Matias.

He lived in Davis from 1996 to 2002 and then in El Macero from 2009 to 2012. He was a loving dad and has left an irreplaceable void in our hearts. He will be missed dearly and will never be forgotten.
