Johnny “Stormy” Valdez Jr, born on October 1st, 1959, on a stormy day in Salida, Colorado to John and Katherine “Martinez” Valdez. That’s where he got his nickname! He was a wonderful man who loved his family more than anything in this world. Stormy left home to heaven on September 26th, 2022 in Canon City, Colorado. Stormy is survived by his two children Bryan (Sonya) and Stormie (Kelly) Valdez and 2 grandchildren Deven and Domanik. Sisters Barbara (Donald) Cisneros, Louise (Miguel) Montelongo, Shelly (Lionel) Manzanares, and brother Donald (Robin) Valdez, and numerous nieces and nephews! Stormy was always ready to help anyone he could and made friends with everyone. He made sure he’d make his rounds calling everyone just to say hi or to tell them anything new happening in his life. Stormy made sure he attended every event or party he was invited to. He was a big fan of old country music and Spanish music, loved to dance and jam out. When stormy wasn’t relaxing at home watching westerns, he’d spend his time with his visiting with family, or just driving around seeing who he’d run into. He was loved by so many people and had a sense of humor that was able to make anyone’s day better! Along with an amazing smile and laugh that was genuinely contagious. His departure to heaven has left us with an enormous loss, he will be sorely missed and always loved and remembered for the amazing man that he was. Stormy was preceded in death by his parents, John and Katherine Valdez and brother William “Billy” Valdez of Salida, Co. Grandparents Fred and Mollie Martinez of Colorado Springs, Co. and Juan and Amalia Valdez, of Salida Co.
