John Antone Herrera, 49, of Kiefer went to be with the Lord, on May 12th 2023 surrounded by his family.
John was born on October 17, 1973 in Gillette, Wyoming to Tomas and Guadalupe Herrera. John spent
his adolescent years playing football, hanging out with his friends and drinking a nice cold beer. He
graduated from Dumas High School. He was employed by Amazon as a maintenance mechanic.
In 1994, John met the love of his life, Victoria in Dumas, TX. The following year they had their first
daughter. Soon after, they moved to Oklahoma and six years later they had twins. John and Victoria were
married for 28 years. John and Victoria have 3 children, Marissa, Aryiel and Sabyi.
John was known for his good cook outs and his great sense of humor. He made everyone laugh with his
juiced up stories. He never met a stranger. He was always willing to help others and made everyone feel
comfortable. John spent quality time with his daughters teaching them softball and spent time with his
granddaughter teaching her to say “tata.”
John enjoyed his spare time camping, traveling, mowing lawns, getting good deals and spending time
with his family and friends. John spent most Sundays cooking out and watching his favorite team the
Dallas Cowboys. He will forever be missed.
John is survived by wife, Victoria Herrera and his 3 children, Marissa Herrera, Aryiel Herrera, Sabyi
Herrera and his granddaughter Avaya Thompson.
John is also survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Ted and Anna Estraca; his brothers, Rumaldo
Herrera and Thomas Herrera; his sisters, Yolanda Levya and Gloria Herrera; his nieces and nephews,
and his great nieces and nephews.
John was preceded in death by his parents Tomas and Guadalupe Herrera, and his brother and
sister-in-law, Mike and Margarita Herrera.
