Thank you for posting this. I was Johnny's sweetheart when I was 19 and he was 18...I never saw him since then and always wondered what became of his life, he and his parents were very dear to me. I would really like to know how he died...

Since you left no address, a reply is impossible. It was an accident. There were newspaper articles at the time. said...

My name is Elvia Medina from Las Vegas NV. I lived in CA when I was dating Johnny, hence the reason why I lost contact with him and his family. I googled his name just thinking about him one day and this is what I found, much to my surprise!! I always thought I'd get to see him again. I prayed for him a lot after we broke up and always remembered his parents dearly. His father's church was on of the first that we visited when we recorded our first album "Los Hermanos Medina" back in 1980!! Thank you for the information...I will keep lifting his family in prayer.

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the channel through which I was able to make contact with the Huerta family. It's been wonderful to be able to reconnect with them. I had no idea who you were, but now I know. I had a sister who died of breast cancer that spread due to lack of attention and I have another sister who is a survivor.......I see you are a breast cancer survivor, praise God! I pray God keeps using you to bless the lives of others as you blessed mine through the information you posted and your service to again, I thank you!!
In His love, Elvia Medina-Reyes
