Plan Ahead

Johnny Joe Romero


Johnny Joe Romero was born to Ysidoro and Margaret Romero on March 27, 1951, in Dallas Texas.

John was the third out of four siblings. He grew up in Dallas, and graduated from Carter High School. John had many passions, but most notably he loved playing the drums. Throughout his life he was a drummer in several bands. One of the highlights of his music career was in 1969 at the Battle of the Bands in Galveston Texas. His band, White Stone, placed second at the competition, only to be beaten by the famous ZZ Top band who won first place. In the 70’s John, along with his brother Jesse, traveled with their band, Slow Fuze, and played shows all over the Southern US. After some years on the road, John moved back to the Dallas area and worked along side his brother Jesse in the AC and Heating business. John and Jesse had learned the trade from John’s Step-Father Curly, who they started working for at a very early age. Together, the brothers worked side by side for a company called M&M Mechanical for more than 20 years. In 1994 they became partners and took over the business, today it is known as Romero’s AC & Heating Services. John retired from the business in 2005, but even after retirement he worked part time on and off when needed. On April 30, 1981 John and his second wife, Pam, were blessed by the birth of their son Nicholas. Then in 1986, John met a desperate young woman in need of help. She was stranded, and her car needed a jump. This is how John met Janell. After a few months they struck up a friendship that soon blossomed into romance. They found a mutual love and devotion for the Lord. It was then that John and Janell rededicated their lives to Christ and started attending Church on the Rock. There they committed themselves to helping others by serving in the Overcomers group. After two short years of friendship and dating, John asked Janell to be his wife, and eight months later they tied the knot on August 26, 1989. Just a few months later, after starting their new life as husband and wife, they welcomed a baby girl into the world. On June 29, 1990, their daughter Rachael was born. With John’s son Nick and their daughter Rachael, life was good, and their family complete. In John’s free time he loved being involved in his church’s music ministry. For many years he played his drums in the church band. He loved leading worship ceremonies, and praising the Lord with joyful music. Music was a huge part of John’s life, and he was always up for a jam session. Throughout his life John had been apart of many bands, and even professionally recorded music. John also enjoyed fishing, spending time with his family, especially time with his two grandsons Santana and Izrael, leading bible studies, and being in God’s word. John was a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan, and loved to support his team. After retirement, John spent his days at home with his wife and family.

On March 5, 2022, John passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family, and went to his Heavenly resting place to be with his Lord and Savior. John is preceded in death by his parents, Ysidoro and Margaret Romero, and his in-laws, Melvin and Elaine Hall. Those left to cherish his memory, his wife of 33 years, Joyace Janell Romero of Cleburne, his son Nick Romero and daughter in-law Megan of Fort Worth, his daughter Rachael Romero of Cleburne, his sister Mary Margaret “Margie” Romero Castillo and husband Sabino of Duncanville, his sister Mary Juanita “Janie” Romero Orozco of Dallas, his brother Jesse Romero and wife Brenda of Waxahachie, his four grandchildren, Kaylee and brother Tate of Memphis, TN., and Santana and brother Izrael of Cleburne, as well as many nephews and nieces.

    A man that we all knew as Johnny Romero was called up to Heaven to be with the Lord. Johnny was a good man and a disciple for Jesus. He will be missed by all who knew him and will live in their Hearts. He is now with Jesus, a destination he has been searching for so many years. Rest in Peace Johnny.

    John was faithful church member, faithful worshipper, musician and friend. He loved to help those with drug and alcohol problems. He had several physical issues, but fought through them with great grace. He has finally made it to his true home in heaven. Miss you my friend

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Thank you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
