John was an amazing person, he was a very gentle man, my memories of him were always with his big smile & infectious laughter.l laugh now when i think of the yard sales that he used to have, he never let me walk away without buying something,whether i needed it or not..he would say to me you need this cuz, & one time i walked away with a weed eater, even though i lived in an apartment. He will be deeply missed & we will all be the worse off without him, for people like John are for now John, Jehovah will hopefully keep you in his care & keeping..sleep in peace Vicky...

I've known John since I was a child. I don't know how that came to be but I grew up with him always around. He helped me with my homework often. We played a lot of card games and board games growing up. We also worked together at one time where we carpooled together. I made him late for work quite often! John had this laugh like no other could have. You are all familiar with it. Even if it wasn't funny you'd laugh after hearing him laugh. I last saw John at our family barbecue last Summer enjoying the day with his other family. The Flores family! John is a brother, a Godfather, a Compadre, a friend and just a good man. We've lost a kind soul but I have no doubt that John is painless and free right next to his loved ones in heaven watching over his family. John we love you and you will be deeply missed.

My heart hurts for you but I know you are free and with mom again. Something you have been wanting since she left us. You are truly loved and will be missed by so many. Ava and Adriana miss you so much but I promise you they will know how much their papo loved them. Come visiting me dad so I know you’re happy.
