Johnny Rumigio Gonzales, age 83, a resident of Bosque Farms, passed away on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, at his home.

He was born in Las Vegas, N.M., to his parents, Luciano Gonzales and Gavian Lovato Gonzales.

He was a driven professional with an unmatched work ethic. Johnny retired from JW Jones Construction as a project superintendent, where, over the years, the company built bridges around New Mexico.

He is survived by his loving wife, Theresa A.
