The circumstances surrounding Juan’s passing are both heartbreaking and deeply painful. Authorities have reported that Juan, aged 51, and his wife were attempting to load their boat onto a trailer after an evening of fishing at the lake. Tragically, the boat had floated away from the dock, prompting Juan to bravely swim out to reach it.
In a moment of desperation, Juan signaled for help, but in his selflessness, he pushed his wife away as she attempted to come to his aid. This heartbreaking act of sacrifice underscores the love and bravery that defined Juan’s character.
Juan Lamarr Wyrtch’s life came to a tragic end on the shores of Lake Thicketty in the Macedonia Community of Cherokee County. His body was discovered approximately 60 feet offshore, and the dedicated members of the CKC Volunteer Fire Department, based in Blacksburg, undertook the difficult task of recovering his body at a depth of 17 feet.
In this time of immense grief, we extend our deepest condolences to Juan’s wife, family, and friends. The pain of his loss is felt not only by his loved ones but by our entire community. Together, we share in the sorrow of this devastating event.
