On Monday, June 6, 2022, Peresilano “Johnnie” Aguero, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 88 in his home located in Junction, TX. Johnnie was born on November 17, 1933, in Junction, TX, and grew up surrounded by siblings Nora, Louis, Mary and Lolo.
Peresilano, known to friends and family as “Johnnie,” “Papo,” “Chano,” and or “Tano,” finally went to join his dear and beloved wife Connie “Mamo” Aguero. He was not only well known for his numerous accomplishments in sheep shearing competitions, exceptional fishing skills, and picking pecans but for his big heart. Johnnie and Connie helped many immigrant families during their journeys to achieve the American dream without any expectations.
He will be greatly missed by family and friends for his instilling values, motivating others to be better, setting high expectations, and primarily for his willingness to help others anytime needed. He was always full of energy and was even still sheep shearing at the age of 86.
Johnnie is survived by his brother, Lolo Aguero; sister, Nora Valdez; sons, Alex Roland Aguero and John Anthony Aguero; nine grandchildren, twenty-six great-grandchildren, as well as numerous great-great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He proceeded in death by his parents, Jose Aguero and Mary Ross; siblings, Louis Aguero and Mary Perales; wife of 50 plus years, Connie Aguero, and daughter, Connie Ann Aguero.
