Johnny was a kind-hearted man who loved being with his family and friends. He especially enjoyed being with his mom and his siblings. Johnny wasn’t afraid to show affection toward the ones he loved and empathy to those who crossed his path. He loved telling stories, jokes and many things he loved doing. He always had a positive mind, even on his bad days. He would always bring up a good memory to maintain a positive mindset. Johnny enjoyed many things in life, video games, working, on vehicles and motors, listening to audio stories, his job and helping others in need. Johnny was a very caring young man, it was always others before himself. He carried his rosary and continued praying for others. He was a beautiful boy, inside and out. Johnny truly had a heart of Gold.
