Love and Support for the family of Johnny Diaz. Beneficiary of donations will be Dianne Diaz the mother of Johnny Diaz. 

As many of you have heard, our dear friend Johnny Diaz, passed away Monday, February 11, 2019. At 28 years old, his death was very unexpected and we are all still in shock over the untimely passing.   There is no doubt that Johnny lived and breathed life wherever he went.  He brought love and joy to whomever he touched.  To his close friends, he also provided loyalty and genuine companionship that no other could give.  Never to think of himself first, our selfless Johnny placed all his friends on pedestals and gave us his heart.  He was a man of his words and truly epitomized the meaning of friendship.  Always the first to offer help when needed and willing to travel great distances for his friends...this was our Johnny.  He loved his friends more than life itself and would do anything to keep us safe and sound.  He was our brother and protector...our kind and gentle angel of life.  

Johnny was passionate about art, the movies, and fashion design (loved them boots and colorful scarves)!  Anyone could definitely see his iconic flair as soon as he stepped into the room with his suave saunter and warm smile.  Always the creative individual he was, Johnny loved designing his own jackets and was eager to get his label, Johnny Reid, up and running.  He loved perusing the local art galleries and catching the latest movies with his friends.  And that is what defined our Johnny...his love and loyalty to all his friends.  This, we can not and will not, ever forget.  

Johnny will have a celebration of life service on

Please join his family and friends in remembrance of the wonderful friend we all knew and loved.

Johnny did so much for all of us and showed us the true meaning of authentic friendship and love.  He always had our backs and now it is our turn to give back.  We are reaching out to his community and family of friends for donations to help with any daily as well as impending funeral expenses.  Johnny was family to ALL of us.  He loved his friends and family so much and we need to help out.   He always gave us his heart and soul and it is during this difficult time we ask for consideration of a financial donation for his family.  No contribution is too small and we know Johnny would appreciate this. 

He’s probably tipping his hat at us all and giving us his memorable laugh....somewhere Johnny continues to look over us as our guardian angel as he always did.  We will all be reunited one day Johnny.  Can’t wait to see what jacket you’ll be wearing when you meet us. 

We thank you and love you.
