Johnny was a very good friend of my brother Ruben. In the neighborhood where we all grew up, everyone knew him as “Boogie”! No one knows why but we all knew him as Boogie! Anytime I saw him, he always had a hug and a smile! This world got a bit dimmer with Boogie gone! RIP old friend- God Bless all of your family!❤️🙏

Daddy, we will miss you so much! I don't even know where to begin. I thank you for always making time for our family. You would do anything for any of us. I am forever grateful that you were my Daddy and grandpa to my children. Your love, passion for life and family will live on in each and every one of us--your children, grand children, and great grand children. We will treasure every memory for they create laughter and love in our hearts.
Daddy, I am sure you are watching down upon us and seeing what a lasting impression you left on all those you encountered in your life. We have had such an outpouring of love and blessings from family, friends who've become family, and all those who just love you and want to do something to honor your memory and our family.
Thank you for always having faith in me, and the sacrifices you made for me. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I didn't have the foundation you and mom built for us. See you in Heaven, Daddy, I love you chingos! Thank you from your grateful daughter, with all the love in my heart. Rest in Paradise
~💙~ Jeana
