Amadeo John ‘Johnny’ Madrid

  Services for Amadeo John Madrid, Johnny, will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Mammoth Assembly of God Church, 201 Kino St., Mammoth, with Pastors Nathan and Leasa Hogan officiating, with the support of Pastors Carlos and Patty Gonzales. This is a change in venue from the information in last week’s newspaper.

  Johnny was born on Sept. 16, 1953 in Pueblo, Colorado and passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with renal failure on Jan. 9, 2020, with his son, Gabriel, by his side. 

  Johnny was a loving father, friend and a devoted Christian who enjoyed preaching the gospel. He had a love for God that he carried close to him during his 40-year run with renal failure. 

  Serving in many different callings throughout the Tri-Community, Johnny was a member, then appointed as the pastor of the Iglesia De Dios church in downtown Mammoth. He was awarded the Certificate of Appreciation in recognition of his service as Cub Master by the Boy Scouts of America in 1992. Prior to returning to Mammoth, Johnny worked for American Fence Co. in Show Low as a yard foreman before being diagnosed with renal failure and moving back to Mammoth. 

  His greatest love was the Lord. He enjoyed his fellowship with many of what he called his “brothers and sisters” throughout the Tri-Community and he was well known for his faith in God. Johnny was an inspiration to many who knew him. He was a beacon of encouragement for his dialysis family and was known for having made several house visits throughout his life to speak to recipients who were discouraged to continue on dialysis. Johnny was known for opening his home to many in the Tri-Community who were affected by the narcotics lifestyle, welcoming them in to lend an ear and provide words of wisdom – with prayer to follow. 

  Johnny always had his guitar and Bible in close proximity. He loved his time playing guitar and singing with his brothers, while teaching nephews how to play guitar. 

  He is preceded in death by his father, Amadeo Madrid, and mother, Rosario ‘Rose’ Apodaca Madrid. He is survived by his two sons, Christopher J Madrid and Gabriel J Madrid (Mandy); siblings, Steve Madrid (Lydia), Manuel Madrid, Millie Madrid, Betty Martinez (Jesus), Arnold Madrid (Maria), Lillian Madrid, Lorenzo Madrid and Andrew Madrid (Joyce); 5 grandchildren, Hannah Moran, Andreya Madrid, Nicholas Madrid, Gianna Madrid and Adrian Madrid. 

  Johnny is a beacon whose bright light will not easily fade. He will be missed and loved by all. His family appreciate all those who have helped and cared about Johnny, all the Nurses and staff at the Fresenius Kidney Care in Mammoth. 

  Johnny’s memorial service will be followed by a luncheon at the Mammoth Community Center. A balloon tribute will take place at the luncheon to celebrate Johnny’s 40 Years on Dialysis.
