Obituary for John Devereaux Herrera

John Devereaux  Herrera
On May 29th, 2022, our family patriarch, John D. Herrera, passed away at 83 years of age in Alamogordo, New Mexico.

John was born February 28th, 1939, to Pete and Natividad Herrera in Tularosa, New Mexico.
After Natividad passed a few weeks after giving birth, John was adopted by relatives Sam and Isabelle Romero, who provided a loving home and good upbringing. In 1962 he married the love of his life Stella Duran and had three children.

John served in the National Guard, sold insurance for Met Life, owned Herrera’s Bail Bond and Private Investigations with his wife Stella, and worked for the District Attorney’s office as the Chief Investigator. His civic duties included being President of the Young Democratic Party, Chatterbox CB Club, Boles Acres Lions Club, The Eagles Club, and the Elks Club.

John enjoyed being outdoors, hunting, fishing, gardening, cooking, and inviting others to have a “Good cup of Coffee and a Donut” with him. His door was always open and welcoming. He also enjoyed spending time with his family and grandchildren.

John is preceded in death by his wife Stella, parents Pete and Natividad Herrera, Sam and Isabelle Romero, siblings Pete Herrera (Loyola), Santos Herrera (Archie), Ralph Herrera, Virginia Molina (Pete), Helen Romero, Nellie MacNeill (Harry), Margie Phillips, Raymond Romero (Paz),

John is survived by his sister Mary Herrera Stanfill, son John Herrera, daughters Annette Neal (James) and Angelica Lucero (Danny), three beautiful grandchildren Jocelyn Neal (Amber), Danny Lucero, and Kaylan Neal.

Services are scheduled for June 13th, at Our Lady of The Light Catholic Church La Luz, NM, beginning at 9:00 am with Family and friends viewing, 9:30 Rosary recited by Linda Villavicencio, 10:00 am Mass by Father Montgomery with burial to immediately follow at Our Lady of The Light Cemetery.
