John Albert Barrera Born: 07/08/1966 - 03/15/2020 John passed away suddenly in the city of Phoenix, Arizona. He was met in heaven by his loving brother Joe, whom John truly admired. He is survived by his mother Rosa Hidalgo, and his siblings Grace / James / Gloria / Robert / Sandra and Richard. He also leaves behind his children the eldest of all is Alex Barrera Melton of which he loved each of them very much. He also leaves behind his life partner William... aka "BILLY" who also loved him more than John truly knew. John was known for doing anything he could for everyone he loved. He was all about his family! I believe John's greatest accomplishment would be he never wanted anyone to worry, as he worried about everyone else. He always put others first and their concerns. Other accomplishments would be his ability to make others feel secure and safe, John was always there for his family through thick and thin and he always made everyone feel safe. John had a huge heart, and he was compassionate and always put other’s needs before his own. He loved animals (his two best friends Jack and CHICHI) which would never leave his side, he loved the beach and the water and of course his electronics... (MR TINKER MAN) as we knew him. He was known for wanting to know how things worked so he took things apart and put them back together (sometimes leaving out a few parts) but this was John. He is truly missed
