John C. Tapia "JT" entered into eternal rest on January 29, 2014 at his home in Hanford. He was born on July 23, 1922 to Donicio and Claudia Tapia. JT was born and raised in Hanford, California.
The Guest Book is expired.
Recently JT took a trip to Las Vegas which he enjoyed the entertainment and the wonderful food. He possesses a lot of qualities, but one that stands out is that he was always a gentleman everyone that knew him loved him. He had a dream recently that it was snowing-beautiful snow and that made him feel like a child again.
JT had a wonderful life with his wife Maria, whom he lost in 2007. He leaves behind his five sons which he loved dearly and equally; Johnny Jr, Antonio, Mike, Alex and Ray. He also leave behind a legacy of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
"JT we will miss you dearly", but we know that you are resting in peace in the arms of God.
