Javier Herrera Obituary

Javier was born on April 26, 2001. From the beginning, he was a fighter and fight for his journey in life until his last second. His journey began with his mom Rocio Herrera when she needed to be hospitalized during her 5th pregnancy month. After going thru the complicated situation a beautiful April 26th on 2001 he came to light our world. All his life was a battle and from hospital to hospital doctor to doctor he continued his fight. At the age of 7, he was diagnosed with asthma. Regardless of his condition he always shows his passion for music and cars. Shortly, he began to learn how to play so many instruments but the guitar was his favorite. Singing was another of his passions and asthma was going to stop him. He was a noble, lovely person and always had a smile on his face regardless no matter what situation was going on. Friendly was probably his nickname since where ever he was he will make friends with random conversations and a contagious smile. We lost him on Sunday, April 23, 2023, to an asthma attack and now he's flying high playing his instruments and singing to our heavenly father in heaven. He will always be remembered for his smile as a beloved SON, BABY BRO, UNCLE, NEPHEW, and FRIEND. Today we cry for your loss but sure know we will meet again until then baby bro keep us safe and give us the strength to keep going without you.
