Johnny was a great man, a loyal husband, a loving father, the best grandpa ever, a hard worker, and the biggest Dallas Cowboys fan.

My Daddy has always been the most important man in my life and losing him has le an empness that I can’t explain. He was not the dad that talked about his emoons but there was never a doubt he loved my Mom, his kids and grandkids (maybe a little more than us). I was blessed to grow up seeing what real uncondional love is. My Daddy was sick for a long me, but he always made it seem like it was no big deal and I know that was him making sure that we wouldn’t worry. Even when we found out about the cancer and hospice he was making sure we were ok. I have a lot of great memories of my Daddy, but
the best for me are my Dad coming to my house, making him burgers and having a beer (I don’t even like beer, but I drank with my Dad) and watching the Cowboys.

I love and miss you Daddy. I thank God every day that I was blessed to have you as my Dad.

I am proud to say that I am and will always be a Daddy’s Girl.

Love Always

My mind knows you are gone but my heart still can’t accept it. I am heartbroken you had to leave us but I am glad you are no longer suffering. You were so many wonderful things, but best of all you were my daddy. I will cherish every memory, every hug and kiss that we shared. Matty had the best Grandpa ever, he had his best friend and Grandpa rolled into one amazing man. We will both carry you in our hearts forever.

We love you,
April & Matthew Munoz

My uncle Johnny was so funny and had the best laugh. I remember him calling my brother and I baby ducks when we were little because we followed my mom everywhere. He will be greatly missed. My condolences to Aunt Gloria and family. I love you Tio.

My big brother Johnny was a special man. As a young elementary school girl I remember walking to Johnny and Gloria's duplex after school. I went with both of them to several of their family outings and it was so much fun! Johnny always had a way of making me feel special with his humor and laughter. My brother had a lovely smile and was gracious towards others. Condolences to Gloria and family!
Love, Monie

From the time I met Johnny he's always been a very kind, sweet, and loving man. We spent most holidays at his home then our own, and in his honor to call him and his family our second family. His laugh was contagious and his spirit filled the room with love and joy!! It's been a pleasure and will always cherish the 13+ years of memories with him and his lovely family.
