He was an outstanding athlete at Springer High School. In 1987 he enlisted in the Army National Guard and served honorably in the war in Iraq. Johnny began his career as a correctional officer in October of 1990. After rising through the ranks, he eventually reached the position of Deputy Warden at the New Mexico State Penitentiary. Johnny was a loving husband, father, son, brother and friend. He had a very big heart and was unselfish, dedicating much of his time coaching youth teams in Albuquerque. He always did for others expecting nothing in return. Johnny's memory will live with us forever. His bright spirit and sense of humor will be deeply missed. He was very devoted to his Catholic faith and raised his family with the same religious values. Friends may visit Monday, February 8, 2010 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. at French Mortuary, Westside Chapel.
