Willie Romero Jr.

March 7, 1963 — March 23, 2024


        Willie Romero Jr, age 61, passed away March 23, 2024, in Albuquerque, NM. He was born on March 07, 1963, to his parents Frances Garcia and Willie Romero Sr. in Albuquerque, NM.

He was preceded in death by his wife Janice Romero; his sister, Marty Lucero; his brother, Johnny Romero; and his mother-in-law, Martha Skinner. 

He is survived by his children, Willie Romero III and wife Kenia Romero, Raquel Verhoff; brothers, Alfred Lucero, Gilbert Romero; his grandchildren, Willie IV, Serenity Verhoff, and Sienna Verhoff; The extended family whom he helped raise, Ricky Lucero, Angel Lucero, Valarie and Loren Tafoya (Lily, Gigi, and Aubri), Jose Lucero (Jazzy), Christine Santos, Theresa Anaya (Adriana and Devon), Yegin Roper (Chaz and Ava), and Tara Rumore (Sandro and Eva); and many other loving grandchildren, family, and friends. 

       Willie was an amazing, knowledgeable, and selfless family man. He was a son, husband, father, mother, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. He was a great mechanic, handyman, and teacher. 

       He excelled at everything. Will took pride in everything he did from working on cars (mostly all of ours), to fixing things around the house (mostly our homes). He was the kind of person that would put your needs before his own. 

       He was a jack of all trades, but a master of only two. The first one was a father to his son Willie Romero III, and his daughter Raquel Verhoff. The second was being a grandfather to his grandkids, Willie Romero IV, Serenity Verhoff, and Sienna Verhoff. 

      Will's arms were open wide to people who were in need. He would give you a place to stay, food to eat, a car to drive, or the shirt off his own back. He was a great listener, problem solver, role model, confidant, or simply a shoulder to cry on. He was always there if you needed him for anything. 

       He never asked for anything or expected anything in return. He looked at every side of the story, and never passed judgment. In our book, he was the best! Will was a man who loved everyone, and a man that was loved by everyone who knew him. 

      His love for his family was his greatest attribute. As we celebrate his life, and lay him to rest, we aren't saying goodbye by any means. This is a I'll see you all later, and we will meet again someday. As Willie would say to us all " keep moving on as best you can, stay strong, roll one up, take a toke for me and pass it on. I'll always be right there with you all. I am still with you no matter what and I Love You All". Willie made sure he would never be forgotten and will be truly missed.
