Juan “John Boy” will be missed by his family whom he enjoyed spending time with. He had a passion for wrestling, coloring and always showing people around him love. He had special ways of showing it by his head taps, nose to nose rubs, or his “why you” quotes. John Boy was diagnosed with Down’s syndrome at birth but was rarely ever treated as if he had a disability; he was a rock star in most cases. This rock star even though not celebrated on T. V. will always be up in lights to the people that had a chance to know him.
Rosary was held on Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at Trevino Royal Oaks Funeral Chapels in Dilley, 7pm. Funeral mass was celebrated on Wednesday, January 9th at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, 10:00am. Interment followed at the Dilley Cemetery.
