OBITUARY: Johnny Gonzales

d. September 10, 2023

Johnny Gonzales, age 43, a resident of Questa, passed away peacefully on September 10, 2023 after a long battle with cancer.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Frank and Ruth Gonzales, and maternal grandparents Manuel and Idela Romero.

Johnny owned and operated Double Eagle Electric for many years and was the pastor at Freedom Center Church in Questa, New Mexico. In his spare time, he enjoyed taking apart machinery to machines to match them back together. But his biggest love was for his family.

He is survived by his wife Kristi Gonzales; children Izziah Gonzales, Micah Gonzales, Mariah Jane Gonzales, Zachariah Gonzales, and Hezekiah Gonzales; parents Ben “Speedy” and Sally Gonzales; brother Ben Gonzales, Jr.; mother-in-law Naomi Vialpando; sisters-in-law Juanita Swazo (Kaitlyn) and Alicia Vialpando (Francisco); nephew Elijah Molina; best friend who he considered as a brother, Eric Romero (Stephanie); and many aunts, uncles, relatives, and friends.

Funeral services were held on Tuesday September 19, 2023 at Living Word Ministries.
