Johnny Chris Gonzales Obituary

Johnny Chris Gonzales, 56, passed away peacefully on July 26, 2014.

Johnny was born on Oct. 8, 1957, in Tularosa to Calletano and Civilia Gonzales.

He married his one true love, Tracy Deann Mirabal, on July 5, 1977. Together they raised three children -- Christopher Gonzales, 35, who married Tiada Gonzales of Alamogordo; Michael Gonzales, 34, and Jasmine Gonzales, 19, both of Albuquerque. The couple had eight grandchildren. Johnny loved spending time with his grandchildren.
Johnny was the youngest of seven siblings: Patricia Montoya, Margaret Baker, Sally Childs, Beatrice Navarro, Ramona Chavez and Antonio Gonzales.

Johnny and Tracy worked over a decade for the Coulston Foundation where they cared for chimpanzees and Rhesus monkeys.
Johnny loved to be outdoors. He spent weekends fishing with family and close friends. He was also an avid hunter, always looking forward to the next season.

A few of his hobbies included: riding his motorcycle, working on his truck and watching old western movies.
Johnny was a very funny man, telling jokes and finding humor others missed. He was quick with the smart-aleck remarks and snappy comebacks when joking around.

Pastor Couy Griffin will lead the memorial service to be held on Friday August 1, 2014 at 6 p.m. in The New Heart Cowboy Church located at 2930 N. White Sands Blvd., Alamogordo.

A reception will follow at 3712 Fernwood Ave. in Alamogordo.
