John was born in Oregon on Sept. 13, 1957 to Oscar and Marta Romero.

He is also survived by his parents Oscar and Marta Romero of Winnemucca, his six sisters, Benita (Freddy Martinez) of Carrizo Springs, Texas; Patsy Romero (Tony Valdez), Margie Huerta, Rachel (Billy Braggs), and Linda (Steve Sevy) all of Winnemucca; and Becky Romero of Elko, Nev.

John also had a very large extended family in Texas, Oregon, Idaho and California who also loved and will miss him dearly.

In Winnemucca John had many treasured friends whom he considered family. He was a man who helped anyone whenever he could and not expect anything but friendship in return.

John worked most of his life in farming where he made most of his lifelong friends, and he spent the last few years of his life working in the mining industry.

John enjoyed fishing, cooking, summertime barbecues with family and friends, traveling to visit family and friends and watching the Dallas Cowboys.

John did not leave us without leaving us many great memories.
