Obituary

“JJ” Johnny Jesus Raigoza Jr., 45, also affectionately known as “Goz”, lived in Castle Rock. He was born
on November 22, 1976 to Arlene and the late Johnny "JJ" Raigoza Sr. He is survived by daughter, Dakota; his former wife, Andrea-Raigoza-Lopez, and daughter, Neveah; his mother, Arlene Raigoza and three siblings: Bonita (Richard) Pope from Palmetto, Florida ; David (Pinky) Raigoza from Pueblo; Gina (Kevin) Meek from Pueblo; God-Brother, Jesus Turrubiate; Several nieces & nephews: Raina & Robert Schwanz & great-niece: Melanie; Daniel Lopez; Michael Pope; Brianna Pope; Issac Carbajal; Ethan Meek; and Juan Cyrus Raigoza.  numerous Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and many Friends.

He graduated from Pueblo South High 1995; attended the US Naval Academy, School of Engineering & Science in 1994; and attended P.C.C. & CSU-Pueblo.

He had been most recently employed by Builders 1st Source in Denver, as a Materials Handler II; Formerly was a Program Director & Substance Abuse Counselor (CACIII) for the Awareness Institute, Inc. in Pueblo; and also an Adolescent Substance Abuse Counselor for the Colorado Boys Ranch in LaJunta.

JJ was everybody's “Go-to-Guy" for anything from technology; business advice; problem solving; & tax issues. He was a very caring fatherly figure who listened attentively; made you laugh, and was a great advisor. He was intelligent; articulate; had an excellent memory; and was a prankster all-in-one. He valued others, and was a volunteer youth coach for several seasons at the then, Pitts Middle School. He really was “his Father's son" even though he would declare that this comparison was “unfounded” yet, he humbly was proud of that fact. JJ was a voracious reader particularly history; sports trivia and was a Star Wars Buff. He also loved to camp with family, fish, play pool and other games, and cook his special meals. But his main love and concern was the joy of his life: Dakota.
JJ passed away Dec. 18, 2021, surrounded by his family, who will miss him profoundly.
